iBIKE

So, what’s this? This is nice. This is about cycling. On bicycles. There is no better way from A to Z. Cycling keeps you in good health. Gets you some fresh air.
Keeps you in touch with nature. With the weather. The seasons. And with the flat cold rain straight in your face.
There are many good things to say about cycling. Albert Einstein did. ‘I thought of that while riding my bicycle’ – he said about the Theory of Relativity.
Quite a curious vehicle, the bike. Plus; its passenger is its engine. Anyway, people should bike more. And you don’t need one of these Canadian vélo’s.

Scrap surf

All good things start from scrap. That’s one truth. So, what’s left to say? Shwood sells handmade wooden sunglasses, Blecha Boards does the same with surf- snow- and skateboards. Both founders cooperated in this short film to prove they could build a high quality surfboard from scrapwood and asked Kahana Kalama to test the board to the limits for them. Filmed by Joe Stevens and accompanied by some mood enhancing music.

Dark side of the lens

Yes, we know it’s a bit old. But it’s beautiful. This short film is part of the Short Stories project, established by Relentless Energy Drink. This project challenged filmmakers to create their own mini opus, to explore and celebrate ‘no half measures’ in film. Irish surf photographer Mickey Smith definitely defined it.

Together with Allan Wilson as director of photography, he shows a side to surfing that few of us, as observers or surfers, will glimpse: the life of the photographer.

Address is Approximate

The Pacific Coast is a wonderful destination, but that’s not what it’s about. It’s about the journey, of course. For this toy however, the only way to go is Google maps. And with the help of his persistently clicking friend, he actually travels from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way down to the Pacific Coast. Bravo.
The Theory are Tom Jenkins & Simon Sharp. They won a Webby Award for this short animation and were signed by talent agency William Morris Endeavour in Los Angeles. The music is from the Cinematic Orchestra.

Samsara

Samsara is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘the ever turning wheel of life’. The greatest  achievement in Buddhism is to perceive Samsara as Nirvana, but this film might change some Monks’ minds. Or not. Its title must be paradoxical on purpose.

The film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, Samsara explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous.

The Art of Making – Alma Flamenca

Craftsmanship. It’s a huge relief to see that it still exists, in such a dedicated manner. Which applies for the making of the guitar as well as for the film. And of course the music in the video, composed by Dutch flamenco guitarist Edsart Udo de Haes. Makes us all want to sit under a tree to enjoy the evening sun with a bottle of wine, guitar music and the smell of fresh carved wood. But that’s just us.

Benga – directed by Us

Us are Chris Barrett and Luke Taylor. When they were asked to come up with an idea for the video for the track, they received a Soundcloud link. This enabled them to not only listen to the track, but watch it too. They felt there was something mesmerizing about its simplicity and this ignited the idea to create a real life three dimensional waveform. The idea of using vinyl records came from the need of creating a sense of physicality to music, since most music is consumed online.

But how the ffff.. did they do it?
