Some Different Videos I Released

So in this one I just wanted to bring some attention to 3 videos I made recently in 2016. All very unique and all featuring one of the biggest things in my life; Freestyle Football.

1.      "Fussballspieler"

For this video I took the song "Opernsänger" by Yung Hurn. It's a very random song in which he's rapping about David Alaba (The Bayern Munich Left Back) and how he is going to become a football-player if his girlfriend wants him to do so because he loves her so much. It's pretty funny in German trust me. :-)

With my good friend Anshu we went to a street court nearby Warschauer Straße in Berlin to film this. With this video it was pretty chilled and we managed to get it all shot in a day. The clips I mainly wanted to be ones that would look good in slow motion, and I also met two kids there while filming who wanted to be in it so we did the "Dab" together haha.

   2.     "Summertime Vibe$$$"

For this video I actually got inspired by recently watching lots of skateboard videos and I just wanted to do something else a little different again to the majority of most freestyle videos these days. This is just about conveying having fun. There are no serious combos, just enjoying life and having a good care free session with my friend Anshu. Don't get me wrong there is still some tough stuff in here! But I wanted to shoot it in a much more natural way than a lot of freestyle videos that still shows all the positive vibes with no heavy editing. 

I decided to take a funny song which captures the mood perfectly and makes people smile, cos at the end of the day, we should all smile a lot more haha. Thanks again to Anshu's friend Pierre for filming this one!

     3.     "Noisy"

In this video I also wanted to do something completely different from what we freestylers are used to seeing. I guess you could say this one is a lot more 'edgy' and 'artsy' but I'm really happy with the end product which took me a few days to edit because of all the details such as editing to the music, applying film grain/film burns etc.

This was filmed on a cold day in Berlin Friedrichshain & Kreuzberg by Anshu once again. This out of the 3 videos is probably my most favourite because of how different it is. I remember staying up late spending a lot of time paying attention to detail on it and I'm happy with the freestyle content in there as well as the other quirky additions like including photographic stills, I think this looks sick!

So if you watch any of the videos I'd love to know your thoughts on them, good or bad, and don't forget to subscribe for future vids on my YouTube-Channel as well.

Thanks for reading once again,

Peace!

Karstadt Sports Rooftop Event

One of my favourite events that I mentioned in a previous blog post was the time I performed for Karstadt Sports at their rooftop event in Berlin, well lucky me I was back doing the same thing again, this time in the wonderful city of Hamburg!

The tournament itself was a straight forward format where kids would play each other 2 v 2 in a small cage. The ball is always in play and therefore you have to be constantly alert, think quick and have fast feet in such a small enclosed space!

In the video clip above you can watch me doing a freestyle combo in front of the cage in which the kids played in. I was pretty happy to pull of this combination! :)

Once again, the event was all Adidas, I was repping some of their latest gear as were the kids taking part in the tournament, the winner also got a load of free Adidas gear which looked awesome.

I thought it was pretty cool how this event had the professional DJ " Shorty Banks " for the day as well as a professional photographer, you can see some of his shots of me down below and his site for more of his work at: PhillipBischoff.Com

For me it was another case of not only showcasing my freestyle skills but also giving workshops to the kids and being able to teach them a thing or two as well. I even managed to join in and play a couple games myself, that was great fun and a refreshing change from purely just performing my freestyle at events.

Still nice to be asked for photos and my social media by kids, it lets me know that they rate what I do! :)

Once again the event was a huge success and I want to thank the team and everyone for having me for another rooftop event (which by the way makes for he coolest venue ever!). another massive thank as well for the professional pics by Hamburg's finest, Phillip Bischoff, a small gallery of my favourite shots from the day you can see below:
