Frederik Andersen AKA Fredwart is back with a vengeance. He has got that eye and that Scandi swagger when it comes to building an edit. Featuring probably the most Gangsta-ass Heitor Da Silva moment since he started skating for Palace Skateboards. That moment alone shows you that Fredwart wants you to have the feeling of what it is like to be with the crew. Just one of the homies, but these homies skate like in the big leagues. We asked Fred to tell us a bit about how this video came to be so either press play or put on your glasses and start reading below.

Film, Edit & Photography by Frederik Andersen.

Hi, readers of Place Magazine. My videos are a sort of homage to my friends. Nothing feels better than showing people around the world how much fun we are having fooling around on these street spots in Malmö & CPH.
Filming in the streets in 2020 was a bit different than ever before. I was kind of caught up at work while making a documentary on the side. I wasn’t really feeling the process when I went out filming at the beginning of this video. But as always at some point, I got inspired to put something new together. We began filming more especially me and my friend Noah Vester. Some days we spent just biking around the city not knowing what to skate, others days were more like missions.

Do you want to know something special about Fred? He cut off a small part of his finger Cleaning his bike chain. His friend saved it and gave it to him in a jar. Now it sits there in his home.

Ville Wester about his friends body part collection.


What inspires me the most during the editing is the moment when it comes down to selecting the music. I love when skate clips have all these different types of music that transport all these different emotions into your head. What I like is to be surprised by people’s music selection as well as surprising others with the music I choose to use. In this video for instance, I like going from a “Queen” track to some synthesizer sounds my friend mixed together. Those moments provide a lot of different vibes to the viewer. That way I feel that it reaches a wider audience, instead of only using music from The Smiths or something in that genre of music.

I like to think of my edits as small documentaries or music-videos so that everyone can enjoy them both skaters and muggles. I want to show people a nice vibe with my work. I get a much better feeling from watching a video with a bunch of friends fooling around in the streets having a ton of fun. Compared to watching some skate-part with only difficult stair tricks and tech ledge skating. That’s just not my experience.

Noah is losing his mind on the internet, It’s dope! Sending crazy Cat videos to everyone.

Ville Wester about Noah Vester.

Now a day, most of my friends have a lot of projects they are working on, whether it’s making music, doing art, or something entirely different, but at the end of the day, we all have skateboarding as a shared passion, it is our Part Time Lover.

This one is FUBU, Enjoy!

Sweden and Malmö in particular seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. This one has some HIGH-level skating mixed with the goods musically, reminiscent of Danijel Stankovic’ part in Neverwhere.

Featuring:

Axel Källmén, Eric Hedberg, Mateo Bergil, Alex “Plankton Andersson, David Lindahl, Moshe Beskow, Eliott Toiminen, Axel Berggren and Jonathan Sjöberg.

Jacob Hansson with a new edit from one of the most productive cities in Europe thanks to the Bryggeriet Skate School, the good Swedish architecture and all around the modern way of thinking over there.

This video is featuring:

Jacob himself to start with, Jesper Ferrari, Sondre Mortensen, Josef Norgren, Oscar Anderberg, David Ahlqvist, Eliott Toiminen, Oscar Säfström, Axel Källmén, Ask Filling, Alex Elfving, Simen Haegeland & Daniel Pedersen.

Freshly graduated from Bryggeriets Gymnasium, Frederik Andersen took his Panasonic HVX200 and his parents old Sony Hi8 and decided to get things going in the streets and CPH is the best playground for that. Watch “Pirouette” and look into the future.

Feat.: Peter Deigaard, Asger Thomsen, Eliott Toiminen, Noah Vester, Thomas Samuel, Oliver Knap, Axel Berggren, Julius Rohrberg, Max Rohrberg, Ville Wester & William Asmussen.

Aaaaand we are back with another update from the Scandinavian front!

Obviously, we have written many times about the amazing skill level of the people up north but Oscar Säfström’s ollie at Besos puts him in a league with the OG Reese Forbes!

Pop like that is not learned you are born with it and Oscar is making himself stand out by using it. Enjoy the video.

There seems to be an endless stream of content coming from the shores of Malmö city, from last weeks Malmoe Tape, to the Polar camp and now a project supported by the city of Malmö itself (via the craftsmanship of David Linberg).

If 2020 will not be dominated by Sweden than we predict certain Swedish people will be switching citizenship just so they can compete in the 2024 Olympics. The talent pool seems almost as endless as the content pool.

And we are not seeing the same people, this video features a different group than for instance Jacob Hansson’s project. Showing in a way that a city of 687.481 people can compete with almost any European country as far as the talent to output ratio.

Anyway, great work by Mr. Lindberg and we would like to give a major shout out to John Dahlquist for testing the age limits on gnarlyness.

I once asked Bryggeriet teacher and main figure on the trigger John Dalqvist what his kids get fed during those lunch breaks because almost every single one of the kids can really skate. And all he could say was:

“I try to calm them down and tell them to chill during the summer vacation but the just won’t listen!

And to be honest we are glad that they neglected John’s good advice, Jacob Hansson saw a gap in the coverage of the Malmö scene and he jumped into that position and did what we all should do, document what we feel is good skating!
We asked Jacob to introduce himself and his video, so, here it goes!

Intro by Roland Hoogwater
video & main text Jacob Hansson

I’m 22 year old filmer, I born and raised in Uppsala. I moved to Malmö roughly one year ago to study Visual Communication at the University of Malmö. The program incorporates photography, film and illustration.

When I moved to Malmö my friend Oscar Göthlund asked me to help him and his friends film for a project for Skate Malmö. During that period of time I met a lot of locals in Malmö that became my friends. After the project was done I decided that I wanted to make an independent video with the skaters I was hanging out with from the Bryggeriets Gymnasium.

My goal for this edit was to give the young and upcoming generation a new plattform, one to get them recognized and secondly, to give them something to work for. I feel there’s a lot of skaters in this project that don’t get recognized. Some of them never had the opportunity to film street because there are simply not enough filmers in Malmö. Other than that we made this clip just for the love of skating and filming 😉

A fun little backstory about the clip when Magnus Boen first treyflips a nine stair and then does a 360 inward heelflip down another nine stair.

Magnus told me of this line that had been in his mind for a long time. During the time I was visting my parents in Uppsala and Magnus was graduating that week in Malmö. Magnus planned to move back to Norway the day after the graduation, so, time was very limited and I thought we wouldn’t be able to film the line. But he wanted to get the line more than anything and I couldn’t resist to book a ticket to Malmö one day earlier then planned just to get the line. When I arrived to Malmö that evening Magnus showed up to the spot and started trying it immediately. He managed to get the line but tried at least for another two hours to get a cleaner one. He was sore at his graduation but was still stoked to get the line. But I think Magnus knows who to call if he ever finds himself in Malmö and wants another round on that spot.
