original copy

P.E.K.I.

"Peki" is the nickname of Antonio Peković that also happens to double up as the title of the newest - and ninth! - production from the Slovenian Original Copy, a collective of artists involving Tomaž Šantlwhose works (and skating!) LIVE Skateboard Media has quite extensively featured before. Because yes, the man is as dynamic on a skateboard as he is in terms of video output; some might remember him as the titular of the last part in Nikola Racan's video, "Solsticij". Well, Antonio is quite the ripper too, whose skating is loaded with pop over some rather unexpected objects, kickflips out of backside tailslides on raw concrete in torn socks, and more cobblestones than Eastern Europe altogether could always dream to be able to keep count of. The final product is as grey as cement, sounds like rusty grinds and as to be expected from Tomzi, is put together in quite the experimental fashion - one of the genuine types, that is, and set to original music by Zlatko Djogić.

Iran trippin'

Original Copy (or Copies?) is the name code of the ongoing project of Slovenian photographer, videographer and extraordinaire skateboarder Tomaž Šantl, who coincidentally just happens to have  a new website up. You may remember him from earning the last part in Nikola Racan's Euro full-length epic "Solsticij" or, from more eons ago, being the filmer of some local shop videos that notably helped bring the name (and demented style) of a certain Ali Jusovic under the spotlight.

Tomzi's new baby is an Original Copy production, as expected, and also an audiovisual recap of an expedition to Iran that doubled up as a skate trip. Everything up to the musical score is original. The resulting piece is a quite conceptual one, more subtly appreciated in a quiet environment as opposed to a rush. Don't hesitate to take a gander at Tomzi's works, and skating, if you ever get such a chance.
