Peace and love II

Kenta OkamotoLIVE interviewed him already around the time of the release of "PALE", and that wasn't the only time we've passed the man's edits around either. Now, still the same gifted cameraman amidst a crew of equally inventive and Japanese skaters, "PEACE AND LOVE V.2" turns out to be the direct spiritual sequel to the previous eponymous installment and consists in eighteen minutes of all new footage - them guys really are at it! As expected from Kenta by now, the filming and editing are stellar, the soundtrack exquisite and there might be one of the best flatground 360 flips ever filmed somewhere in there, too - amongst just as remarkable urban, mostly nocturnal, prowess.

And to keep in touch with Japan even better, may we recommend again the UGLY WEAPON videos, featuring a few heads in common - most especially, their latest piece of output for now: "SAMMY".

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!
