does them justice. Big turns. Big airs. As aggressive as we’ve ever
seen Wade. Monster Children put this together and it’s the fire surfing

Simon Cade has shared a fascinating video over on his Vimeo page DSLRguide taking a look at how much of BBC’s Planet Earth, and nature documentaries in general, are real and how much of it is just clever storytelling.
The show picks apart a number of scenes, looking at how narratives are
created and conflicts are manipulated in order to humanise the animals
to get an emotional response from the viewer. It’s a very interesting
watch, and rather than fully criticising nature documentaries as the
title of the video might suggest, Simon praises the balance of real and
fake content shows like Planet Earth portray.

Splinters is the first feature length documentary film about the evolution of
indigenous surfing in the developing nation of Papua New Guinea. In the
1980s an intrepid Australian pilot left behind a surfboard in the
seaside village of Vanimo. Twenty years on, surfing is not only a pillar
of village life but a means to prestige. With no access to economic or
educational advancement, let alone running water and power, village life
is hermetic. A spot on the Papua New Guinea national surfing team is
the way to see the wider world; the only way.
Three students at The Animation Workshop in Denmark have created this bizarre and disturbing animated short film titled Cream.
The film takes place in a doctor's waiting room where soothing music and
the opportunity to enjoy an ice cream brings about an alleviating
atmosphere. What could possibly go wrong in a healthcare institution
where help is nearby? The cold and ugly sides of human nature reveal
themselves as the narrative touches on the cycle of birth and death and
the absurdity of life. Let's hope the doctor can help!

The 25 two-minute surf movies that make up Taylor Steele’sINNERSECTION
were each created by the surfers themselves. From stars like Kelly Slater and Joel Parkinson to performers like Josh Kerr and Craig Anderson to underdogs like Peter Devries and Matt Meola, these are the
best freesurfers in the world, chosen from over 150 international
submissions by an online audience. But these aren’t the videos that you
saw online. Once the surfers qualified for the movie, that’s when Taylor Steele went to work: producing the sections with the surfer/filmmaker
teams, then blending the parts together into a single, flowing surf
movie that changes pace, location and style like an aquatic
rollercoaster. The surfers come from all around the world: New Zealand,
Hawaii, Brazil, Peru, Australia and the US. The footage is the best of
the year. The twenty-five filmmakers each bring their own style to the
edits. And the final experience is something completely unique.

Nike has unveiled a powerful new ad showing what girls are truly made of.
Created by Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam, the spot puts a twist on a
traditional Russian children's song, which a young girl is singing on
stage at a theatre.
Initially, the lyrics tell us that girls are made of gossip, flowers,
and marmalade but, after seeing some sporting inspirations break into
the crowd, the girl starts singing about determination, independence,
skill, toughness and strength. The Nike spot ends with the young girl
holding a football, calming herself before taking a penalty.

where he could live and breathe skating—a place where people forget
their "outside" lives by plunging into high-energy craziness.

also takes a hard look at the flip side of Brewce's energy and charisma.
