Line Of Sight / Official Trailer

Line Of Sight about Lucas Brunelle directed by Benny Zenga
My friend Benny Zenga just sent me the trailer for his new film “Line Of Sight” and it looks intense! The film’s focus is Lucas Brunelle who has used customized helmet cameras to capture the insane world of underground bicycle messenger racing, for over a decade.

Watch the trailer below! (Titles by Futura!)

    That looks awesome, but what’s with the guns? 

    • did a short gun chase scene through mountains of guatemala for ya

  • Zamzam Ishaq

    this looks sooo awesome/intense/amaazing

  • Marin

    yeah, that gun thing!

    i do same everymorning..
    no, was just kidding!

  • Benny Z

    Ever seen a car chase with guns? You’ll see on the DVD there’s a film
    within the film called ‘Chasing Demons’ which is Lucas’ response to the
    lack of bicycle shootouts in the movies.

  • Dave

    Definately gunna be after this DVD. My eyes have been opened to one of the coolest things i’ve ever seen haha. and the little movie in movie thing is an awesome idea

  • Guest

    This looks like a beautifully made film, but doesn’t it show couriers as being horribly selfish- with no consideration for anyone else on the streets? Be they in cars or otherwise….

    Busting wing mirrors and nearly causing accidents is resolutely not cool. Sorry to get all judgmental : )

  • Waller

    This looks incredible! Can’t wait to see it! Again, don’t understand the gun sequences, but I’m sure that’ll all become clear

  • Timux6

    total fucking idiots, giving cycling a very bad name. 

  • Wolfgang

    The camera work is cool, but do we really need a video glorifying this behaviour? 

    Crossing in front of unsuspecting drivers, running people over (1:41)! Seriously? When is forcing the innocent people around you into dangerous situations ever cool? These people need to take some deep breaths before they continue promoting themselves as rock stars.

    I know the cyclists vs. the world debate is never ending (and that this video isn’t exactly about day-to-day riding), but I don’t own a car nor a bicycle, and as a pedestrian I am way more scared of cyclists. They seem to possess a deep seeded denial that they are on a /vehicle/ and have to obey traffic signals and laws. Would people find this as “incredible” if the riders were on, say, motorcycles? Because there is really no difference.

    @ Wolfgang, The older I get the more I realize that none of the monkeys give a fuck about anyone but themselves, no matter how upright they walk.

  • DexterRexter

    I’m a cycling advocate, city bike/ped advisory committee member, a parent of two small bicycle raised kids and I strongly discourage rogue cycling behavior but I think people need to recognize when behavior jumps scale by necessity. These are not normal cyclists in normal environments. Urban couriers have to ride in the dangerous chaos to get where their deliveries need to go. They don’t get to choose the tree lined bike lane streets for their commutes. Waiting for the right of way in urban environments often gets a cyclists nowhere. Sometimes they have to get across many lanes to make a delivery on the other side of traffic that is hostile to cars and bikes. They have to hone skills that most cyclists will never need to use. These events give them a chance to share stories and socialize.

    I was on a college tour of Europe with a professional bus driver who pushed a small car out of the way with his bus in traffic in Paris, drove the wrong way down a one way street in Rome and changed it’s direction for the afternoon, had the strong people on the bus lift a small BMW out of the way so he could park and still had a diamond pendent for a million accident free miles. Life and locations have their shades of grey and every situation has it’s appropriate actions.

    I’m glad I get to go along for the ride and see my family at the end of the day without breaking a 6th helmet. I won’t hesitate to show this to my kids and they will know it’s not how they are supposed to ride but they will enjoy the skills these riders have.

  • SatanicAvocado

    Film looks good. just goes to show that it’s not just some car drivers who are stupid – it’s often the cyclists who are worse! Jerremy Clarkson’s gonna love this.

  • Taylor Barringer

    Every time I see the trailer for the new movie Ride, I come watch this and am way more impressed.

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
