By day Willie Witte is a documentary filmmaker working on a PBS series, but he uses his evenings to experiment with analog visual techniques. None of the visuals in this video are computer generated. Watch below!

  • love the sequence with the scissors!

    • still trying to wrap my head around what goes into actually making this

      • Snapshots of videos and videos and snapshots? Top stuff

  • mind. blown.

  • awesome!

  • bob

    Not computer generated? That was all made on a computer. Do you mean no 3d Computer models and animation?

    • sure – if you want to split hairs i could have said effects instead of visuals so as not to imply the video as a whole -obviously the editing and uploading onto the Internet requires a computer. the point i am trying to highlight is that the creativity is taking place in front of a camera lens. cheers

  • Oh the mind games!

  • amazing use of evenings.

  • benny boy

    I think I’m… going to stop trying now…

  • Hexaploid

    Confused… Is the implication here that this is all a continuous take? I don’t understand what is meant by “None of the visuals in this video are computer generated.” – if regular non-linear editing is being used then this is pretty straight forward. Clever, but not at all baffling. If there is no editing then, holy hell I have no idea how it was done.

  • I’m still trying to figure out how you did this! Great work.

  • johan


  • nice surreal video!

“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!
