The Holstee Manifesto is a call to action to live a life full of intention, creativity, passion, and community.
The LifeCycle Film came about as a desire to bring the energy and passion behind the Manifesto to life through something we love--biking. As we seek to live mindful lifestyles that leave a positive impact on the people and world around us, biking has become a passion that is much more than a transportation alternative. It is a way of fully experiencing the city we love and all of its details.
This Film is a celebration. It is a celebration of gatherings, of diversity, of life, and of the beauty of shared experience. We hope you enjoy.

Among the choices of bike shops across Manhattan and Brooklyn, 718 Cyclery stands out for their unique approach to the customer and the bike they lovingly create for them. This is the Inverted Bike Shop.
We were honored to have our film selected in the official line up of the New York 2012 Bicycle Film Festival (bicyclefilmfestival.com).
A metaphorical short film about bikes, movement, freedom and love. Every day mind tries to get the better of heart. Space and time have always existed and we can’t stop them. Throught the movement we discover ourself. Speed is like curiosity. A crash between two bodies. To remember us that we are not alone.
The video has been realised between Montréal and London. It combines 2d and 3d motion graphics and video footages.
Main tools: Adobe AI, PS, AE; Apple FCP; Maxon C4D; Sony Ex1-Cam.
