A Place in the Sun
from New Balance Numeric
For the first New Balance numeric video the team focused on the home of cinema and celebrity, Los Angeles, California.
They searched the spaces between the glamour, the fortune and the broken promises. They found that beneath its dazzling surface L.A. is as real and raw as any major metropolis on earth. Skate spots abound in the side-streets and empty school yards of this glitzy place in the sun.

Charley Ford Forever
from Kevin Strick
“Charley Ford Forever” is a passion project from cinematographer Nate Klein and video editor Kevin Strick. For those not close to the skateboarding community, Charley Ford, aka CJ, was a skater from South Central LA that was the unfortunate victim of a homicide on October 21st, 2012. CJ was on his way to making a name for himself within the skateboarding industry, having racked up a healthy list of sponsors, a ‘Mag Minute’ spotlight on The Skateboard Mag’s website, and filming with established videographers such as Nigel Alexander. Charley had an energy, charisma, and raw talent to him that magnetized people who, in turn, wanted to be around him and see him ‘make it’ in skateboarding.
Skateboarding film-maker and photographer, Fred Mortagne, alias French Fred, set out to capture this urban sport with the new Leica SL. Shooting on location at the industrial canals and concrete bed of the Los Angeles River he staged the Element skateboard team with Nick Garcia, Nassim Guammaz, Alex Lawton, Dominick Walkera and Brandon Westgate.
Undoubtedly one of the brightest talents in European skateboarding today, Maxime Géronzi is rapidly making a name for himself amongst skateboarding’s elite. After starting the year with a nasty ankle tweak whilst filming in Barca, Maxime has spent recent months on the steady road to recovery.
from Desillusion Magazine
This is life and these are the elements we play with. Inspired by the simple, hard reality of nature, one of waves crashing on the cliffs. An analogy of our immeasurable desire to master the uncontrollable, the ordinary violence that keeps us balanced on the thread of life.
