1. March 11 marks the third anniversary of the massive earthquake and tsunami that triggered meltdowns at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility.

    In the aftermath of the disaster, a total of 160,000 people living around the plant were ordered to leave their homes. Many are still struggling to cope with the consequences. Hiroshi Masakura comes from the town of Tomioka, close to the tsunami-stricken nuclear power facility.

    He and his family were among those who were ordered to leave the zone around the plant, and ended up living in temporary housing at an evacuation centre.

    Hiroshi's wife died from an illness he considers related to depression she suffered while living at the centre for evacuees.

    In the video, he talks about his experience.

  2. Watch the full 12 minute film: vimeo.com/108679594

    Presented by Philips TV and Atomic Skis
    Featuring: Pep Fujas, Eric Hjorleifson, Daron Rahlves, and Chris Benchetler
    Music: First Aid Kit: 'My Silver Lining'

    From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.

    Filmed as a partnership between Sweetgrass Productions, Philips TV, and the Swedish Agency Ahlstrand & Wållgren, it's two parts creativity, one part branded content, and a pinch of masochism for good measure. Overall, it's an incredibly unique partnership between our vision of skiing and the color and light technology behind the Philips Ambilight TV.

    Supported by: Atomic, Freefly Systems (MOVI), NiteRider, Golden Alpine Holidays, Alyeska Resort & Talvista Lodge.

    Shot on location at: Golden Alpine Holidays Sentry Lodge, Alyeska Resort, and the Alaskan Wilderness

  3. The Leavenworth Mountain Association invited Jay and 4 other photographers to Leavenworth, Washington, to compete against each other with the final goal of producing a slideshow that highlighted mountain culture. Each photographer had 72 hours to photograph and one day to edit and produce a 2-5 minute slideshow that told a specific story that they had discovered during their visit.

    Jay chose to produce a concept that was inspired by the book, All the Strange Hours written by Loren Eiseley. “Eiseley crafts an absorbing self-portrait of a man who has thought deeply about his place in society as well as humanity’s place in the natural world.” With this idea in mind during the entire 72 hour period allotted for the photographing, Jay focused his camera and lenses on a single local athlete and geologist named Rex Flake. In an amazingly similar fashion to the book Eiseley crafted, Rex travels into the natural world in a somewhat solitary fashion. In what an outsider may view as a lonely mountain bike experience, Rex is an unbelievably social guy with twenty years spent in Leavenworth and a core support group of friends that he hangs out with beyond his solo time on the trails.

    “The Mountain Bike Paradox” quickly became evident to Jay; the accompanying slide show highlights a paradox between the lonely rider and his time with his community. In addition, Jay chose to create a bit of a paradox of his own, showing the viewer images displayed on a screen in a somewhat unconventional way. The more you watch it, the more you will see. Enjoy.

  4. is the story of three man, one dream and 80 years of cycling in Iceland…

    "Rough stuff begins where the tarmac ends"

    "Long before bikes got fat tires, full suspension and carbon fiber frames, the urge to push the pedals off road found its way into the hearts of riders. One group, the UK-based Rough Stuff Fellowship has united such riders for decades, since a time when crossing rugged terrain was truly for the dedicated adventurer. "Horace and the Rough Stuff Fellowship" tells the story of Horace Dall, an astronomer who—80 years ago—single-handedly crossed Iceland's moonlike central desert in his suit and tie, solo, with just a napkin-sized map and the stars as his guide. The film tells Dall's story as well as the like-minded adventurers who came after him, only to find it had (sort of) been done before. The film, with its stunning high-definition shots of the landscape, examines the eternal questions: Why do we go off road? Why leave the comforts of home? Are there any new adventures to be had? The answers of course (if there are any) lie in the hearts of individuals. And if you keep looking, you're already there." COOLHUNTING.COM
