Poler is now 84 Days in, has since graduated, and is documenting herself facing all kinds of fears from quitting her job and posing nude for a life drawing class, to walking around New York blindfolded. See more images and some video clips from Poler’s inspiring project below!

WTF Video of the Day: Robbie Maddison Rides Iconic Tahiti Waves on Motorbike

RobbieMaddison-pipedream5 RobbieMaddison-pipedream8RobbieMaddison-pipedream7

This is not CGI, DC Shoes just released a ridiculous video of Robbie “Maddo” Maddison riding a modified motorbike into a wave at Teahupo’o. Not sure how the surf community will feel about Tahiti’s iconic waves being charged by a guy in motocross gear, the part where he rips past some people paddling just makes it all seem so obnoxious. While it’s hard to deny its brilliance from a design standpoint, this video will surely be divisive.

Watch Robbie Maddison’s “PIPE DREAM” video below.

Quite a unique style to this animation by Oleg Morozow and Arkady Kravchouk (The Happy Drummers) graduates of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Apparently the effect was achieved through a combination of 3D animation and the use of an old printer. Watch the animation below.

Video of the Day: Kinabuhi – A Portrait of Filipino Coconut Farmers

kinabuhi

Filmmaker Danny Cooke’s short documentary, Kinabuhi, is a beautiful portrait of a group of Filipino coconut farmers whose livelihood is in doubt. Plenty of gorgeous shots in this short documentary to draw you right in. I was immediately struck by how dangerous these farmers jobs are, and there is just something so satisfying about watching people with a mastery of very specific skills. The man in the image above is casually climbing a tree cutting little footholds as he goes.

Watch Kinabuhi below.
