ARTFUL DEPTH • A SEPARATION

No fancy shit, straight story teller – Asgard Farhari’s A Separation captures the details and depth of human decisions in powerful way.  The choices made by the characters are the most engaging, each having their own charm.  The story can’t pan out any better.  Check: A Separation 

ON TO THE NEXT

ROCKSTEAD – GI / DLC

“This is one of ROCKSTEAD’ s finest knives. This blade shape is Honzukuri. Honzukuri is a blade type used for a traditional Japanese sword – very strong and efficient.  The haft on this knife is made and wrapped by a traditional Japanese sword craftsman.  Adding this knife will make your collection complete. It is a knife that incorporates our finest technology. The production of this knife has ended”

DREAM & CHASE

HUMAN BONDS

Sometimes I think a commercial could be thought of as an idea and the product as its character. Before expecting an idea to be accepted, it’s important to break it down and explain, detailing the common bond. Present an idea in a way the viewers experiences are similar. In a way thats genuine. The more natural the connection the more personal it becomes and the easier it is to relate. MORE »

WINTER BLISS

Looking forward to being back at home base and crush some fresh snow. Clothier Commune set the itch with this well shot video out in Tahoe.  Hobby snowboard makers Spring Break add a new level of fun to the typical with their long board/surf influenced designs.

DEATH INSPIRES • LATERAL SCALES

The type of thinking it takes to innovate and execute such beautifully constructed works of art makes you wonder where the inspiration came from. Excluding technique, from what I was told Riusuke Fukahori had a pet Goldfish growing up as a child, he remembers the day his prize died and has kept that memory close ever since. The organic connection of death inspiring life in art. Kudos.
