Öctagon – The Trailer
“The Öctagon is totalitarian and omniscient. Billions of data are generated by this independent system and build a unique reality. Individuals live within the Öctagon. Geographic space doesn’t exist for real, it is not tangible but still defined by a multitude of data.”
Öctagon is an independent skateboarding video project conducted by three friends: Joaquim Bayle in charge of filming, Nicolas Decatoire, designing all the graphics and the visual identity and Clément Vanpeperstraete dealing with the production.
This video project sets a visual universe in black and white and a graphical landscape fed with technologic and futuristic references. It relates themes such as new technologies, human subjugation, freedom and rebellion.
Carhartt WIP teamriders Bram De Cleen (BE) and Joseph Biais (FR) are featured in the video as well as Valentin Bauer (FR) and Edouard Depaz (FR). Several screenings are scheduled in Berlin, Paris, Lille and Gent together with a photo installation by Maxime Verret and a DJ set by ClekClekBoom related to the video soundtrack.
