  1. 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. So, let's just say "Thanks, Murilo!"  And ask him what he really means by "working on trains… "
  2. Zonzo

    In addition to the always outstandingly creative, insanely rugged, against-all-odds excellent street skateboarding from the cream of the crop of Brazilian skateboarding, what we appreciate in Murilo Romão's frequent productions (the former ones we've introduced to you before, here) is his will, as a true filmmaker, to push the envelope of the medium of the skate video, and the spectrum of its language.

    His works along with his collective Flanantes transcends the documentation of hard-hitting urban stunts (amongst other various reinterpretations of apparently quite hostile settings), by always placing it at the core of a given, coherent context.

    This time, it is the body of work of Italian architect Francesco Careri that caught his attention for long enough that he articulated his whole new full-length film around an idea that we'll let him go in depth about, below:

    "Francesco Careri, dans son ouvrage classique 'Walkscapes : la marche comme pratique esthétique', détaille les avantages de la marche, de l'exploration et d'à quel point il peut être bénéfique pour l'humain de s'égarer car, parmi les cultures dites primitives, les sédentaires qui ne se perdaient jamais ne progressaient jamais autant que les peuples nomades. Vers la fin du livre, il détaille la ville de Zonzo, une métropole imaginaire et métaphorique qui serait une ville dans la ville ; à mon esprit, c'est très proche des skateurs, à la perpétuelle recherche de Zonzo dans leurs déplacements imprévisibles. "Zonzo", cette nouvelle vidéo Flanantes, est infusée de cette pulsion d'explorer de nouvelles zones de la ville, ou de sa périphérie ; des zones abandonnées, des lieux en transformation spatiale comme temporelle et finalement, on se rend compte qu'en pratique, qui perd en temps gagne en espace." - Murilo Romão

  3. 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.

  4. 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!
  5. 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!

  6. Dúvidas

    "Dúvidas" is a new full-length video from Brazil (we keep telling you how boiling hot the scene is there...), by Guarulhos, São Paulo-based Cleverson Maniglia - notably a friend of Murilo Romão's, whose incessant, quality Flanantes productions (of a certain introspective kind) LIVE regularly features.

    The video serves as the first audiovisual output of Cleverson's brand Tupode (that mostly produces garment, but also the occasional, exceptional one-off such as "50-50 Grind", the skateboarder's perfume - unfortunately out of stock). The film features parts for, and footage of Leonardo Fagundes, Marcos Augusto, Lucas Cicolo, Lucas Antônio, Diego Ramos, Diogo Ramos, Cleverson Maniglia himself and many more local heads, going hard on some regional spots those of you familiar with the Flanantes videos might recognize, and then a bunch more of others, all quirkier and rougher than one another.

    The whole deal wasn't without sparking our curiosity, which Cleverson was patient enough to address, below...

  7. 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!

  8. 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…

  9. 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!
  10. Situation

    Where our friend Murilo manages to get the permit to skate for three days only Praça Victor Civita, a privately owned space completely forbidden to any four wheelers, despite inviting shapes and forms… The whole thing also seem like a trap, but with the cream of Brazilian street skaters, they manage to make the best of their (short) time there!
