DC SHOES: Magenta

A long time coming, can finally share this project for DC Shoes X Magenta. I directed, shot, edited, and did VFX & animation; Vince Canger handled the amazing sound design and score. It was cool bringing Soy Panday’s illustrations to life in the “spiritual journey” animation section, and creating the art direction for all the different “dimensions” that we wormhole through.

Thanks Gaeton Salvignol, Soy, and Chuckie for additional grip/PA help.

Girl "Doll" Skits!

Here’s both skits on their own. The Mike Mo skit has an alternate ending from the one in the full video—let us know which one you like more! Thanks to Ccccchaves and Sam Perkin for the scores of each video.

Girl "DOLL"

Girl Skateboards asked me to make a few skits for their new video, “Doll.” Connor and I headed out there and shot two of them during one boiling day in LA. Here’s the full video:

The skits start at about 10:45 and 19:04.

VICELAND

Had a fun time making a series of indents for Viceland, to play alongside their skate shows on  air. We made about 15 pieces in total; I'll try to add them as they become available online.

Waltz Through Babylon - Spirit Quest Soundtrack 7" Vinyl

A lot of people have asked me about the long delay in posting a certain Spirit Quest part: Connor Kammerer's. Well... this is why....

Waltz-Jacket-and-Record.jpg

 

The 7" vinyl record of the soundtrack to Connor's section is finally ready! Connor's record features a new, extended mix of the Spirit Quest Dub (which is made of looping diegetic skate sounds), and the night section's Waltz Through Babylon.

You can get the record for only 10 bucks here: connorkammerer.bigcartel.com

Additionally, I'm giving a free digital copy of the video away with each record purchase--including the theatrical cut of the video, and all bonus features.

Head over to Connor's site if you want a copy--it's a small run, so if you want one, get on it.

...And here is the part, of course.
