Vladimir - for the obscure.

The black sheep has only been developing exponentially over its now nine years of existence, and so has been the attention it's received with, this year, an approximation of three hundred people showing up from the whole planet over to attend this local festival in Fažana, Croatia - a little Istrian port town with a loaded history, testimonies of which still stand under the form of monuments everywhere (currently ensuring a steady flow of tourism), and the sensibilities of the inhabitants.

What originally started out as a very local initiative consisting in video screenings at the local skatepark quickly outgrew that embryonic phase as its instigators, Nikola Racan (of 'Solsticij' full-length video underground fame) and the Skateboard klub August Šenoa locals grew to use modern communication tools to get further and further in touch with universally renowned skate artists and documentarists - whether in the photo or video field.

Joe Gavin alert!

A few days back, LIVE was forwarding to you Dom Henry's incredible new part in Sean Lomax's new indie full-length: "Cottonopolis". Well today, it already is local legend Joe Gavin's section's turn to undergo the exact same treatment, also happening to be the curtains in Sean's film that we'd really recommend you to order here if even remotely close to being aficionado of the classic VX-1000 meets inspired street skateboarding formula. Both sides of the lens are mastered, and the vibe is reminiscent of "First Broadcast", Dan Magee's - iconic - video for Blueprint back in 2001 which, coincidentally, just earned itself a new spiritual sequel: "Cover Version", by Magee again but under an obscure alias: Blips, that one can and really should watch in full, here.

Dom Henry alert!

Our fellows over at Free Skate Mag just uploaded one more section from Sean Lomax's latest full-length video: "Cottonopolis", and it just happens to be our beloved Dom Henry's part that incredibly enough, also has to be - arguably - his best (a commendable feat given the man's steady quality output, and that his footage was apparently collected in a relatively short timespan). Indeed, in "Cottonopolis" Dom can be witnessed skating faster and more aggressively than ever, all the while never breaking out of his trademark smooth flow and making ledge prowess look offensively easy (that switch backside nosegrind shove especially looks like it felt good to land). And of course as always with Dom, we are talking about endless lines infused with nineties plaza flavor, complete with a strong note of switch stance and such a natural tendency towards consistency and form many witnesses are bound to reach consequential peaks of self doubt. All hail Dom Alexander the Third!
