After bringing his skate film LENZ to the big screen back in 2009, director Shinpei Ueno knew there were many more skaters and settings he wanted to feature, but didn’t have the time or means. Now four years later, the cinematographer is set to premiere LENZ II with footage from Japan, New York and France, along with over 180 riders including Shota Kikuchi, Hiroki Muraoka and Issey Yumiba, in addition to international notables such as Leo Valls. The goal of this project was not to necessarily compete with American skaters and their gnarly talents, but rather to bring innovation to the visuals of skate cinematography. LENZ II will premiere this October with screenings in Osaka, Tokyo and Sendai.
