Spend a couple minutes in the multiverse and you may find it comfortable enough to participate in your own Parallelostory, which is just hip meta-universe slang for "parallel love story". But remember, this is only one of an infinite number renderings of the same story that your dimensional alternates will have already viewed, are viewing, or will view.
It's been a while since we released a Speedhunters video... but after a few delays, the production of a whole new set of videos is now under way!
This particular video was shot at Ebisu Circuit last August... we had just finished filming the Team Orange Triple Drift film but I had one more shot I wanted to get done.
So I asked Kumakubo if he could mangji drift directly towards me.....
And then circle the camera, before manji-ing again all the way down the straight.... "No problem!" he said and drove down to the other side of the track to start the shot.... now most of the time I wouldn't put myself in the position of having no barrier between me and a race car, but I had absolute confidence in Kumakubo. He is one of the world's top drifters after all! I hope you like this little film.
“What would the world be like from an underground perspective?”
SURFACE is an experimental film, exploring the emotional journey from an underground urban perspective. This 'urban symphony' transforms human actions and street objects into beats that harmoniously compose a grand audio and visual composition. The film emphasizes the ideas of ‘point of contact’, ‘human identity’ and notion of ‘live footprints’.
SURFACE is a part of UND-VIS, a thesis project for MFA Design and Technology, Parsons The New School for Design. UND-VIS : Under Vision Experiment; explores the new visual language of an unconventional perspective from below.
