During the filming of State Of The Art, master videographer Jonas Hansson got to visit Canada, Japan, the good ol’ USA, and also toured all over Europe. That’s three different continents, ten different countries, and over twenty different cities… And it’s not just a gimmick, but arguably the most traveling done for the production of a blade video in the past five years. All the more impressive for an independent flick!

Traveling all over the planet allowed Jonas Hansson to capture one of the most diverse line-up of bladers ever, and a pretty much unmatched variety of spots and scenery as well! In order to not only create a solid blading piece, but more importantly an entertaining film all throughout, Jonas packed his bags, bought a handful of plane tickets, and got himself on the road. That left him with lots of bills to pay, and brought us one of the best videos ever made in return!

One of his filming trips for SOTA involved spending a week in Malaga, Spain, where Jonas caught up with local resident Josh Glowicki, tagging along with USD pro Montre Livingston & blade legend Robert Guerrero. There, under the sunny skies of Andalusia, he managed to capture one of the most stunning part of the film (have you seen the hidden pipe bit yet?) and a healthy number of stunts along the way too!

Fortunately for our readers, and presumably anyone who hasn’t been able to watch State Of The Art yet, Danish photographer, international gypsy & good friend Michael Pedersen was on the spot in Malaga and witnessed the making of this masterpiece, as you might have seen in the Behind The Scenes edit he just released yesterday. Now you can take a look for yourself, and check out the full photo gallery below: enjoy!
