Max's tip: "MERLOT"

Max Guyot (interviewed on the topic of his video "BROTHERHOOD" filmed in Nancy and Paris, here) most definitely knows what's up as he was the first to bring "MERLOT" to LIVE's attention - that is, two whole hours before its author could even find the time to e-mail us the link!

So, this "MERLOT" tastes like forty strong minutes of San Francisco brillance, equally brillantly collected by Ryan Flores featuring, on the other side of the lens, la crème de la crème of the modern local scene: Jameel Douglas (whose Parisian peregrinations you might remember from here) wraps up no less than a part in the pure tradition of the genre, then followed by the likes of Chris Athans, Ryan Barlow, Jesse Narvaez, Tom Farrell, James Sayres, Alex Greemann or Harry Hafner, amongst others, dotting the timeline... Even some classy visitors showed up: Léo VallsConnor KammererJimmy Larkz or César Dubroca too are in, and that's without even counting Tobin Valverde, Kyle Cielencki (to get more familiar with here), Justin Henry, Simon Isaksson, and even renowned filmers such as Zach Chamberlin and Brett Nichols who both broke free from the record button for a minute. And then more, with Evan Collison and finally Cody Rosenthal, who completes an eventual picture that's vibrant of many a color, style and spot (all read with science, those ones).

"MERLOT" is the result of years worth of skating and filming; it is therefore only logical that its aromas feel so fine and sweet, with a punchy aftertaste to boot!

So, will you be grabbing that bottle or what?...

Retro-Future

D.O.A. is another name LIVE has brought to your attention before: also known as Dead On Arrival, the enterprise is ran by Steve Fletch, formerly of Northern Co. who eventually decided to move on to do his own thing. For their newest promo video, he attempted to "make the A Tribe Called Quest 'Scenario' video into a skate edit"; a description as exciting as the final result, very punchy and full to the brim of efficient skateboarding. Let's highlight the return of the great Kyle Cielencki and Eric Nguyen duo, in front of and behind the camera respectively, and that Stephen Buggica got involved as well, amongst others.

Over the past months, LIVE hasn't been without reporting to you about the works of Eric Nguyen, the skilled and hyperactive VX-1000 enthusiast from Texas, Kyle Cielencki's skateboarding, or Steve Fletch's brand Dead On Arrival, an initiative founded on his past experience with Northern Co.. All folks who've been patient enough to recount their respective stories to us, and to you, in the links above.

Today, what the aforementioned folks have been cooking up was just revealed to be a new promo for the equally aforementioned Dead On Arrival (D.O.A. if you're into them catchy acronyms). On the menu: classical music, and some quite exquisite urban roller planking signed by the feet and general body languages of Chris Saint-HilaireKyle CielenckiChris JataJohn DevineKyle RemondinoAndrew Grabowski, Jimmy ChungP.J. Castellano and Ben Havran. Eric handled the editing, although he didn't film everything: the list of contributing filmers is quite lengthy (although that doesn't result in any visual inconsistencies here) and comprises some familiar names such as the one of Stephen Buggica, the man behind the Shaqueefa "Mixtape" videos, interviewed here.

Forty-Three Is Twelve!

Maybe you remember Calvin Millar, the Austin, Texas-based filmer who recently gifted the interwebs with this little gem of a Paris trip clip. Well he's back - and quite drastically, let's reckon as it's a full-length video he's delivering this time, for Elias Bingham's skateshop No-Comply just now celebrating its twelfth anniversary. "12 STREET" can be peeped no further than just above, without a surprise only to reveal itself as a slick watch, full of Roger decks, great vibes and one amazing Ryan Thompson part!

D.O.A. "Winter 1997" Promo / PREMIERE

Modern enthusiasm around a short-lived clothing brand from the mid-nineties surely could appeal to many a nostalgic geezer or youthful wannabe these days, except this is Steve's board brand this new web edit is a promo for. A longtime fan of the original FIT "Industry" section from 411VM, the late institution of a skate video magazine (pre-Internet days...), Steve is going all the way in with a recreation of said clip accompanied by a FIT-inspired line of D.O.A. product (with Pat Washington as a living common denominator). Two decades later, the wheels have turned! Here's what Steve had to tell us about the whole process.

Parisian life!

The City of Lights as seen through the prism of Calvin Millar's refined VX-1000 and Super 8 touch - look no further, "La Vie En Paris" is what you get; an entirely logical [sic] as this moving postcard results from the leisurely holiday trip of a tight-knit crew of visitors from Texas. The edit makes for a poetic intepretation of the streets of the French capital, and Kyle Slinky will make your head spin just as much as the sightseeing!

Birthday Pool party

After treating us well with La Armonía, Eric Nguyen comes back, with the same team in front of his fisheye, to celebrate the nine springs of the Huston’s Select skateshop by offering us a video that smells like summer, holidays and pool parties.
