The Manwho Souled The World

We've mentioned works from the Japanese crew Manwho before, although without ever really getting to give them a proper introduction; today, we're happily righting this wrong with their new montage - dedicated to Jupiter ("木星") - and quite violently so, too, as it's got to be one of our favorite edits that came out this year. We're talking six minutes of peak VX-1000 maneuvering around some very remarkable urban skating - all killer no filler - resulting in precious, pristine footage then set to an upbeat and surprisingly joyful soundtrack, making for quite the hypnotic motivational watch; one you'll probably find yourself going back to. And, while all of that sounds just like their classic recipe (given that they're already strong of several full-length DVD's, in between more creative productions, and also of quite the YouTube channel), even the most initiated fans are bound to be shocked by how much everyone is upping the ante here - all in front of Kazuya Yokoe's lens. This even includes Magenta Skateboards rider Shogo Zama, for even more clips after his very recent appearance in Kenta Okamoto's latest video: "PALE". Just beautiful!

Luck Of The Draw

In addition to managing LotteryLogan Matthews is a good friend of Zach Chamberlin's, which can be felt as far as in their common passion for the collection of efficient, impactful VX-1000 footage amidst a San Francisco notorious for its ups, but mostly for its downs - apparently, very much to the joy of the likes of Chris AthansBen Gore or Sean Greene, who love using this type of sloped terrain to their advantage...

All things considered, "LUCK OF THE DRAW" will definitely hit you with a taste of what a year twenty twenty version of "HILL STREET BLUES" could look like with its impeccable production, an author who's bound to instantly become one of your favorite filmers, and an overall inclination for good taste be it as far as spots, tricks, presentation and even the soundtrack are concerned, directly relying on the strengths of the most classic S.F. videos, refreshed with up-to-date actors and approaches!

For more on the personal activity of most of the stuntmen involved here, in this wheel of fortune falling downhill in the best possible way that's "LUCK OF THE DRAW", may LIVE send you back to Loophole - Zach, Ryan and Jesse Narvaez's company of urethane-hard and silk-soft goods, all screen-printed on location in the purest D.I.Y. tradition. Although, one might argue - who needs a push in a realm of hills, right?

Right?...
