Guillaume Le Gentil: 1 Minute, 1 Spot

Guillaume Le Gentil, what’s in a name. This guy is not only named ‘ nice’ in French , he brings a more than nice bag of tricks to the table. Skating fast is the main ingredient. We filmed his ‘ One Minute…’ in about 30-35 minutes , on one of Amsterdam‘s slipperiest curbs , in Osdorp. And besides handeling his business nicely he’s a pretty nice guy too.
