1. Ghosts of the Arctic was the type of passion project that dreams are made of. Our goal was to venture out into the beautiful frozen expanse of Svalbard, in winter, to search and document polar bears.

    Great write up with loads of info at: nofilmschool.com/2017/08/ghosts-arctic-4k-cold-weather-film-shoot

    During the shoot we experienced temperatures that were never warmer than -20ºC and frequently plummeted down as low as -30ºC + wind chill factor.

    Many days we drove over two hundred kilometres on our snow mobiles in very difficult terrain and conditions as we searched for wildlife. We experienced three cases of first and second degree frostbite during the filming as well as a lot of failed equipment as a result of the extreme cold. Each day involved 14-16 hours in the field.

    We had batteries that would lose their charge in mere minutes, drones that wouldn't power up and fly, cameras that wouldn't turn on, steady-cams that would not remain steady, HDMI cables that became brittle and snapped in the cold, frozen audio equipment, broken LCD mounts, broken down snow mobiles and more. We existed on a diet of freeze dried cod and pasta washed down with tepid coffee and the occasional frozen mars bar.

    But in spite of the conditions, it was one of the most rewarding shoots we have all been involved in.

    Absolutely no wildlife was interfered with in any way shape or form during the filming and everything you see is totally natural behaviour.

  2. A JOURNEY THROUGH SOUTHERN AFRICA'S FORGOTTEN MOUNTAINS

    There are few roads in Lesotho. There are even fewer mountain bikers. Here the horse is supreme and the myriad horse trails that have been carved through its steep and rugged mountains are its lifeblood. Horsemen ply these trails, just as they have for generations, riding between villages that have remained unchanged over centuries. Amidst this scene frozen in time is Isaac, a twenty-two year old horseman who is bridging the gap between old and new. For a week in April 2017, Isaac - or Leputhing Molapo to use his Basotho name - rode a 180 Kilometre traverse of the mountains of his home country. It was a ride like his father had done before him, but this time he was leading two mountain bikers.

    Following Isaac were Canadian freerider Kevin Landry and Swiss ex-downhill racer Claudio Caluori, both embarking on a journey that will showcase the beautiful unknown landscapes of this small country. Riding only horse trails, it’s a journey laden with physical challenges for all, but it’s a journey that will cement friendships between a traditional blanket-wearing horseman and two state-of-the-art bike-wielding mountain bikers.
    For two pioneering mountain bikers this ride is the most adventurous undertaking they have ever made. For one horseman, its a ride that heralds a new dawn.

    HAVE A GOOD ONE conceived and co-ordinated this unique adventure. In April 2017 they travelled to Lesotho and working with Sky Adventures to provide support and logistics, they set out to document this journey and the unique chapter in Lesotho’s history it represents. Driven by their passion to create a unique film, Tobias Steinigeweg and Maximilian Stolarow shared the rocky trails and high mountain passes and abandoned trading post accommodations with the riders.

    Following The Horsemen is a film that not only highlights the potential of Lesotho as a new adventure destination, but also provides an invaluable glimpse into its heritage through the country’s iconic horsemen.

  3. You can view each looping gif here:

    Browsing on internet I found a few people that are keeping themselves busy with personal projects on a daily basis. Every day they're able to post something online.
    Looking at them I always thought I couldn't make it: too busy with my daily job in the studio, too busy at home with my family.
    But I tried.
    And I managed to do it. I just had to work against the clock.

    GastaLoops is a 100 day design project with some "auto inflicted rules", strong limitations that are able to fuel the creativity. The gifs had to be:
    50 frames long
    with 3 flat colours (ivory, coral, black)
    looping

    Some of the GastaLoops I have done are better than others. Some are technically really simple. Some are boring.
    But I am really happy that I manage to keep up for 100 days, with no missing days.

    I am now actively trying to do an exhibition with my loops. I think it could be visually interesting to see all of them looping together in a gallery.

    For the moment, I put all the loops together in this video, enjoy!

  4. Common Ground - A Finisterre Film by Luke Pilbeam
    Featuring - Easkey Britton, Tom Kay, Sandy Kerr, Noah Lane, Fergal Smith and Matt Smith
    Produced by - David Gray, Tom Kay and Matt Smith
    Music by - Federico Durand

    November saw the team gather for the first time deep in NW Ireland. For some this was the first meet, for others a welcome reunion of familiar faces. We walked far, ate well, surfed hard and lived for a while, sharing stories. Every one of us had been introduced to the sea by our parents, be they surfers, farmers, teachers or sailors. The conversation moved onto how it had shaped our lives, and shed light on what may lie in our futures.

    A lot went on in 2016 for the Finisterre Ambassadors. Fergal Smith stood as a candidate in last year’s Irish General Election and worked up on the Moy Hill Community Farm, showing us how to reconnect to the land. Noah Lane continued to push the boundaries of cold water surfing, winning the Wave of the Winter. Our team manager Matt Smith co-founded Backwash, a print anthology about surf and culture, as well as Hometree, an Irish re-forestation initiative. Easkey Britton finished her doctorate and founded Waves of Freedom. Sam Bleakley also finished his PhD, flying to all corners of the globe using surfing to affect change and deliver a positive social impact. Newcomer Sandy Kerr got engaged to his childhood sweetheart Rachel, bought a house and is spreading the word of surf and healthy living to younger generations in the North East.

    We left with a further shared sense of purpose and common ground, excited to see where our paths take us in 2017 and beyond.
