Booooooom x WeTransfer: HEAVY DREAMERS (Full Film)

heavy-dreamers-01

Earlier this year we teamed up with WeTransfer to profile a diverse group of artists and investigate their creative motivations while they made work at the Pow! Wow! Hawaii arts festival. Huge thanks to director David Ehrenreich and cinematographer Liam Mitchell, it was an amazing experience working with them once again. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this little piece, I hope you enjoy it! Please view it full screen HD if your connection is fast enough!

HEAVY DREAMERS features interviews with: Hot Tea, Kevin Lyons, James Jean, Tatiana Suarez, Nosego, Lauren YS, Klone, Smithe, Case, and JPatt.

Pow! Wow! Hawaii Video by Werehaus

pow-wow-hawaii-werehaus

powwowhawaii-werehaus

Friendly dudes outta San Fran, from a studio called Werehaus, put together a bunch of candid footage from their time at Pow! Wow! Hawaii. Kinda hard to tell what’s happening in most of the video as there’s a lot of random footage and no names/titles on screen, but you do get to see some artists and walls I haven’t featured.

My only complaint is that we don’t get to see Andrew Schoultz skateboard in front of everyone’s murals (just his own). Watch the video below.
