Magenta are one of the most exciting skate brands to come out of France in the past few years, with solid designs for both their decks and apparel range, as well as a unique style in photography and video.
Last April (2013) the Magenta team travelled to Perth, one of the most remote cities on earth, to link up with their Australian connect to produce a 10 minute short film by Josh Roberts. The film features Leo Valls, Jimmy Lannon and Koichiro Uehara, as well as Australian rider James Whineray, longtime friend Liu Puli and the Perth locals.
The film is shot in a mixture of VX-1000 and Super8 footage from Josh Roberts, James Whineray and Leo Valls, and also includes analog photography from Liu Puli, James Whineray, Garth Mariano and Josh Roberts, with illustrations by Soy Panday.
