Absolutely loved this, from Brazil (my favorite clip is at 2:14):

Some great stuff mixed with a little overkill. Who is the skater?

Well the names are in the video but according to https://blackmediaskate.com/secoes/fullvideos/linhas-de-fuga/ and if my understanding of Portuguese is good enough, this is presented as 'a personal project by Marcelo Garcia and friends'. I just realized there was a full article on that page, too, by Fábio Luiz Pimentel.

Marcelo is also interviewed about the project here: https://blackmediaskate.com/secoes/entrevistas/marcelo-garcia-e-as-linhas-de-fuga/ although I haven't gotten around to reading that yet.

Personally I find it poetic that there is what some would refer to as 'overkill'. It's only overkill if one is focused on a fictional kill count. Yes the concept could be pushed even further, but should it be? Not so sure. I liked seeing the differences in approach and as a whole the video completely worked on me.

Cthulhu!

That was getting philosophical, I liked that article. I especially liked the "non" spot with the Uakti/Philip Glass track. It kind of made it seem like he was playing. Going to bookmark this part.
