Murilo Romão

PREMIERE / Vladimir 2018 / George Toland / INTERVIEW

Them lads never quit it! Over the past month the Internet has graced us with "Teddie", London head George Toland's R.A.D. new full-length video compiling one year worth of skateboarding by his crew filmed in many different locations throughout Europe; and last week, we were presenting you this interview and photo gallery of George Booth-Cole, the photographer of the posse and a talented one at that, who happens to document many of his mates' prowess on thirty-five millimeter film when the other George aims at the same in moving form via his trusted VX-1000. Both homonymous G's are no strangers to the most important skate video festival in Europe, the now longtime running Vladimir Film Festival occuring every September in Croatia (the 2017 documentary on which George was down to help out with already, contributing chunks of skate footage); and actually here they are today, showcasing a recap of some of the intense street skating that took place in between the exhibitions and screenings at the latest, 2018 edition of Vladimir, all filmed in the city of Pula, Croatia over the course of four days. The two played their respective roles as documentarists so well, we just had to catch up with the one who favors colors and tapes (click here for an interview with the other George), if anything just come up with enough banter to illustrate and punctuate with their souvenirs of stoke, sunshine and miscellaneous, sound shenanigans!

Braziliano-brazilian collab

Author of the "Flanantes" trilogy of independent Brazilian skate videos with a concept revolving on the skateboarders’ modern utilization of public spaces, Murilo Romão just came through with a collaboration piece with the good homies over at Blaze Supply. Said teamwork materializes under the form of a guest "Flanantes" model on Blaze, and this new web clip, streamable here. Quirky spots galore, and Murilo is shown excelling on them regardless of which end of the lens he happens to find himself on. A mandatory watch! And make sure to catch up with the 2018 dates for the Brazilian skate photo and video festival Mimpi while part of your head is down there!

Brazilian meanders

Brazilian meanders is exactly what you're up for right now, by the means of the new and last part of Murilo Romão's visual triptych of skate films. The ending punctuation of a series also comprising "Flanantes" and "Situacionistas" chronogically, "Deambulações" delivers as far as your recommended daily dose of urban exploration paired up with modern poetry.

Murilo's tip: Ruexistencia!

"This is a promo for "Ruexistencia", a video by my friend Renato Riguetti from Rio de Janeiro. Raw street and good song. Maybe in December, the full video is ready. P.S: Renato is from a family of street clowns and work in the trains too." Effectively, one can feel the raw vibes with a carioca flavor, and a soundtrack that could remind you of the Sabotage productions. This should help you cope with the rain.

Hot nights

The collective mind imagines Brasilian nights as panting and full of surprises, and the megalopolis of Sao Paulo could only fit the fantasy criteria… As seen by Murillo under the Flanantes microscope, local nights are more than busy, from the spot locs to the visitors: the creme de la creme of the national scene, with a particular way to look at the city. One will note the special work on sounds to create the mood for this street masterpiece!

Murilo's tip: "em movimento sincopado."

Our expert in all things filmed in Portuguese sends your way a rather radical dose of sun drenched street skateboarding… The Brazilian skating we love to watch!

Situacionistas

Back to Brazil, with the latest production of Murilo Romão, who we have mentioned before for both his talents in front and behind the camera. Hell, how many skate videos have made direct references to French intellectual Guy Debord!? Plus, this works as an amazing Who's Who of the second continent of skateboarding, even when it comes to older generations. But, you are mostly in for a large dose of sick skating put together the way you want it to be. Oh, and Murilo, from République to the famous Roosevelt Square of Sao Paulo is quite amazing in his very own relaxed tech…

Brazilian week: "Sob a aparente desordem"

Murilo Romão has his own take of the street… In the way he skates it, first of all, but also the way he captures it, with his very own video projects, including his most recent full length, Flanantes, that is reaching cult classic status in Brazil, for the way it captures Sao Paulo (where he is based) and Rio's scenes. Raw and cautious, clever and bold: this is Murilo and his vision!

Klaus Bohms alert!

We were already stoked on watching our buddy Klaus Bohms, especially on his home turf, showing Brazil to his gringos colleagues, but, damn, he is on a tear, here! Technical and powerful, with that pop that makes the difference… Let's not even mention what kind of rough spots he flies over! Apart from that, Westgate and Evan Smith aren't too shabby, either…
