Nathanael Balon made his move from touring as a drummer for Skrillex to starting his own company called Woodsmithe. Carpentry is now his creative outlet, and he’s been busy designing beautiful spaces in Los Angeles for folks like Handsome Coffee Roasters. You can see all the people featured in the series here: The Collective.

This is a sponsored post for the series Don Julio: “Make Your Move”: The Collective. The video series highlights individuals who have switched from jobs they weren’t interested in to follow their true passions. Watch the video about Nathanael’s story below.

Music Video: Woodkid “The Golden Age” Featuring Max Richter “Embers”

woodkid-goldenage

“The Golden Age” is the final single and video from Woodkid’s debut album, and it is a stunner. He collaborated with composer Max Richter here so the music you hear is actually a blending of “The Golden Age” with a new version of Richter’s “Embers”.

Woodkid, whose real name is Yoann Lemoine, is simply operating on an entirely different level from everyone else. The guy’s only 31; he releases a concept album in a time where most artists are only concerned with singles, directs all his own videos (all of which were brilliant), oh, and found time to be Pharrell’s creative director.

I love his choice for the album’s videos to slowly change from really slick, effects-heavy, spectacles to the exact opposite. This is the type of video that gets me excited about photography.

Watch “The Golden Age” below.

Drawing On The Past: Eben Haines

eben-for-Booooooom

Here’s another terrific submission to our “Drawing On The Past” project with Herschel Supply. Thank you to Eben Haines!

He writes: “It’s hard to write something like this without sounding overly sentimental or hackneyed but my younger brother has always been a model for me. Despite being diagnosed with dyslexia when he was six, by twenty he maintains a fluency in three foreign languages and can read and write in several others. I doubt he knows, but his resiliency and determination have fed my efforts since we were kids, and his support and inspiration have been a driving force in forming the artist I am today.

All this month I will be hooking up people with Herschel Supply goods (backpacks, duffels, etc) just for joining in on the fun. I’ll be picking a couple more this week. 3 lucky people will receive our very special Booooooom and Herschel Supply bag. If you wanna join the project the instructions are below!
