Human beings don’t always make rational decisions. But making irrational decisions is precisely what makes us human. These decisions, based on an impulse or a feeling, often lead us to those perfect moments when it feels great to be alive.
"The Beauty of the Irrational" follows Ryan Sandes, a South African Ultra-Runner, as he returns to the Fish River Canyon to run the 5 day, 84km, Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail in the fastest time possible.
He completed the run, self-supported, in amazing time of 6h57min!

During a once in a lifetime trip to Southern India, we had the chance to capture some sights and sounds while we made our way from Chennai to Pondicherry on motorbikes. The trip was overwhelming and a truly eye opening experience. We at VBF knew that it would be very difficult to re-create on film the actual experience of being in India on the streets with thousands of cars, tuk-tuk's, cows, goats, and dogs. The visuals, sounds, and smells all created a sensory overload situation that can only be experienced by being there, but hopefully this film gives you a sense of what it was like to be immersed in the surroundings and experience the amazing places along the coast of Southern India.

With Adrian in town for only a few days, we convinced him to take some time out of his busy schedule and come racing with us. All we had to do was decide where…
Finding a sweet open road where you’re not stuck behind traffic or dodging dogs ain’t always easy, but at the Temple we like to think outside the box. The new Benoa toll road is ready, but not open yet, so we managed to sneak in there like a couple of bandits and tear it up on the fresh tarmac. Suddenly we had the opportunity every rider dreams of in Bali, and we had it all to ourselves.
