Pintodd crew

You may have noticed them in the app: The Pintodd crew is one of the most famous crew and keeps exciting us with their vids and pics. Based in Lyon (France) often rippin’ HDV (understand here« Hotel de Ville » iconic spot) they are hungry enough to krak the world.

“Yo les chicken dips! Can you explain the name of your crew.

Felix : so we were just some friends hangin out together some times to hit the streets. During one of these sesh, we just tripped on the word “pintade” that means “guinea fowl” in french. The following evening, I proposed them to create a team, a crew, and we choose the name “Pintodd” cause it sounds like “pintade”, but is a bit different. The double ‘d’ at the end is much better, it sounds better. So in fact, we are the ‘GuineaFowl Crew‘ haha!

“Who are you, where did you met?

Enzo : first, we are French, we are ‘lyonnais’ (from Lyon). We’re skateboarders who just skate and laugh out loud. We all met in HdV (hotel de ville) and progressively we’ve been skating together.

“Do you have a motto? Something core to Pintodd crew?

‘Fuck da police!’ haha

Who’s the most funny in the crew?

Tibo: I guess the most funny is Harry, cause he’s always doing shit, talking shit.

(translation “My new GoPro”)

– The most talented?

David: ME
Harry: No it’s me!
Aurelien: Shut up guyz, you all know I am the best! Haha
Enzo: There is no real comparison between us, and that’s true: we all know the best is Aurelien. He progresses so fast that’s incredible.

– The most fucked-up?

Felix: Harry

-The chicks addict?

Haha make your own idea

tibo enzo

“Any favorite spot in Lyon (after HDV of course)?

David: We often skate in X-Rousse or in Confluence.

“Any annecdote about a skate sesh?

Aurelien: We have always funny bails but we remember this sesh in a lil park in Lyon (Blandan): skate friends and sun was the perfect combo, we don’t need anything else!

(translation: “Max doesn’t like cheap lemonade”)

“Do you have sponsors?

Tibo: except Aurélien, none of us have sponsors, but some are doing the best to search one. Video coming soon 😉

“Where can we find ya?

KRAK OF COURSE and also in HdV ! Enjoy your day, go hit the streets and FUCK DA POLICE!

Interview, Kraken

Inspiration: Hugo B.

Tell us about yourself. About Treepod.

Hugo Bernatas, I’m 23 and I’m studying filmmaking in Lyon. I create on my own many and varied video projects (music clips, skateboarding videos, institutionnal movies, live,…). Tree Prod is a collective which permits to join together artists, but most of all, friends, in order to help each others and work on a common project.

How did you start filming/editing videos?

I started filming when I had my first DV camera. I started by filming my friends skateboarding. The year after that, I made some video clips to tell about each day of the festival “Rockomotives”. This is really when I started working for myself, and began to developp new projects.

Who inspired you the most?

My inspiration for skatebording videos is Jason Hernandez, the director of the Nike SB’s videos. But I’m also inspired by a lot of artists on Vimeo. They really make the best videos! And sometimes, simply walking down the street can inspire me…

Any funny behind-the-scenes story?

Not really! But I can’t count all the skateboards which ended on my camera lens…

What has been your favorite thing about using Krak?

It’s great to find some spots, and it’s really helpfull when I’m looking for a new place to film which isn’t ten miles away!

Any useful shooting tips for our Homies?

Try to find original angles but more important, enjoy yourself

What are you up to (your projects or wish)?

This month, I’m going to make a video part for Arkaïc Skateboard, and in January, I’ll probably realize a music video in London, but I can’t say more for now !

Thanks Hugo, best of luck in your projects and keep pushin’
