So yeah, it’s been a hard winter this time in Germany… But we made it through! We are constantly working on new videos & clothing, so be excited for this year! This video contains Sessions with Eugen Enin, Sven Ischen, Jo Zenk & Alex Lytvyn! - Borklyn Zoo.
ODYSSEIA is a rollerblading skatevideo by Jo Zenk filmed in may 2021 Germany. Harry Can visited Jo Zenk for a while which set the base and framework of this project. They teamed up with Borklyn Zoo superheroes Eugen Enin and Sven Ischen to combine forces on this one.
10 days of skating left us with this 10 minute piece. “10 von 10” as Eugen is shouting few times within this piece prior to knowing his prophecy would become reality in this form.
They climbed Mount Olympus to destroy the gods. Little did they know what powers they’d set free. Prophecies are made before the crew begins their odyssey into the unknown. Not knowing that they would bring the fire back into the valley.
We’ve been pretty busy the last month, filming for Eugen Enin and Sven Ischen’s newest street profile. We also visited Powerslide in southern Germany and also combined it to visit Joao Goncalves in Leipzig, see the first 2 spots.
Riders: Eugen Enin, Joao Goncalves, Georg, Sven Ischen and Jo Zenk.
Note: ÜBERSTUNDEN means overtime in german.
Mnstr Blade III aka TRU SOUL aka lost tapes Finally, here it is… Filmed throughout 2016-2017, mainly edited 2018-2019, a lot of things got in the way: first our beloved 0.2x deathlense Fisheye unfortunately got humiliated in the process of filming as you can see in the video.. then I couldnt get it again and we continued shooting some stuff with broken fisheye (sorry for that). At some point after that my computer crashed and I lost access to the open file, when 70% was edited and rest loosely arranged. Lost all drive to do it all again until the Crew died around 2020/ beginning of 2021.
After a while I felt the need to wrap this one up as it portrays the final chapter of the crews skating and I was about to move away from Münster. I found a 70% edited version that got rendered for private youtube some years ago to show the crew in earlier editing stages and just redid the last 2 minutes or so. Deleted messy outro and made tough decision to leave it like that. The second half was originally intended to get as much attention to detail as the first half and I couldnt even think of releasing but Daniel (Enin) insisted I should just throw it out and he is right. I hope its still enjoyable, but please excuse a few rough cuts and loose arrangement of clips during the last bits especially. Please enjoy the final chapter of the infamous MNSTR BLADE crew: MNSTR BLADE III - TRU SOUL. It’s been a ride. - Jo Zenk.
