How Nature Documentaries Are Fake || Short Video

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. 

 Watch and enjoy below!

The 25 two-minute surf movies that make up Taylor Steele’s INNERSECTION 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 || What are girls made of?

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.

Skatopia || 88 Acres of Anarchy

Skatopia is an Appalachian farm where hardcore skating, punk rock and hillbilly culture collide. Mad-Max style demolition derbies and spontaneous car burning accompany all-night skate sessions. Pain is a badge of honor. Tony Hawk calls Skatopia a "rite of passage" for hardcore skaters. Skatopia's owner, Brewce Martin, dreamed of a place where he could live and breathe skating—a place where people forget their "outside" lives by plunging into high-energy craziness. 
The movie celebrates the freedom from everyday life that Skatopia offers, but it also takes a hard look at the flip side of Brewce's energy and charisma.
