“The best Berliner skate video since Panorama.” – Unfortunately, I can’t remember who said this to me, but I found this quote really fitting when, a week ago, Dan Schulz‘ independent full length “Oh Snap” premiered at the overcrowded Cassiopeia in Berlin.
A while back we premiered Paul Herrmann’s video “Welcome to Franki”, at the same time we introduced his video column for PLACE. These raw cuts are a part of that series and they provide you with a great behind the scenes look.
Featuring highlights by Philipp Oehmige, Justin Sommer, Timo Meiselbach, Kalle Wiehn and much more
We would like to introduce our new boy Paul Herrmann, for those of you that are not familiar with his work visit his Youtube channel. Starting next month Paul will have his own monthly video column on the PLACE website. But more importantly this weekend Paul is premiering his newest video project “Welcome to Franki” the premiere will take place this coming Saturday at Bonkers skate shop (September 3rd), the video will be shown between 20:00 and 23:00 PM. For those of you, that want to visit the premiere click here to go to the Facebook event. After the premiere at Bonkers, the people that missed the event can head back over to our website, because the video will have its online premiere right here over at place.tv
We proudly present the first part of Favorite Skateboard’s first full length called “Daggers”. Berlin’s Valentin Ott is one of those type of skateboarders that don’t use social media, that still own a dumbphone and rather stay away from the spotlight and therefore erroneously are very much underrated. A fact that might change for Valle with this full part!
Tomorrow it is finally time for the long-awaited (at least by us) launch of the Aus Berlin 2015 Yearbook. At the launch event, there will be an exhibition and a video premier just to spice things up just a tad bit more. So if you want to see what happened last year in Germany’s capital head over to Civilist tomorrow around 7:30PM so you can enjoy the book, the video, and the exhibition.
For those of you that want to know a bit more about the yearbook project, we did an interview with Thomas Busuttil who started the Yearbook project that you can check outhere.
Friday the first of April, it sounded like a joke to us but as it turned out it wasn’t. It was the actual premiere date of the new Radio Skateboards video “Late but Short”.
We had heard stories about the last time Radio premiered a video. People arriving in limousines, streets being blocked off and inappropriate behavior only appropriate for a Radio event. “Late but Short” delivered, the video featured the entire team, friends and guests some expected and some unexpected. The whole Berlin skate and party scene came out to SO36 to celebrate the video in a way that can not be described. We will save you the details and just show you what happened. Snapshot is forever.

Oder: 27 Stunden in Englands Haupstadt, bewaffnet mit zwei Einwegkameras in Erwartung des vielbesprochenen Supreme Videos “Cherry”.
London ist Horror. Die Straßen sind überfüllt mit zu vielen Menschen und in die falsche Richtung fahrenden Autos und mehr als einmal wären beinahe unsere beiden PLACE Redakteure von einem roten Doppeldeckerbus oder einem schwarzen Taxi “mitgenommen” worden. Look left, look right – darauf sollte man sich in den Straßen rund um Covent Garden gefälligst halten. Nach links und rechts wurde eh viel geschaut, denn es gab viel zu sehen: Jason Dill in weißer Jeans und Timberlands vor dem Prince Charles Cinema zum Beispiel. Dort stand er nach der Videopremiere von “Cherry” rauchend, während er sich der Anhängerschaft präsentierte – im Rumstehen stylisch sein muss man auch erstmal drauf haben. Kaum weniger ansehnlich zeigten sich Dylan Rieder, Alex Olson, William Strobeck, Earl Sweatshirt und Co., die extra für die Europapremiere nach London gekommen waren. Mit einer Packung Kirschen im Gepäck folgten Daniel Pannemann und Benni Markstein der Einladung in eine Londoner Nacht mit vielen Schlangen, Gin Tonics und einem besonderen Video.
