Hugooooal!

Say what - Jdekprod isn't one of your YouTube channel subscriptions yet? Well then, please have some salt on that wound since they just dropped no less (well, maybe a tiny bit less) than ten minutes of Hugo Maillard footage, in order to celebrate his newly acquired flatbar Ballon d'Or. Really, one great audiovisual gift which is bound to motivate you to either rush outside and brave late December weather, carving around the holidays, or binge (re-)watch all of the channel's older uploads for as long as the signal allows.

Magenta in L.A.

Magenta Skateboards and their classic "capsule" format picked the turn of fall as the most strategic moment to come back to inject some extra sunshine into your life via this new eight-minute edit of Los Angeles footage featuring Leo Valls, Jimmy Lannon, Jesse Narvaez, Ben Gore and friends; now if night footage happens to be your thing then no sweat to be spent as they've got you covered there too. Their website has this accompanying article featuring photos by Ben Gore and Wolfgang Brandt (who also appears in the video); everything was filmed by Marshall Nicholson with some contributions courtesy of Chris Thiessen (previously interviewed by LIVE here); and for more Jesse Narvaez and Ben Gore, make sure not to miss the new Loophole edit in collaboration with FTC, by Zach Chamberlinhere!

N'AQUA!

"N'AQUA" is the title of Felipe Oliveira's newest clip (you definitely have seen his name pop up before on LIVE - if not, feel free to revisit our interview with him about "WORLDXIT PART 3"); as of recently the author of an eponymous trap E.P. (which one can listen to here, via Black Media Skate), Felipe figured he would associate his music output with five minutes of skate footage of his own, and captured by the fantastic Fernando Denti (remember "DOPPELGANGER"?) and Guiherme Guimarães.

Murilo alert!

Murilo Romão, you might have bumped into him before, around an edition of MIMPI or two, or maybe one of Vladimir - let alone multiple times on LIVE, notably via his video productions with Flanantes, the Brazilian collective with a global message. Today, for Black Media Skate, he's back and delivering over six minutes of moves of his very own, starring in an edit mostly conducted by his homie Ben 10 - all H.D. and technical with switch and manuals aplenty, usually at spots that so far had forever been yearning to exist.

Casey Foley alert!

The newest addition to Magenta's steadily developing roster of professional athletes-with-a-plan is from Australia and, actually, no other than Casey Foley, very closely monitored on the www for a while now by everyone in-the-know. His model already hit most specialized shops worldwide, but it's exclusively in Adelaide that this pristine edit was shot in order to explain why. We're talking two minutes and thirty seconds of Sony VX-1000 as manipulated by Jimmy Barry then orchestrated by Léo Valls - whose work in and with Bordeaux, on a side note, just keeps on gaining more visibility.

Trio

"TRIO" is the latest surprise edit released by Strush Wheels (the Japan-based, quality urethane and audiovisual production provider LIVE has been focusing on for years). As per usual, one can count on Ryuichi Tanaka's handling of the direction, and on his longtime, signature style comprising meticulous editing and stellar soundtracks; on the sessions, he was assisted by Kyota Kamei and as far as the eventual product goes, we're talking representing three skateboarders all renowned for their pairing up of efficiency with fine taste: Issei KumataniShogo Zama (you can still watch his latest video part for Magentahere) and Shinya Nohara, for exactly as long as five minutes on the clock!

Louison Bobet Forever

The new video production courtesy of Louise Skateboards consists in no less than ten minutes of creative urban skate creative magic all assembled together via elbow grease and helium by Stéphane Feugas, high wire filmer extraordinaire who didn't fall asleep at the wheel of the editing either, as the final product is as meticulously crafted as the most suspect of devices. The devil went down to Bordeaux and Montpellier for the most part, Vincent Dallemagne technically wins the race but each and every of the numerous participants owns their individual merits. The general universe is as captivating as it is delirium tremens-inducing and should put a face on most faces or at the very least, get them out of the house!

Inferno Verde

"INFERNO VERDE" is one nifty twenty-minute Sony VX-1000 trip to Manaus, Brazil, essentially the pulsating metropolitan heart of the Amazon, round trip and all expenses paid by Costume, the local brand LIVE hasn't been without sharing some of the former productions from before, itself led by Adonis Perfeito and his intrinsic drive to represent. To the equally-on-point platform Black Media Skate, he recites:

"« Green hell, green paradise; this is the classic Amazon where the past is common and synonymous with gigantic snakes and magic fish... » once said Glauber Rocha in his short film 'AMAZONAS, AMAZONAS' (1966).

For five years, we've been conducting ethnological studies, digging deep searching Manaus' alleys and landscapes for the summits of this 'green hell'.

A region rooted into the very old world, entranced by its situation in between water aplenty and luxurious vegetation that cracks concrete and asphalt, where alligators, jaguars and sloths fight for civility. One odd mix of creation and creatures, natural life and artificial death."

For the average skater now, this notably translates under the form of original - and crazy - spots, duly exploited by a collective of efficient and creative individuals, including Felipe OliveiraCotinz, Luis Moschioni and many more remarkable stylers. Ah and the editing and soundtrack are top notch, too!

Uccsó

It is by the means of no less than a twenty-minute video that the Hungarian Rios Crew strikes again and through your screen with parts for nearly everyone, notably including Attila FehérMátyás Ricsi, Viktor Turcsik and so many more! As per usual (which their production history can attest, here), both skateboarding- and atmosphere-wise, we're talking flirting on equal terms with authenticity and Budapest street shenanigans - and that's as far as the spots and tricks are concerned, too! The filming and editing are once more incredible, still with the elusive B. Bence at the wheel, and the full soundtrack in the YouTube description.

All about lines!

This new conceptual edit by Marcelo Garcia and his friends just dropped via Brazilian platform Black Media Skate and is as fresh and revigorating as some good local açaï. The principle is simple and tackled to perfection, resulting in a five-minute video piece that might even inspire you to question your own surroundings under a new light, as though in order to find your own lines of fugacity.

If you can read Portuguese (either on your own or thanks to the www), an article exists here - by Fabio Luiz Pimentel - and an interview with Marcelo about his approach can be found here; all top notch stuff!
