In the spring of 2013, a crew of the magenta boys paid a visit to the local underground skate scene of Perth, Australia, one of the most remote city on earth. Jimmy Lannon, Koichiro Uehara & Leo Valls were sent to establish further connection with the local filmer & VX expert Josh Roberts, who has been pushing Magenta in Australia for quite some time along with our good friend Garth Mariano, founder Buttergoods/Beyond/Lofi, our Australian rider James "the Croc" Whineray & the local Perth homies who paid us a visit in Bordeaux or that we befriended online. The result of 3 weeks of sharing the life of the Perth crew is a 10 minutes short film entitled Magenta Crossing the Perth Dimension mixing VX (Josh Roberts), Super 8 (Josh, James, Leo), photograpy (James, Liu Puli & the crew) & illustrations (Soy Panday & various) edited by Leo Valls & Josh, Directed by Leo Valls, Production & Art Direction by Vivien Feil.
James Whineray took to himself to make a great limited edition photo journal (only 200 available worldwide) using photos of Liu & himself as well as screengrabs and captions from the video.
Josh Roberts had been distributing Magenta with the help of Garth & Beyond Skateshop since 2011 but told me of his intention to focus more on his filming & video making activites early 2014. A little earlier Soy and I had met and befriended Ben Ventress of Project Distribution in California through our great UK friend Wes Morgan of Rocksolid Dist. Ben offered to take on our Australian distribution after Josh expressed his desire to move on. We are very thankfull to Josh & Garth and the good people at Beyond & Buttergoods for their tremendous help in pushing Magenta in Australia through Welcome Dist. and are happy to introduce Project Dist. as our new OZ distributor.
Buttergoods x Magenta collab OUT WORLDWIDE SOON. Stay tuned.
