  • This is really cool. Except that it says paintings by Holton Rower and theres mostly one lady doing all the pouring -_-

      It’s always about the person with the vision behind the project. It’s why we associate a director as the creator of a film, though hundreds of people work on them.

    We know exactly what happens when you pull a lot of color one after each other on a surface like this, but it is amazing how we can not stop watching this and keep being so fascinated about the result…so simple but so effective, specially on a big surface…it looks great…

    Many big artists have other people do the production work.

    I really love it.
    It’s hypnotic and as someone has said even if we all know the result of adding colors to eachother makes, it works.

“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!
