There’s a new project in the works from a notoriously hardgrafting, street slaying French Canadian crew made up of, amongst others, LNP, Louif Paradis, Will Lavigne and Nic Sauve. This is the teaser for Deja Vu, and it is awesome.
To give it its proper name, we should have titled this post Deja Vu – Prologue Part One – Precognition but then you probably would have no idea what this was and overlooked it to watch more cat porn. But toss in the names of some of the bad boys behind this project and all of a sudden we’ve got your attention – these French Canadians have been at the forefront of shaking up urban riding in recent times, and they’re now mid-way through the production schedule of a two-year project that’s gonna light the lights.
Throughout their second season of shooting they’ll be dropping regular hammer-filled webisodes before the release of the full movie in roughly a year’s time from now. We’re partners with the crew, so you can be sure we’ll feed you exclusive hammers direct to your eyeholes of this crew of heavy hitters.
Here’s how Will Lavigne explained the premise: “DejaVu is a snowboard movie project reuniting 8 friends who grew up riding together. Produced in 2006, Bandwagon has been the only movie featuring the 8 riders in a single project. Since then each and everyone of them took their own path into the snowboard industry, working and filming for various movies such as Videograss, Rome, Forum, Standard, etc… Six years later, the time has come to bring the crew back together and produce a full release that will leave a long lasting footprint. This is a collective project in which all the riders are deeply involved into the creative process, bringing to life their own vision of snowboarding.Everyone is driven more than ever to commit and bring their best performance yet.The goal isn’t just to bring snowboarding one step ahead, but doing it in a way that transpires the crew’s authenticity and dynamism.”
This is going to be le sickness.
