"Kinetics" was an exploration into human movement and relating it to illustrative typographical elements. To achieve the footage to show human motion at the level needed we shot with a scientific high-speed camera at 500 frames per second in HD on a green screen for the performance. The subject of break-dancing was used because of its raw beauty of illustrating human motion. Typography is used as an illustrative element in this piece supporting the kinetics of the motion. The typeface Didot was chosen because it combined a modern feel with classic serifs.

Presented by T-world, NEXT was dedicated to the past, present and future of the T-shirt industry. From 4 November to 11 December 2011, the intriguing industrial spaces of Sydney’s Cockatoo Island came alive. Within the cavernous steel confines of the Heavy Machine Shop was NEXT, a vibrant display of the planet's most comprehensive collection of graphic T-shirts.
Whether you’re an advocate for design, graffiti, skate, street or urban, the T-shirt is the singular identifying uniform speaking the voice of youth culture.
Stay tuned for another NEXT event coming soon.

Get out of the box and go skate.
Award winning for Best Documentary and Best Cinematography at the Student Television Network Nationals.
Best Documentary at the eMagine Film Festival.
Best Documentary at the Focus Film Festival.
When I started Freeling a year ago, my main goal was to inspire people to be better than themselves. This film isn't just about skateboarding, it's about being strong enough to go against the current. In order to do great things, you must "get out of the box" and go for it. This film is my way of saying, skateboarding has shaped me into the kid that did that exactly. Enjoy the film and I hope everyone, one day, will see the bigger picture. Thank you.
