Watch “DEVOTED” – a Documentary Of Influential Skateboard Media Discussing the Future of Print
We’ve been covering Lucas Beaufort’s DEVOTED since he released its first trailer. He is a huge fan of skateboarding and especially skateboarding print media, so he did something about it and travelled around the world interviewing the people that made it all happen.
Here’s the details straight from Lucas:
“My name is Lucas Beaufort, I’m a 35 years old french artist obsessed with skateboarding.
I’ve always been a huge fan of print magazines, I collect every single piece since I was able to read.
Since March 2016, I’ve travelled the globe across Europe, US, Japan and Australia to meet the most influential skateboard media to get their opinion about the future of print.
“DEVOTED” is a tribute to people who spent their life documenting skateboarding.”
