Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

In Residence: “Rose Uniacke” by Matthew Donaldson

posted by on 29/07/2015

All over the world there are beautiful gems hidden, some more hidden then others, some very personal and private. The home is, in an ideal world, the most personal and private of spaces, a safe and comfortable place. Who knows what beauty lay behind the doors of homes, especially in a city as diverse and rich (not necessarily financially) as London. I can’t help but appreciate the artistry behind the interior design in Rose Uniacke’s home, her supreme attention to detail is a thing of wonder in this 19th century Georgian home, which is full of heart and soul. As if I didn’t already, I’ll now be wondering even more what’s behind the doors of mysterious London homes as I walk the streets. Catch the video after the cut.

EYLENDA – ICELAND 4K

posted by on 28/07/2015

BEWARE – The following video may melt your eyes. You have been warned. Believe it or not, this stunning video was shot by two Audiovisual Media students from Germany for a film project they were set over the semester. Over 14 days they managed to capture this captivating footage, their aim they say, “was to capture the stunning landscape and wildlife to take you on a journey through this magical island.” Mission accomplished. My only problem is having such slow broadband that it’s taken me about an hour to watch, an hour well spent though, you’ve got to watch it in full 4K! Video after the cut.

Chaz Bundick (Toro y Moi) | Sketch to Screen

posted by on 23/06/2015

There’s not much Chaz Bundick can’t do. An inspiration to many out there, the singer (better known as Toro y Moi), producer, illustrator, designer and entrepreneur is just too-cool-for-school. This time around, he collaborates with LA-based platform Yours Truly to create this awesome little short film about how his graphics and illustration meets with his music. His quirkiness shines through, as he showcases his cool sketches and prints them on to t-shirts. I mean, if anything, it’s inspired me to do the same and avoid the bullsh*t prices we have to put up with from brands these days. But hey, that’s another conversation to be had. In the meantime, check this great little video after the cut and wish how you were Chaz’s friend.

Open Air | Rare Images of Michael Jordan

posted by on 11/06/2015

Jordan brand turns 30. A hugely successful basketball apparel brand, the clothing was designed, owned and produced for Michael Jordan – arguably one of the greatest sportsman to ever live. In celebration of this, and my love for the sport in general, we’re going to be all basketball these next two days. To kick us off, I’m sharing an awesome collection of images I came across recently on The Players’ Tribune (a fantastic sports blog written by those involved the most – players, coaches, everything). The images are on display in Chicago, and were taken by photographer Walter Iooss Jr. Walter says it was impossible to take a bad picture of Michael Jordan, and these images are a gift to the city of Chicago, much like Michael was all them years ago. Click through to see some of these stunning shots.

Gravity Experiments by Clemens Wirth

posted by on 18/05/2015

Now, this is pretty awesome. Clemens Wirth, a director and visual artist from Austria, has created this beautifully fascinating short film experimenting with gravity and a variety of objects and materials. A simple idea that creates visuals you can’t take your eyes off. By simply rotating the rig 360 degrees, Clemens was able to create wonderful practical effects and behaviours from the subjects. A brilliant example of creating art from motion, all while keeping the camera completely still. Check out the video after the cut.

SpaceX Mars Travel Posters

posted by on 16/05/2015

These are brilliant. SpaceX, an American aero-space manufacturer and transport company, has just released these awesome vintage-inspired Mars travel posters. With the posters depicting – and showing off – various parts of the planet that we have discovered (and named), they make travelling to Mars a thing of the present time, not something that is potentially centuries away (still something that will happen, nonetheless). They’re beautifully designed and you’d struggle to not be excited about the future of space exploration and travel after seeing these. Check them out after the cut.

Casablanca by Kent Andreasen

posted by on 08/05/2015

As a keen photographer, you often find yourself taking shots that you didn’t initially set out to take. For example, you may well be out taking photos for a commissioned piece of work when suddenly something else captures your eye that is miles off the brief and direction you have been given. But you capture it. Because you just can’t help it. That’s the story behind this collection of images on It’s Nice That by 24-year-old South African photographer Kent Andreasen that I had recently stumbled across. On a trip to Casablanca for Nike football culture (this work is incredible also, by the way), Kent ended up shooting through multiple rolls of film in documenting the local area. The results are amazing. Check out some shots after the cut and more of his work on his website.

A Walker in New York City | The New York Times

posted by on 28/04/2015

Courtesy of The New York Times, here’s a timelapse video of JR, a french artist, creating a ridiculously large mural on the busy streets of Manhattan. The mural which looks like a man on his commute through the city is around 150 foot long. One thing I like about timelapses is how easy they make even the hardest tasks look – watch it on the flipside.
