Victor Campillo

Five on five

Very well placed in the list of Parisian collectives to follow closely, here is the Cinquième Terrasse back with a new video entitled "SINK", filmed by Elliot Bonnabel. In this new opus, they obviously continue to find new ways to use the streets of our beautiful capital. When the spot is huge, they are not shy and when it lacks scale, the originality of their skateboarding complements it perfectly.

"NANTESLAJOLIE" / HY Skatebag / PREMIERE

The mighty fine, youthful roster of HY Skatebag, the French brand LIVE has already been featuring quite a few times upon the respective releases of video productions such as "PAR-HY" or "PLUS BELLE LA HY" (we even interviewed one of its C.E.O.'s, Paul Austinhere), is back on your screens y'all, and once again thanks to the filmmaking talents of Julien Dellion who just so happens to live in Nantes, France - and that's exactly where the whole plot takes place this time, for the entire duration of the seven minutes this new edit runs for.

Answered the call of the board, in addition to Paul himself: Alex Richard, P.J. ChapuisVictor CampilloFlorian MertenMatisse BancVictor Cascarigny and Fred Plocque-Santos aka. Yeah Le Yeah... But not just 'em:

"The original idea was to go and skate a city that's notoriously under the mainstream radar.

Julien Dellion lives in Nantes, so picking the destination was easy! And we even managed to get a Thibaud Fradin clip!" - Paul Austin

Sunk costs

"NOT WASTED" is Thomas Larive's newest montage - you might remember his name as the one of the editor of "LOCAL", the Zeropolis Skateshop video, or maybe from his output for Quotamine. On the menu today: ten minutes of footage collected in between Lille, Paris, Montpellier, Barcelona, Toulouse and Brussels, featuring many a representative of each scene as just as many toppings on quite the hefty meal. Most of them rarely documented, too, including a certain Ibu Sanyang and his style coupled with good taste when it comes to spot selection, but really the credits roll by to quite the generous pace, resulting in variety. All on the basis of leftovers from different projects, or previously unused clips - besides some mandatory Instagram premature unloadings, long after the expiration of their fifteen seconds of fame. Gourmet crumbs right there!

PREMIERE / Film Trucks "Colorway" / Thomas Guérin / INTERVIEW

Just a couple of months after the release of "Nouvelle Vague", fifteen minutes of video collected and assembled by Guillaume Colucci for ex-Cliché Skateboards founder (the whole story hereJérémie Daclin's brand: Film Trucks, today, said firm is dropping "Colorway": a montage by Thomas Guérin. The most hardcore (or Grenoble-based) of our readership might remember his name, as LIVE has put it out before via his audiovisual contributions to the reports of last summer's Thursday Sessions.

As its title rightfully suggests, "Colorway" is also announcing the release of three new colorways of Film trucks on the market, each of them attributed to a French up-and-comer: namely, it's Arno WagnerFred Plocque-Santos and Victor Campillo who happen to be on the receiving end of that skate Power Rangers treatment. And right now, as telephone switchboards all over the world are imploding from the mass reaction to these news and the most in-the-know skateshops are already reporting being low on stock, LIVE is keeping you distracted from the chaos via this interview with the aforementioned Thomas Guérin: the man behind this new edit, who turned out to be more than ready to recount his recent rise to absolute success - with a symphony of metal grinding and bushings squeaking punctuating his words to the beat of his hands rubbing together in satisfaction.

"Lhyon"

We knew it already, the dudes at Hy don't lose no time emptying their pockets on every spot, and thanks to that optimal compartmentalizing allows them to maximize their skate time! So, give them a few days in Lyon to try out all the new spots that have seemed to be popping up there lately, and test out their collab with Volcom, and you know the result is going to be dope… No one will be able to say Matisse Banc did not give his all, and we will ask the question that keeps us awake at night: who is finally going to print a poster of Victor Campillo that we could have hanging over our bed!?

New Wave Film

We were bringing up Film Trucks as recently as not long ago at all - in Jérémie Daclin's Bigger Spin article, a recap of his legacy as the Lyon skateboarder who put Europe on the map of worldwide skateboarding for good in the late nineties, pretty much. Nowadays, Jérémie is still going at it, keeping himself busy without missing a beat after the disappearance of Cliché Skateboards with what claims to be the first ever truck company from the old continent.

Impeccable synchronicity as today, "Nouvelle Vague", a fifteen-minute montage made for Film Trucks by Guillaume Colucci just hit the sextuple V - a format one could argue makes for a modern equivalent of the ancient one of the full-length company video, as to better match nowadays's average attention span. But let's not disgress.

The editing works, and the imprint of Jérémie's visionary direction is strongly recognizable as the one also responsible for laying out the first blueprints for Cliché two decades ago. Out of the same ballpoint pen, the recipe is all laid out: charismatic B-roll intertwined with raw street prowess, VX-1000 cameras or anything remotely close to one, singular moments caught on tape and a homie vibe dipped in French sauce - title and double entendres included, as far as in the soundtrack. Because Jérémie believes in identity; Jérémie believes in skating as something personal, inspired and transcending the superficial aspects of its mainstream representation.

Generally a piece that's very reminiscent of "Bon Appétit" and French Fred's videos, a sweet surprise, and one that involves Jarne Verbruggen, Léo Valls, Anton Myhrvold, Adrien Coillard, Bastien Regeste, Bastien Marlin, Arno Wagner, Fred Plocq-Santos, Jérémie Daclin, Victor Campillo and Enzo Morel.

Last but not least, if ever around Venice Lyon on the 14th and 15th of September, please do not hesitate to join them guys on a tour of the local sidewalks of the most noble-or-at-least-decent kind - more info on the flyer below, drawn by none other than Mark Gonzales - évidemment.

Haze Wheels alert!

"Victor Campillo Pro d'Haze" as a title should be explicit enough universally, despite originating as an arguably questionable French pun. Anyway, yes, Victor did just turn pro for Haze WheelsBertrand Soubrier's company (read more about Bertrand in his Bigger Spin, here), as one should know by now. Expect two minutes and a half of inspired, classic street skating on some nice spots being put to great use, and some mind-boggling ledge lines at République!

UNEMPLOYED / "Trial Period" / GALLERY

Our favorite self-proclaimed Unemployed people actually run a griptape company from Marseille, France, and just put out a new edit: "TRIAL PERIOD", as though to showcase a willpower to make their own designation lie. They are indeed super productive, with still plenty in the works; as far as recent productions, one might remember "AVANCE L'ARRIERE". This new edit is about fifteen minutes long yet will leave you wanting for more, as the (trip) footage will cocoon you in a world of perfect spots of all kinds like the South of France altogether has to offer: Marseille, Lyon and the general region, although they did go to Paris for some tech prowess.

Among the featured skaters are Victor CampilloNassim LachhabMatisse Banc and many more; watch the video on this page, and take a gander at the photo gallery above that Brian Bunting was kind enough to contribute, just so we could present it to you.

Campillo alert!

Must be two years now that we have been keeping a steady eye on young South of France loc, Victor Campillo. Tech without falling into the juggling side of it, powerful in full finesse, he is the real deal! And he fully demonstrates it, here, with this part for Quota… Turn your very own eyes to him, and tell us what you think!

"Plus Belle La HY" / PREMIERE

If you regularly read LIVE Skateboard Media or just follow the French underground skate scene in general, then you should be familiar with the entity or at least the name HY Skate BagLIVE even interviewed Paul Austin about the brand and its previous video offering "Par HY", a few months back. "Plus Belle La HY" is - you guessed it - the title of their newest one, featuring Constantin Delmas, Fred Plocque-Santos, Pierre Leze, Pako Pion, Matt Débauché, Antoine Roussel, Léo Cholet, Florian Merten, PJ Chapuis, Victor Cascarigny, Matisse Banc, Nassim Lachab, Ben Raitano, Victor Campillo, Leezola and Paul himself (small roster...), hereby documented on a week-long skate holiday to Marseille. And just as it sounds like we could all use this type of sun ray sometime, the aforementioned Paul Himself decide to contribute to the warmth by chiming in!

“qu’est ce que vous faites c’est bien!”

The team haze Wheels had already shown us how demolishing the spots in Milan was easy for them, and here they are back in France. In short a little more than Victor Campillo, or Morgan Katomba, who this time play at home. Add two three pirouettes of Ruben Spelta and we get a video of the most friendly.

The backhand

While they had recently shined in the Pure Bag Juice video, Victor Campillo and Tony Rafanomezana hit us a second time with a part for BMG. At least now we are sure that they both have an incredible technique on all the tables, and we can note the balance of Victor Campillo which chaines always more and more complex manual combos. In short a youth who first put a big slap, then a very violent backhand.
