Ben Gore

Hot line(s)

We were already bringing up Josh Stewart earlier today, as the independent filmmaker from Florida was recently invited to the Croatian Vladimir Film Festival, for its 2019 iteration which actually just came to an end and LIVE already has covered, here (quite the must-see for any respectable fan of the "STATIC" video series).

Well, now the unstoppable work pace of the man is made obvious again as, in between trips and exhibitions, he just happens to be the author of this new montage for Dial Tone (the wheel brand for those who miss the original telephones). If you aren't familiar, then just look at that line-up: you're in for new, excellent footage of - amongst others - Jahmal Williams, Ben Gore, Kevin Liedtke, Alexis Sablone, Christian Maalouf, Brian Powderly and Jordan Trahan; and it all rolls beautifully, as though captured on everyone's oh-so-impertinent daily routine.

The animations are by Cosme Studio.

Still cold?

Static State

Ben Gore recently demonstrated that he was as skilled behind a video camera as he is behind a photographic lens; now here he is again, eager to remind us all of how much he's also the boss on the other side of the lens! The proof is in the footage, in this clip in which he shares the timeline with Christian Maalouf, Kevin Coakley, Brian Powerdly and Jon N'Guyen, celebrating the release of a new collaboration line between State Footwear and Theories, Josh Stewart's labor of love. Actually, it's also Josh who's responsible for the VX and editing here, being again as proficient as he is prolific and guess what: nobody's going to complain about that!

No pun intended

"HI8US" is the new video confession from S.F. hills' very own Papa Smurf: Ben Gore, pro chez Magenta, world renowned for his power and flick just as much as for his sharp eye, whether behind some kind of photographic lens or not. "A video about a tripod", or so he claims; a deceptively humble description as the edit is stuffed to the brim with genius skateboarding (and the occasional stunt) authored by Brian Delatorre, Ryan Barlow, Roger Krebs, Chris Athans, Trevor Thompson, Brian Powderly, Ben himself and then a handful of more, even. All in the name of his project: Three Press, and conveying some serious Dan Wolfe vibes, but transposed to the current S.F. scene.

Magenta "Balade" / Meeting... Vivien Feil!

Finally on your screens, for you to watch no sooner than right now, right here: the new Magenta full-length, "Balade", prominently filmed in the United States of America but not exclusively. The resulting mix is a twenty-minute long upbeat edit - perfect to watch before skating - that was put together pretty spontaneously, actually. You know how LIVE works by now: the opportunity was too great not to try and ask the busy Vivien Feil (one of the founding fathers of the brand, besides offspring duties of a more organic type) what's up and surprise, he did manage to find the time to come through with answers aplenty for you to absorb alongside the video, making for a solid package we are stoked to present you today!

Buttery mixtape!

At Butter Goods, they do things proper, we know it, and if you had that this edit is a sort of Best-Of remixed by Josh Roberts, we already real street lines will be queen, and us viewers fulfilled!

S.F. State!

The Internets and the current weather in France are currently on the same boat, fashion-wise: it's raining gems of clips bound to make you want to skate! And this one strikes like sunshine: State (the skater-owned shoe company on the rise) just dropped a shared montage featuring Northern Co.'s youngest Chris Athans and Brian Powderly zooming through and past the streets of a boiling, abrasive S.F. landscape of dreams as captured by one of the best to ever do it: Zach Chamberlin. Ben Gore even steals the show with an improbable guest trick!

Like butter!

Kiwis meet roastbeefs would be the least politically (and technically, even) correct possible, but oh-so-(anti-)gastronomic alternative title for this new amazing web clip from our Australian friends over at Buttergoods, who recently had a lot on their plate as they went to the UK and all they came back with was this not-lousy-whatsoever "Spoons": an impeccable edit of raw street skating bound to deliver enough weight to quench even the worst brick craving. Even the locals get to shine, the VX work is masterful and the editing flows super well, interestingly reminiscinent of another brand from Australia, the renowned Pass-Port. I guess you guys just might have good taste in general down under!

Trippin'…

The endless journey of the good friends of Push Periodical made a stop recently in Paris, before heading towards Athens… You guessed that the crew did not waste too much time on famous spots, and did explore the back alleys and even the underbelly of both cities… And this is where Masaki Ui steals the show when it comes to "underground" spots!

Better late than never…

Because, well, yes, that new Yoan Taillandier edit is made of footage filmed in San Francisco five years ago, but the great thing about skateboarding, just like for wine, is that it ages well, and even often really well. Well, unless you are on team managing duties… One will notably note what could almost make a full part of James Coleman and his signature powerful yet flowing style.

A little who's who of the Theories camp, where personal favorite Brett Weinstein holds it down the way he knows how!

Static power

Ben Gore’s part from Josh Stewart's notorious « Static IV » 2014 full-length (double!) epic just went live! Filmed between San Francisco and New York City by Josh Stewart, Ryan Garshell and Zach Chamberlin. Two minutes of beautiful images captured on sixteen millimeter film and mini-DV tape, speed aplenty, clean maneuvers: everything one needs in order to feel like asking for some more!

Allo!?

A new wheels company? Sure, why not…  With that line-up, well, hell, yeah, count us in! That first edit got it all right, so it's looking good for Dial Tone!
