    Elgin Park is a lot of things: a 1950’s utopia, a fantastical world, and an optical illusion. Artist Michael Paul Smith’s imaginative town – composed entirely of miniatures – delighted audiences worldwide when his photo series went viral. For the first time, the documentary Elgin Park dives into the life of this charming, reclusive artist to reveal the dark inspiration behind his work.

  4. RAW METROPOLIS is a short documentary that explores how Dubai as a future city is finding it's identity through the stylistic expressions of it's inhabitants and visitors. Written and directed by Amirah Tajdin of Seven Thirty Films, this series of video portraits make up a film that documents the influence of street style, amidst the vistas of one of the world's newest urban centers, the city of Dubai.

    The portraits were filmed during Sole DXB, that took place over two days in November 2014 - the regions leading annual lifestyle and street culture event which serves to expose all facets of the city's growing urban culture through
    footwear, fashion and street art. It was filmed at the Dubai Design District which served as the event's backdrop.

    Guests of the festival, the festivals founders and festival revelers are all featured in a series of portrait interviews set in the backseat of a car that weaves through geometrically abstract and stylised shots of cityscapes, spaces and buildings that are juxtaposed against the interviewees who give their take on what street culture, style, life & technology means to and for them.

  5. For the past several years, Ford Racing, RTR and Vaughn Gittin Jr. have come to St. Louis Auto Show to do a drift demonstration of the new model mustangs. This year, Gittin also was able to demo the new Ford Raptor F150 and a fully caged RTR 2015 mustang.

    The cars looked great and seem to be extremely good for drifting.

    Thanks to RTR and Vaughn Gittin Jr. for putting on a great show!

    This was the first time filming with the Red Epic, can't wait to see what else I can crank out of it!

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.
