The man responsible for being behind the lens was MK’s long time partner Pirmin Juffinger whilst Tim Schiphorst from the european video production “Portland Theory” covered the urban side. On top of that rad lineup, we were really stoked to extend our collaboration with the french photographer Matt Georges.
"We started this project from scratch last year and it's been a truly great experience, seeing it unfold and grow with so many talented and motivated people involved is truly rewarding. Last season for this second volume, our two Japan trips were all about exploring new places, wandering around and sharing with locals. I'm thankful to Vans for supporting the whole #VANSFIRSTLAYER project and making things happen,”says Matt Georges, project videographer.
The final result from Matt Georges is a limited edition photo-book & Newspaper covering the trip.
The Firstlayer movie will be launching at the Vans store, Lyon on October 12th with a further screening at the Snowboard Garden festival, Grenoble on October 13th. Furthermore the video will be available to view on the Vans youtube channel from October 13th.
