Going to Puerto Rico

Yeah! I can't believe it myself! Lucky me is going to Puerto Rico for the next two weeks working at the next ASP tour stop. I will join the team and work with some friends on an episode for Surf Chronicles, a Surfing TV Magazine by Red Bull.

I found two episodes on the web, I bet there are more online. Just look for it.

Episode 7:

Episode 1:

I'm really looking forward for this opportunity!
This event could turn out to be a historical, because Mr. Slater is on the brink of winning his 10th world title.

Alright! My stuff is packed, my board is waxed and my batteries are fully charged!

Burn Ignite :: Ride :: feat Steve Berra

I just came across this little movie. It's not new, but it's just sooo good I had to post it too. It seems that all those energy drink companies out there really care about making sick films! I dig that! Great camerawork combined with some neat VFX shot on a 5d II with PL lenses...

Burn Ignite :: Ride :: feat Steve Berra (OFFICIAL HD) from Burn Ignite on Vimeo.

Steve Berra (The Berrics) joins Mexican skaters Jesus Gonzalez, Eder Martinez, Mario Saenz, Angel Santiago and American Luis Tolentino for this Burn Ignite film, shot on location in Mexico City.

This film was created alongside two short-form documentaries, one featuring Jess Kimura and the all girl hardcore snowboarding film collective Peep Show, the other is a portrait that celebrates the electric lyrics and gritty beat artistry of rapper/poet Julius Wright, aka Lyrical God.

Directed by Garth Davis
DOP: Greig Fraser
Camera: Canon 5D II (PL mount)
Music written produced & performed by Django Django

Indonesia pics on my Flickr

I started uploading photographs by Luke and me on my Flickr some time ago. Today I added some more... there are already 292 photos online which show roughly our first three weeks of the trip. So a lot more is coming ;) And I'm also working on a trip-movie. We have some really nice footage and I can't wait to show it to everybody! But I'm doing all this stuff in my spare time, so it will take some time until everything is done and online, it's a lot of work. And on the side I need to make some money too ;) It's actually a good time right now.. things are working out good jobwise. Soon I can tell you more... :)

Here are some of my favorite Indonesia photos so far:

All photos shot by Luke and me with Nikon and Panasonic gear.

Nike - More Than The Run - Sneakerness 2010

Things are quite busy around me right now. I did a few jobs and one was a little recap-video of the Sneakerness 2010 for Nike. Was fun!

The video appeared all over the web.

_Sneakerness website
_supercity.at blog
_various Facebook sites (Nike Sportwear, RUN VIE, Sneakerized, snkrbook, ...)

All shot handheld with "my still not hacked, but soon" GH-1 with the Pana 20/f1,7, FD 50/f1,4 and the kit. For the little statement of Bobbito Garcia I was using a Sennheisser ME66 plugged into my Zoom H4n.

I did also some Making Of photos which Nike used in their books shown at the Sneakerness.
