Rodney Mullen, the pioneering godfather of modern street skateboarding, has just put the finishing touches on this first video part in over a decade. Mullen has reportedly spent the past two years working on “Liminal” with photographer Steven Sebring, whose credits include a promo spot for Bates Motel and a study of prima ballerina Alessandra Ferri for Vanity Fair. Sebring’s work often focuses on dynamic motion and the human pose, making him a perfect companion to Mullen’s freestyle flatland stylings. The video part was filmed in 4D using a 24-foot dome, wherein the subject is shot with 100 surrounding cameras from every imaginable angle. The four-minute part—Mullen’s first since 2004’s Almost: Round Three—will reportedly feature 540 fingerlips, pogo-flips, and a switch nollie laserflip. Not bad for a guy who removed scar tissue from his own leg in order to keep skating.
“Liminal” is set to drop on Vogue on July 11. Check the first teaser out above.
