Long Live The Kings

Long Live The Kings
I am well aware this is a commercial disguised as a documentary but I love the look of Super 16mm and this beauty is all film. Watch below!

Directed by Clement Beauvais.

    Sorry to desappoint you here, but this documentary has nothing to do with a commercial.
    Edwin jean’s company has been credited here because they made this happen by being the partner of it, allowing us to purchase the expensive 16 mm films.
    Besides that, nobody got paid and we genuinely lived the experience of a road trip (like we do every year): bad/good weather, cheesy trailer parks, fun, friendship, laughs, breakdowns and discover of the area we decided to drive through. In a word, some memories for ever.

    • i’m not sure why you started with “sorry to disappoint you” as if i was hoping it was an ad? i actually called it a beauty and loved the look of it. i wouldn’t have posted it here if i didn’t think it had artistic merit.

      i enjoyed watching it and wanted to share it here and also wanted to describe what people were going to watch. i never made any comment about people being paid or not. my comment didn’t even have anything to do with Edwin. the entire film is a promotion for your motorcycles, i don’t think that’s debatable – it is similar to a look book.

      people send me several fashion films/video look books each week and i don’t post them but i decided that eventhough this could be put into that category i would post it anyways. my guess is you haven’t hung around here long enough to understand why i prefaced your film this way.

      i hope you understand i really liked it. that’s it.

      cheers,

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
