"CLASSICO" / GALERIE

A couple of weeks back, LIVE was featuring "CLASSICO", the new video with its contents filtered through the eye and VX-1000 of Practice Session's Corentin Ohlmann, in between Paris and Marseille, in a style comparable to the one of "BROTHERHOOD" (the video by Corentin's friend Max Guyot, itself filmed in Nancy and Paris). Our most faithful readers should already know by now, but most every skateboarder involved in "CLASSICO" also happens to double up as a photographer (as their respective contributions to the No Contact Sheets project can attest) and today here they are, presenting you this gallery of clichés they shot whilst on the sessions, be the latter street- or beach-based. Amongst the contributors: Corentin himself but also George Booth-Cole, Max Guyot, Clément HarpillardMatias ElichabehereAlexis JametYedihael Canat and Antoine "Chuck" Jouguet - whose talents also comprise team management, it looks like, since he played a big role in gathering all those images, for you!

Classico

Corentin Ohlmann of Practice Session is a skateboarder (and one you might have caught in the act via Max Guyot's full-length indie piece, "BROTHERHOOD"), draws John Muscu (amongst other things), and likes to be discreet when it comes to his skills with a Sony VX-1000; well, at least he was before "CLASSICO", his newest skate edit to date, meticulously crafted, adorned with hand- and home-made titles and split in two parts: first a Paris section, then a Marseille segment. Solid filming, spots aplenty and a colorful roster (albeit slightly leaning towards a certain Magenta tint): what you get is seven minutes and a half of the real thing, more fun a workout than one of jumping jacks.

Stay tuned for the photo gallery soon, if the world doesn't collapse or something. In the meantime, you can check a variety of Corentin's former edits on his YouTube channel, here!

Giddy 11

Romain Batard, the French skate filmmaker LIVE really shouldn't have to introduce to you by now just on the basis of his longevity in the field, is back today with the eleventh chapter in his series-turned-saga "GIDDY" - and pretty clearly the most ambitious one that is, also including contributions from some equally prestigious video fiends, for a timeline just short of twenty minutes in total - but rest assured you won't catch a break!

On the menu: stunts from the usual suspects - Edouard DepazValentin BauerJoseph BiaisLilian FevMarc-A BarbierRemy Taveira - but also many others (including Max Palmer, Sylvain Tognelli, Mika Germond, Dustin Dollin... Quite the universal roster!), immortalized on Parisian spots aplenty - some classic ones and some more rare nugs, all approached with a sweet creative twist. Out of many examples, one of Soy's many fountains gets reinvented (and that's despite the mysterious disappearance of the corresponding Instagram account), but really it's the whole landscape of the French capital that gets dripped into new colors here, from the most famous plazas to the most unknown street corners possible (e.g.. le Dôme's three-flat-three, or the benches at République)... All in great fun as well, just bathing in the rhythm of the daily sessions.

Chic, chic, chic!

And as a complementary bonus, we are happy to share with y'all this photo gallery, by Max Verret!

PREMIERE / "Brotherhood" / Max Guyot / INTERVIEW

The last time LIVE presented one of Maxime Guyot's skate video works was back in 2016: he had then just published the second episode in his web series, "NCY Brotherhood". A "NCY" and not the most common "NYC" that stands for Nancy, France - the ancient capital of the Duchy of Lorraine, way prior to being the one of American fashion. Since then, Max hasn't been sleeping nor slipping and today, he's back with no less than a full-length video: "Brotherhood" (now a general concept) consists in exactly twenty minutes of urban skateboarding, coming in three slices: the first two are dedicated to the underrepresented Nancy locals and scene, and then the last one has a taste of Paris, foreign lands represented by quite the amount of Magenta heads. The eventual result is a little gem of an independent video, much in the vein of some of the best French classics of the genre and featuring rare styles, meticulous editing and intense VX-1000 swordsmanship. Which is obviously synonymous with many a question, so we logically caught up with Max himself for an interrogation he promptly gave in for, very much under the influence of our trust serums and various variations on the Stockholm syndrome.

8 ball!

We barely had time to recover from the seventh episode, that Romain Batard dazzles us with an eighth Giddy. And this time the cast that travels through the streets of Paris is even bigger than as usual. We even have the right to a little touch of romanticism that makes everything so harmonious. Add a rather serious featuring by Steve Malet!

Gimme five!

"Look, ma', no hand!" Oh wait, yes hand, yes hands actually, and yes feet too… All in good spirits too, as always, when we speak about  Romain Batard!

Where the Nozbone team and colleagues go to Charleroi's BPS22 museum in order to enjoy the last hours of the "Paving Space" exhibition of Raphaël Zarka's  work…

Charles' tip: "New York 1993"!

"Such a must see!" Or when the Rennes locals go on holidays in NYC… What do you think happened? A storm of hammers, that's what happened, with even an Ellington featuring! Nice find, Charles!

Giddy-oh!

Always a laugh, always different faces… Skating captured between Paris, Rennes, New York City and Barcelona that will make you ring your homies!

Giddy #3

So, if this new edit by Romain Batard does not make you want to buy a plane ticket to NYC in order to get silly in the streets with the homies over there, well, you might be a little dead inside… As usual, the mood is good, Hugo Maillard manages to take aback and Alexis Jamet goes beast mode! Just perfect.

Rebound

Beware: you're in for a laugh or two! Romain Batard is known to be able to convey the explosive side of skateboarding, as well as its hilarious side, the way it is all interlaced in real life. His new full-length is in direct lineage of his precedent pieces, only with a wider spectrum of skaters, due to his recent move to Paris. Rebound confirms also a recent philosophical theory pointing out the fact that in French street skating, Hugo Maillard always steals the show, as he appears to have way more fun than anyone else, while steady killing it. This is gold, Jerry, gold!

Duo

Alexis Jamet and Romain Bâtard, you have already seen them collaborate on LIVE mixing illustration, skating and filmmaking, and they are back at it, this time to illustrate friends' music, and have a good time. You will also enjoy it, we guarantee!
