There are few people who are able to make skateboarding look as cinematic as French Fred. Created with a photographer’s eye his films for Es’, Cliche and Flip have helped to set the bar for skate films. Once thrown from the top of a contest pyramid by Sean Sheffey he’s filmed some of the greats. He’s learned by watching some of the best videos of our past, Daniel H. Stuart, Mike Ternasky and the others of that era. Expanding on their example and techniques he uses the surrounding architecture and shadows to frame the skaters. His recent commercials for Cliche’ are examples of further progression at his craft.
