Filmmaker Youri Fernandez utilizes his lens to capture the art of skateboarding in this monochromatic portrait of four skaters, including Fernandez himself as they flex their skills throughout Berlin.
Produced with a metronomic track from electronic musician Petit Fantôme to reflect the aerial ambiance, the film is part of the HOW MANY BPM? project — a performance and installation series founded in 2014 where skateboarders become human metronomes as they ride back and forth on a ramp.
The project was founded at the Parisian gallery l’Hermitage by both Fernandez-co-founder of Berlin-based skateboard brand and art collective FLVR—and visual artist Iouri Camicas, who invite various musicians to create a sound universe to accompany each of the performances.
Also in case you missed it, Theobalds Cap Co. explores the world of skateboarding in ‘ATHLETICS.’
