From a short daytrip to the lower parts of the beautiful Nea river in Selbu, Norway with my sea kayak. Good grassy put-in spot at a small camping site, as seen in the timelapse in the beginning. You can paddle quite a bit upstream, until the current gets too fast, and there is definitely a chance of seeing the mysterious and strange beaver and catching some playful trout.
Good site to camp as well, there are cheap cabins with the key in the door, just walk right in and pay when the owner comes by.
This is my second test filming with the GoPro mounted to the tip of the kayak. In the first test you could see at little of the kayak, so this time I flipped the GoPro upside down to get it closer to the water, and controlling it via WiFi and the GoPro app on iphone, resulting in pretty short battery life, and of course, not options for selfies or other changes of angles, without getting out of the kayak.
I think it turned out pretty cool, what you see is raw from the camera, no filtering or adjusting of the colors at all. Unfortunately at bit is lost in the rendering to H264 and YouTubes prosessing.
Graffiti represents an extremely young global underground subculture, it's the root of modern guerilla marketing and the core inspiration behind street art. This episode of "Crack and Shine" highlights Katsu, a graffiti vandal active in NYC. Katsu's campaign is unique within the graffiti world because while most vandals influence with traditional street tagging and murals, Katsu uses deeper conceptual strategies to promote the movement.
The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world...
...so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it's unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.

A good friend of mine Vadim Akimenko of the future Akimenko Meats is a butcher who has a very intense passion for what he does. At the end of this process, of a 211 pound pig only 1 pound of meat was thrown away. It went on to feed quite a lot of people.
