QUIK a skateboard film featuring Austyn Gillette
Here’s a captivating little skate film, shot entirely from a moving vehicle. Austyn Gillette rips so hard, I had to watch this several times in a row! Watch below!

Directed by Colin Kennedy.

    What is the background music??? It’s sounds great!!

  • Xallxsewnxupx

    super sick. what is the song? 

  • I longboard myself, and I’ve seen loads of vids of boarding of all sort…but never in my world could I imagine anything like this! The easiness in his movements, and the 0% failure is so intense.. Not to talk about the movie itself, that was just super.

  • Paul Gara

    We Barbarians-Chambray

  • Nate

    Sooo good. Been watching this a couple times a week for the past two months.

    the song is:
    We Barbarians – Chambray

  • Jesse Weinberg

    So Fresh!

  • TOASTRANDER

    So well done!

  • anyone noticed he changed his shirt two times? 🙂 I wish he didn’t tough, but that is pretty much the only thing I do not find utterly amazing. really beautiful work, I like the song and the whole thing!

    • eke

      yes, shirt-switching IMO spoils flow of movie, but this (skating) is gorgeous anyway

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
