Filming Crazy

LIVE has brought up Markus Bengtsson's video productions before - some might remember him as the Poetic Collective filmer - and several times, too; in addition to being prolific on the YouTubes, he's also the one responsible for handicrafting this new montage for Film Trucks (Jérémie Daclin's brainchild), and for actually showcasing it today on the sextuple V via TransWorld SKATEboarding and Solo Skate Mag.

Poetic Collective owner Tom Botwid's spins on ledge dancing most likely will make you dizzy, as the front truck specialist nails his into the coffin of many a bench spot all the way from his Scandinavian hometurf to the South of France; locked in around the cities of Bordeaux and Lyon, more specifically.

But just as Instagram is about to declare him the King of Gradignan, Léo Valls intercepts the other half of the timeline, only to remind us of his marble-rooted interpretative skills, of how Magenta are the people in charge here and of his nollie shifty flip, one we had been missing at least as much as the Bordeaux O.G.'s have been mourning the legendary Malraux spot ever since its demise.

This being said, let it be LIVE's turn to remind you of this documentary DC Shoes produced on Léo's political actions in Bordeaux, as to better appreciate the context of relative harmony on the spots compared to how bad things could get, say, just a few years back...

Regarding the filming, Markus recounts...

D-d-drew!

Andréa Dupré aka. Digital Drew can be found skating in (most of the time) Bordeaux, France, represents local skateshop Sirop d'érable and, as of late, has been loving it hanging out around the Poetic Collective homies. So of course, it was only a matter of time before he stockpiled enough footage with their filmer Markus Bengtsson (also quite the prolific type) for a full web clip of his own, which is what LIVE is presenting you, here. Quite the hungry ripper, that young Frenchman!

Swedish slappies

Our Swedish homies over at Poetic Collective just earned themselves the luxury of a worldwide-scale collaboration with Film Trucks, ex-Cliché founder Jérémie Daclin's new company and, as though to make it all the more official, the virus known for atrophying one's ollie muscles was spread all the way to and around Malmö - where some fine lads await us to reassure that the disease may not be that lethal after all. All filmed by Markus Bengtsson, also behind the recent Copenhagen edit: "Pas De Problème..."!

D.J. Dub's tip : "Pas de problème"...

The former freelancer for SuGaR back when the magazine was still reviewing records (reviewing what?) is back, and once again naively thought he'd be the one to let us know on the recent online drop of this new edit by Makke Bengtsson, most notably the immaculate filmer for the just-as-immaculate Swedish Poetic Collective. On the menu: his friends' holidays in Copenhagen, including - amongst a list of others - the unextinguishable Léo Valls as well as Le Rollersurfer, aka. Ben Koppl...
