UPDATE: Take a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Primitive’s ‘Encore’

Primitive’s Encore was one of the best videos to be released last year. The brand is known for impeccable skating, and production value that is second to none. Good taste is something that repeatedly comes up in our circle of friends. P-Rod and crew certainly have it.

“Behind the Missions” is a five-part series that examines the process for filming for the video. Episode 1 focuses on a 10-day trip to Chengdu, China featuring Tiago Lemos, Carlos Ribeiro, Trent McClung, Jenn Soto, and Robert Neal. From Oliver Barton’s intellectual insights into architecture and Tiago’s insurmountable spirit, to the team’s recollections of what went into capturing the tricks; this series is clearly a must-watch Encore companion piece.

Check out the debut episode above. We’ll update as more are released.
