an excerpt from Sweetgrass Productions' VALHALLA
From iconic shots of bare-assed chairlift riding to cliff airs wearing nothing more than socks and a smile, Valhalla’s naked ski segment is already sparking laughter through dark cinemas across the world, with skiers and non-skiers alike. For the full feature length film, head here: georiot.co/1ZKv
Starring Cody Barnhill, Sierra Quitiquit, Alex Monot, Pep Fujas, Zack Giffin, Eric Hjorleifson, Molly Baker, and Kazushi Yamauchi
Beyond action sports-- with Valhalla's totally unique style and structure, we've recognized an opportunity to put a daring new spin on the ski film, exploding the boundaries of the genre, opening the eyes and melting the hearts of any story-loving soul. With hard-hitting ski and snowboard action complimenting a more narrative-driven approach than our past films, or perhaps any other ski movie before it, we follow one man's escape into the Northern woods, and his wild journey towards satisfaction, understanding, and love in some of the deepest snows on earth.
Weaving story and character with award-winning, face-melting backcountry ski and snowboard cinematography; Valhalla is a vivid explosion of color, character, snow, and nostalgic soul.

The ACF Revolving Collective Presents: THE HARD GRAFT (The DJ Technique Applied To Menswear) Explained by Liam Maher of Denham
Produced by copenhagers.com, Film & Edit: Mattia Abeni
In occasion of latest CIFF Trade Show here in Copenhagen we got the honor and pleasure to pay a visit the the A.C.F. (Art Comes First) rotating Collective while they were presenting their latest project: THE HARD GRAFT.
We talked to Liam and Jennifer Maher from Denahm about it and put together a lovely explanatory video about it.
THE DJ TECHNIQUE APPLIED TO MENSWEAR
A Collaboration Between Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh with Matteo Gioli and Liam Maher
Progressing the tradition of menswear design from the past through the present into the future involves a process of hybridization, grafting, sampling and mixology.
Like a DJ digging through classic vinyl, remixing standards from the jazz and pop musical canon, menswear designers attempt to harmonize the most potent influences from their vintage research within a single contemporary concept. Sam and Shaka of Art Comes First step into the atelier with Matteo Gioli of SuperDuper Hats and Liam Maher of Denham to cut, scratch, sample and mix vintage menswear in a demonstration of the DJ Technique Applied to Menswear. Lambert, Maidoh, Gioli and Maher will working toward a creative synthesis of sartorial and workwear influences that reflect each of their individual design obsessions.
Scratching with Sewing Needles: Each day of the event hybrid designs will evolve within a nomadic atelier.
Each day finished pieces will be styled into a focused exhibit of looks inspired by the men who progressed modern music from yesterday's legends like Thelonious Monk
to contemporary pioneers like Yasijn Bey.

"Stone...cold...fox.. a rock, a temperature, an animal. yes of course but together, conjuntos, ay dios mio. Sophia Coppola made the phrase sound so SUAVE, so sexy as it rolled off Harnetts lips and into the smile of a young kirstin dunst, and somehow the phrase stuck with a young girl in san francisco and with her long time friend realized a dream.Stone…cold…fox...did you know fox in spanish is zorro? what an image, this masked crusader in all black, well before the likes of Stan Lee and all those, como se dice vengado? ay si…. avengers. its more than hand picked fabric, more than sexy, more than all the likes in the world, even more than fashion. simply its a feeling when a woman puts on clothes that makes her feel the best version of herself, most sexy, most attractive to the man staring at her from afar. stone…cold…fox...piedra…frio…. zorro"
