My friend Ian Durkin and surfer Trevor Gordon made this mellow little video together, featuring Trevor riding a handful of weird finless surfboards shaped by Ryan Lovelace. Watch “Tail Fin Trials” below.
While working on her Master’s Degree at the School of Visual Arts, New York-based art director Michelle Poler was broadly instructed to do one thing every day for 100 days. Taking her assignment to the next level, Poler created the 100 Days Without Fear project.
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!
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.
Visionary director Nabil and United Realities utilized GoPro cameras to shoot a spherical video for Foals’ “Mountain At My Gates”. You can view the video below (in Chrome) but to really get the full effect you should open it in the Youtube App on your phone. Stand in one place, and move your phone around as you watch the video.
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.
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.
