De Paris Year Book—the makers of the fantastic skate photo almanac—have released their full-length video project, “3.” The video is, much like their other efforts, proudly 100% skateboarding-by-skateboarders. Everything from the photographers to art directors to bike delivery dudes—even the people working on the soundtrack—are unabashed, pure skateboarding skateboarders and people who live skateboarding.
“3” is a sort of companion piece to De Paris’s larger annual book project. In fact, much of the footage in the full length is of photos featured in the annual editions. The video features three edits of major European cities (hence the title): Paris by Guillaume Périmony; Berlin by Mark Nickels; and London by Austin Bristow. Like the books, the video is high quality, artistic, and communicates a mood that sticks with you long after the video is over. After all, there’s a reason why three is the magic number.
De Paris Year Book’s “3” features parts from Michael Mackrodt, Harry Lintell, and Marca Barbier, and an extended and uncut Harry Lintell edit. “3” also includes skating by Remy Taveira, Kevin Rodrigues, Roman Gonzalez, Tom Knox, Jake Collins, Jarne Verbruggen, Didrik Galasso, Juan Saavedra, Denny Pham, Dennis Busenitz, Kyron Davis, and many more!
