An American Tail Remix.

Last month I posted that fabulous Alice video and this week I received an email from Jacques Christo. He was so inspired by the video that he went and made a downtempo track from his favourite animated film: An American Tail (great choice!).

I think a little more interaction between the samples and the cutting of the visuals would help but i particularly like his opening when the beat starts! The music is quite beautiful – it’s a shame you can’t download it.

An American Tail has a great melancholic feel to it and I remember other animated films from around this time like All Dogs Go To Heaven, having a similar feeling – It’s perfectly suited for this kind of music.

Nice work Jacques – this is what the site is all about! You get inspired by something here, you go out and make something, and you can come back here and share it (hopefully inspiring someone else to do the same!)

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
