PREMIERE / "Trois Trois Trois" / Arthur Du Sordet / INTERVIEW

Arthur Du Sordet, aka. Arthur Dus, already had briefly summed up his activity as a Nyon, Switzerland-based skate filmmaker for us the first time we shared some of his works; for those who might be struggling to keep up, he's the official camera operator and editing timeline specialist of local collective  Cranscityclub, whose new full-length video "TROIS TROIS TROIS" just dropped; and, if some of its sections have already been shared online before (which LIVE was teasing here), it is in its complete glory that today, we're getting to share this little audiovisual gem that's rooted in independent skateboarding as well as the authenticity of a motivated regional scene. As a complement, and in order to better retrace who's who and who did what before your next session (bound to happen as soon as your viewing is over) - you know the drill by now - we went to, again, question Arthur; you will find the full report from the interrogation room below, illustrated with a selection of photos by Albert Lopes!

Iron, lion, Nyon

What better way to make your Sunday than by running into a solid skate montage straight out of a striving, yet widely unrecognized scene - just one instance out of a good billion of them out there, really - despite the locals' best efforts on the field? Well at least, that's what we're more than happy to share with you today, under the form of this top notch edit made in Nyon, Switzerland - a small city strong of its seclusion from skate pop culture, its twenty thousand inhabitants and Arthur Du Sordet's talent when it comes to documentation duties, and the man didn't shy away from telling us a bit more:

"Just to contextualize, "Cranscityclub" or "333" is a skate collective type of thing that we run to try and push skating in our small town of Nyon, Switzerland. 

We organize skate lessons for the youth, contests, music gigs and we're basically the link between skateboarders and the local authorities - they entrust us with skatepark projects and whatnot.
Although we don't have 'flashy' skaters, the scene here is pretty huge; however, being a small town, we tend to feel kind of disconnected from the rest of the Swiss skate microcosm.
But that's only more fuel for my motivation when it comes to filming and dropping edits, as though to 'put Nyon on the map'!" - Arthur Du Sordet
And this particular edit, "333 x LEBLYZAR" is the opportunity for Ebly Kaeslin's rather unique style to shine - the man clearly doesn't care for the hottest trends in trick selection or, at least, knows how to retain only the best elements from them, it seems. The contrasted black and a white works well here, and the final result isn't without being reminiscent of "The Strongest of the Strange" by Pontus Alv, or some of the early Heroin videos, even - just to mention another trait that most people shouldn't complain about, really!
