In just one year this film was being produced and the first time we heard about the name “Encore” was only a few weeks ago. Good marketing, a lot of effort and the right timing combined with world-class skateboarding.
Encore features Paul Rodriguez, Tiago Lemos, Miles Silvas, JB Gillet, Bastien Salabanzi, Spencer Hamilton, Robert Neal, Marek Zaprazny, Devine Calloway, Carlos Ribeiro, Brian Peacock, Wade Desarmo, Franky Villani, Patrick Zentgraf, David Jakinda & more.
If you don’t like Franky Villani on Primitive you probably also don’t like pickles on your cheeseburger. Franky is exactly what P-Rod’s board brand needs and therefore they just sealed the deal and turned him pro. Another good video from the Primitive squad.
Russell Houghten seems to approach every one of his projects differently but always with a strong effort towards a powerful visual presentation.
Now, these edits deliver on the cinematic front but we are not sure if they please the other part of the skateboard spectrum, namely the fisheye, raw back alley kind of crowd. Is this even necessary? All good art discriminates so it is all up to the viewer. Watch and Judge.
Documentary film making meets the outstanding skating of the huge New Balance Numeric team. A special kind of tour clip through the beautiful country of Spain. Featuring: Antoine Asselin, Jack Curtin, Arto Saari, Axel Cruysberghs, Jordan Taylor, Jake Hayes, Tyler Surrey, Tom Knox, Franky Villani, Flo Mirtain, PJ Ladd, Marquise Henry, Tom Karagelov, Jordan Trahan, Levi Brown and Mark Baines.
Franky Villani is one of the newer Black Label picks he joins a long line of unquestionably great picks, From Dill, Gino to Grosso they often had the best rep the brand. Times have changed though, right now the Label is not at its best but there is always hope for a comeback.
