is a short film documenting two skateboarders' journey from Boston to
New York - approximately 212 miles. Equipped with just skateboards,
tents, new shoes, and whatever else would fit in their backpacks, Adam
and Zach set off on a two week journey along the East Coast, attempting
to cover roughly 30 miles a day and using their network of friends to
help them out as they went. The aim? To rediscover a feeling that has
been partially lost in this modern age - "the personal connection with a
place, its characteristics, and its characters."

- an award-winning short film directed by Oliver Holms. It takes a
funny look at the work of an ageing foley artist, who uses increasingly
unorthodox methods to soundtrack a fashion film. What starts off as a
normal behind-the-scenes look at the film's production quickly escalates
into something quite surreal, with scenes involving ducks, shaved cats,
and high heels. Watch below.

New Balance Numeric
- the skate shoe side-arm of the popular sneaker brand - has released a
6-minute skate video shot entirely on an iPhone 6. Entitled "Data
Roaming", the video was filmed in eastern Canada by Russell Houghten and
James Messina and features pro team riders such as PJ Ladd, Arto Saari,
Jordan Taylor, Levi Brown, Tom Karangelov, Jack Curtin, Anthony
Schultz, and Marquise Henry. If they hadn't have pointed out what they

many skate-able obstacles as possible. The inspiration for the trip and
video comes from a quote which reads: "We live amidst surfaces, and the
true art of life is to skate well on them." Check it out below!

In search of adventure, Red Bull
sent some its pro skateboarding team to the tiny island of Malé in the
Maldives, where over 150,000 cram themselves onto a just 5.8
square-kilometres of land, making it one of the most densely populated
cities in the world.

down small alleyways on a scooter, the next you're staring off into the
sunset where there isn’t another person for hundreds of miles," says
Sam McGuire, one of the photographers on the trip. "It didn't take much
convincing of people to go, and Nick Boserio, Nick Garcia, Jordan Trahan
and Korahn Gayle jumped at the chance to roll the dice in paradise and
