Ryo Takahashi

Peace and love

From the Tokyo-based crew already behind (amongst some other madness) the twelve-minute video "PALE" (which you can still watch and rewatch, alongside an interview with filmmaker Kenta Okamotohere), just popped up a new piece: "PEACE AND LOVE" is a five-minute VX-2000 edit which, as usual, turns out to be excellent on all levels. It's also marking a new chance to see the graceful styles of Ryusei Sakurai, Ryo Takahashi or Naoya Kato, for instance - and also to witness quite the waterfall of crazy spots and improbable kickflips, meeting only to better serve the strengths of Kenta's experimental editing. Just as a due reminder: Kenta's YouTube channel can be explored here!

PREMIERE / "Pale" / Kenta Okamoto / INTERVIEW

Kenta Okamoto, from Tokyo: LIVE has had the pleasure of sharing his works before, and some great local videos they are, most often pairing up remarkable urban skating from underrepresented rippers with rather dreamy soundtracks, in a style only made even more particular by his fondness for the less popular Sony VX-2000, which he actually puts to stellar use. Today, LIVE is presenting "PALE": Kenta's brand new twelve-minute film, his most ambitious one to date and for the occasion, we got to ask him a few questions regarding the process and intent, as to complete the picture. An exchange you're welcome to read, available in both English, French and Japanese (again thanks to the gracious help of our good friend Connor Kammerer), just below!
