Max Schaaf - Born Free 4

"'My name is Max Schaaf, I'm 39 years old, from Oakland, California.' It's a straightforward statement that begins the video profile of a no-nonsense guy with style to burn. Max builds bikes for a living through 4Q ('Do my wares', as he puts it) and skateboards on the side. The short film, by Mark Choiniere for Born-Free 4, presents Max's story, from how he got first into motorcycles, to what he would consider to be his dream bike (it's seen briefly in the 1967 film Hell Angels on Wheels), and finally what he's building for Born-Free 4 (a '57 Panhead).

The Epic & The Beasts

"The Epic & The Beasts is a new experimental skate video by German filmmaker, Sebastian Linda. It's full of beautiful slow motions shots, crazy close-ups and wonderfully edited to an equally wonderful soundtrack. Not to mention the skating is also pretty damn good. This is seven minutes of your time well spent. Enjoy."

This Is Ozzie

"In collaboration with Volcom and Electric Visual, Desillusion Magazine present 'This Is Ozzie' - a video portrait of Australian surfer Ozzie Wright. Raised in a family of Hippies, Ozzie grew up on the beaches of northern Sydney and quickly became famous for the humour and DIY philosophy he brought to surfing through the punk and skate scenes."
'From the paintings on his boards, the shape, his special way of surfing (a melange of strength and airs, normally done in skateboarding), to the creation of his punk rock band Goon of Doom, Ozzie's the man who gave new insight to surfing, a fresh perspective that inspired a whole generation of surfers.'

Tales From The Rails

"As the 1980's came to an end so did the graffiti on New York City's subway trains. During this same era graffiti writers were just beginning to discover the possibilities of painting America's freight-train system.
In 1992, filmmaker M. Nielsen began documenting this phenomenon. For this video he has captured hundreds of classic works from coast to coast recorded interviews with the likes of T. Favin and Yen 34; and documented live 'missions' with such writers as Monk, Keot, Ewok, Rehab and Kon. Shot in color and B&W Super 8 film, Hi-8 video and 35mm photographs; Tails From The Rails is a presentation of the 'Freight Movement' filmed over an 8 year time span and shot in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Art of Logo Design

"Logos surround us in digital and physical space, but we rarely examine the thought and artistic thinking that goes into the design of these symbols. Utilizing a silent vocabulary of colors, shapes, and typography, logo designers give a visual identity to companies and organizations of all types. From cave painters to modern designers, artists throughout history have been reducing the complex down to simple ideas that communicate with the world."

ZOO YORK - The Chaz Ortiz Video

"Cutting all your riders except those under contract is perhaps not the best message a skate brand could send, but the politricks of the industry has nothing to do with the act of skateboarding itself, and in this new 4-minute video, filmed over the past ten months in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston and Miami, Chaz Ortiz deals only with what really matters: ripping."

"You can listen to the album Here."
A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition

"Actor and filmmaker, Jeremiah McDonald had the ingenious idea of filming himself back in 1992 when he was 12 so that twenty years down the line he could have a conversation with his grown-up self. The result is a brilliant video that is not only hilarious, but also tackles a more fundamental question about our lives and goals: What was our passion as children (and deep down still is)? What did/do we want to do with our lives when we grow up? Thankfully thought, even two decades later Jeremiah still enjoys Star Wars and Dr. Who. Some things change, some things stay the same."

Caldas Late Night by Bike

"Lisbon – Caldas da Rainha: 130 kms on a fixed gear bike.

Why? To attend the 16th edition of Caldas Late Night - an annual event organized by Art and Design college students – while having some fun on wheels along the way.

CLN’s main purpose is to promote and showcase different kinds of artistic expressions, such as performances, painting exhibitions, live music, photography and more. During the event, the streets are invaded by all sorts of installation art and the students transform their homes in authentic galleries, opening the doors to anyone who wants to visit them.

All footages shot with a GoPro Hero. My friends rode normal road bikes, by the way."

HAME by Angus Sung

"Here it is, HAME. Scottish slang for Home. This video sees Dave Hall featuring in his second web edit, this time joined by his friend, James Wright.
This two part video sees them riding from Glasgow, Scotland and set out to tackle Crow Road. A notorious climb that starts in Lennoxtown and twists it's way 7 miles towards Gonachan Cottage.
As this would be the last time I'd be working with Dave on UK soil for at least 18months, I felt that it was only right to add in a little extra at the end of the originally planned video."
