"We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone"
Being on the filmmaking industry since 2015, Black Lava went through different stages that make it evolve as well as grow its confidence, experience, knowledge and notoriety.
Black Lava started working hands to hands with big action sports brands before looking further and diversify itself. Today, Black Lava has clearly own its place.
As far as I can remember I’ve always been passionate about filmmaking.
Back to Christmas 1999, when I received for the first time a camcorder as a gift from my parents, I never stopped using it. I was always looking at making littles stories with Legos, Action man and with my friends as characters.
Growing up near the ocean, I’ve been quickly attracted to water sports like surfing and sailing. Watching people being one with nature was so powerful to me, so I decided to moved towards the water sports videos.
Being a filmmaker is, first of all, being passionate about what you do and how you tell a story. You can’t judge a book by its cover.
My name is Louis-Arnaud Lavasier, I'm Mexican-Tahitian and I was born in 1993.
I’m the founder of Black Lava Production.
