Strange Beasts || Short Film

Strange Beasts is a short sci-fi film directed by London filmmaker Magali Barbé which is currently featured as a "Staff Picks" over on Vimeo. The near-future tale takes place over just five-minutes, but it’s as powerful and unsettling as any recent Black Mirror episode. 

 During the film, a games developer called Victor explains that "Strange Beasts" is an augmented reality game which allows you to create, grow and customise your own virtual pet. Everything seems harmless and innocent enough as he demonstrates the game and introduces us to his daughter and her virtual pet, but then the film reveals a disturbing twist. Watch below!

Sold Out || The Underground Economy of Supreme Resellers' || Full Length

In 1994, James Jebbia opened the first Supreme location in a small storefront on Lafayette Street in New York. At the time, Supreme was a brand for skaters by skaters—even the design for the shop was more open so skaters could come right in with their skateboards. But today, 21 years later, Supreme is a legendary streetwear brand that’s cultivated a cult following well beyond that original fan base. 

Continuing to release product in tightly controlled, limited amounts, the brand is as big as it wants to be in New York, Los Angeles, and London; a titan in Japan—arguably its largest market. Complex has covered Supreme for well over a decade (Complex was founded in 2002). In Lafayette Street shop in-store launches every story was the same:

 Lines snaked around the block, kids camped out for hours or days, sometimes even in subfreezing temperatures, just to get any Supreme item. Each Thursday drop was chaos. In April 2014, the NYPD canceled the Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite One in-store launch at the NYC flagship after a riot nearly broke out earlier that day. But there was something much bigger here. Complex News team learned that many were in line to purchase gear that they’d later flip online for big profits, selling apparel and other items for as much as 1,200 percent above retail value. 

 “We started to get to know these people and realized there was a business here and real money to be made,” explains Emily Oberg, Complex Editorial Producer and one of the directors of this documentary. While the reselling market is hardly new, and people have been selling Supreme online for years, it’s yet to be the focus of serious investigation—until now.

Revisiting the Glory Days With One of Japan's Most Violent Biker Gangs || Documentary

Japanese motorcycle gangs have wreaked havoc since the 1970s. Known as Bosozuku, these gangs have a violent history, raging war against rival crews and cops. Gang members roamed the highways, sometimes hundreds at a time, with an array of brutal weaponry, customized bikes, and distinct crew jumpsuits. Being part of one of these motorcycle gangs was a frantic lifestyle, one that could easily lead to grievous bodily harm, and death.

 Youth were recruited from their early teens to join the gangs under the mentorship of an elder. It was of utmost importance to protect the reputation of the gang, to never run from a fight, even when grossly outnumbered.

In recent years, with strict laws and police cracking down, Bosozoku have become nearly extinct. Yet for those who were a part of the subculture during its heyday, Bosozoku will always provide a fond memory of the recklessness of youth.

AFTERMATH || Short Film

In 2015, Oliver Kurtz and Sean Benik collaborated to create Serotonin, a 6-minute short. In it, Oliver scores one of the best waves of the winter at Pipe and the best wave of the summer at Newport Point (which landed him the cover of SURFER), and together with Sean’s quick cuts and abrupt song changes, it turned out to be one of the most memorable edits of the year. Now, two years later, Sean and Oliver teamed up again to make AFTERMATH. While it’s clearly a sequel to Serotonin, it’s three times as long, and three times as weird (in the best possible way).

Behind the Design || The Chosen 1

Hailing from Tokyo, Japan, what some call the global epicenter of sneaker collecting, atmos has had a long standing relationship with Nike. Working on their first collaboration back in 2001, one of atmos most revered collaborations was the elephant print and jade accented Air Max 1 released in 2007. Nearly ten years later, the design would go on to win Nike’s Vote Back campaign during Air Max Day 2016 for a return as part of this year’s Air Max Day celebration. Thanks to the collective voice of the community, the Air Max 1 atmos elephant was voted back amongst 100 other Air Max icons.

 But, how did the "Chosen 1" come to life? How did it become so iconic and revered by many?

What Youth || Afternoon Interview || Ronnie Sandoval

You don’t get to go pro for Krooked unless Mark Gonzales says so. And he said so for Ronnie Sandoval. Ronnie was bred at the world famous Channel Street Park in San Pedro, LA (which is in danger of going away forever as you’ll see). And might be one of the craziest tranny skaters around right now. He’s a skaters skater. Real. Genuine. And constantly trying to convert all the fucking scooter kids into skaters.

What Youth caught up with him in his hometown and learned he’s one of the raddest dudes they’ve ever hung with.

FORMER || LUXURY 29.99 featuring Craig Anderson

Dane Reynolds and Craig Anderson were once the most powerful marketing force in the game, with groms from Encinitas to Port Macquarie growing out their hair, blacking their crafts, and trading in their store-bought clothes for vintage finds. But then, something unforeseen happened. 
Dane and Craig tore up their contracts with their life-long sponsor, and headed out into the unknown. 
As we now know, the result of their hiatus is FORMER, but as nice as the tees are, the significant thing about the brand isn’t the clothes. What’s really going to shake things up is the what comes with the clothes, see below. 
The boys are as fired up to film as ever, and judging by the seven minutes below, could well be the kick in the pants that surfing so desperately needs.

FIFTEEN YEARS OF SB DUNK || Stories from the Inside Out

In an era where sneakers change hands between collectors for five and even six-figure sums, it's sometimes hard to remember when kicks weren't a 'grail' item for people worldwide. 15 years ago, sneakerheads were a subculture centered in New York, LA, London, Japan and the Internet. Then, in 2002, the Nike SB Dunk was introduced by Nike's fledgling skateboarding division, and an 80s basketball shoe ignited both the world of skateboarding and sneaker culture. 

 VICE Magazine had a front-row seat at the time as one of Nike SB's very first partners. So when the 15th anniversary rolled around we had an immediate thought – let's make a Dunk documentary that delves into the history of the SB Dunk, and charts how we got here.

 We found the story reflects the unique intersection of sneakerhead collectors with the skate community. Riders like Richard Mulder, Reese Forbes, Gino Iannucci, and Danny Supa helped determined the look, feel, approach and tone of the SB Dunk, in partnership with the Nike SB design team. That group quickly built a grassroots movement with skate retailers like Supreme and HUF, the nascent "hype" press of and NikeTalk, and new Nike team riders like Brian Anderson, Wieger van Wageningen and Paul Rodriguez. Informed by the "gotta have them all" mentality of OG Japanese collector/retailers like Hidefumi Hommyo (of Chapter and Atmos), sneaker-specific boutiques like Undefeated popped up, region-specific releases were developed, and the sneaker culture your hypebeast cousin now talks about incessantly was fully established.

 Today the SB Dunk is iconic, but it's easy to forget that it's still a skate shoe first and foremost that guys like Theotis Beasley, Sean Malto and Ishod Wair still rock religiously.

 Watch the inside story of the past 15 years hearing from shop owners, collaborators and skateboarders who helped make the SB Dunk a legend.

TWS Legend || Ray Barbee

The word “legend” gets tossed around rather freely these days. Nothing wrong with that. After some fifty years of unmatched technical and cultural progression—skateboarding’s cast of notables is chock full of legendary. Our cup runneth over. However, in the case of Ray Barbee, “LEGEND” should be with an uppercase “L,” in flashing lights, and in all caps. Here’s why.

Circle Jerks || My Career As A Jerk

The Circle Jerks occupy an odd place in the annals of punk-rock history. Formed in 1979 in an abandoned Baptist church in Hermosa Beach, California, the band became one of the most influential groups from the early hardcore era. However, after an unhappy experience with a major label, the band was largely sidelined during punk's rebirth in the 1990s. When they tried to resurface and make a record in 2009, producer Dimitri Coats was fired and lead singer Keith Morris followed him to form the band OFF! instead.
 While the Circle Jerks are now on indefinite hiatus, the documentary My Career As A Jerk takes an in-depth look at the lopsided history of the iconic California band.

Sneaker Broker || Short Documentary

Yeezys sell out nearly instantly due to backdoor-ing, bots and resellers. Sneaker resellers are somewhat of a pariah of the culture; their occupation is taboo and they largely fly under the radar. Yuanrun Zheng, better known in his circles as “23Penny” or “Z,” is the Sneaker Broker. He has a personal sneaker collection of over 500 pairs, but, for him, sneakers are just business. Z takes us on an unprecedented look into the world of resellers.

Portrait of an Artist || Felipe Pantone

A series of facts of varying importance on the topic of Felipe Pantone.

 Felipe Pantone is a contemporary slash kinetic slash graffiti artist living in Valencia, Spain. Selina Miles is a video director from Brisbane, Australia. Together, they celebrate their love of the internet and facts in this short film.
Directed and Edited by Selina Miles.

 Felipe Pantone’s body of work spans from graffiti to kinetic art. Strong contrasts, vivid colors, effects, and the use of mixed medium and varied technique combine to impact strongly on the viewer.

 What really intrigues is not the striking nature of his work, but the artist’s journey to discover this aesthetic. We live in a time where more images are produced than can possibly be seen, and the impetus for an artist to stand out from the others is stronger than ever. Information flows at an exponentially increasing rate, a leitmotif recurrent in Felipe Pantone’s compositions, his hyperactivity, working methods and his constant traveling around the world. 

 It was during this travel he met Selina Miles, an Australian filmmaker who specializes in documenting graffiti and street art. With a deep love for new techniques, camera tricks and fast-paced, energetic short films, Selina accepted Felipe's challenge of cramming as much information as possible into a 5 minute film.
