    Built from an old Renault Garage in the center of Paris, near Place de la Bastille, Alain Ducasse's new chocolate factory was created with the willingness to get back to the roots of chocolate making : a careful, slow and patient work, craftsmanship and machines being as one. This short film gives us a vision of chocolate like we never see it, rough and sensual at the same time. Director : Simon Pénochet Director of photography : Yann Tribolle Producer : Pierre Baussaron Production company : Blast production Music: Flairs / Third side record

      In honor of the United Arab Emirates’ 40th anniversary, Obscura created a series of elaborate projections that illuminated two culturally significant landmarks: the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, and the historic Al Jahili Fort in the oasis city of Al Ain. Native botanicals, architectural details of the mosque, and growing vines that replicated design motifs in the building covered the façade and reached to the tops of four minarets.

        Alain Ducasse's restaurant at the Plaza Athénée has just re-opened. The Chef tells a more personal and radical story, following a path he initiated twenty-five years ago. He introduces a cuisine of naturality, that revolves around three key elements: fish, vegetables and cereals. A healthier, more sustainable and environmentally-conscious approach.

My goal was simply to explore and look for interesting unique sceneries around the UAE, and capture it's beauty with time-lapse photography. Winter season plays a big part of my journey, as it's the best time to chase visible fluffy clouds with a true blue sky that only exist to the human eye at this time of the year. I took around 300,000 images and traveled some 4000kms going around the cities of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. I ended up going more than once on few locations which mostly I searched the coordinates online. There's some tiny little setbacks like wrong coordinates, clouds disappearance, being turned down to take photos (after a 2 hour drive), miscalculated driving time, sets of glowing eyes in the mountain, some wild animal noise in the dark (well it's not really a hindrance, but it is abit alarming) and few unnecessary technical issues, which is typically part of trying out and learning something new :) The whole trip was very exhausting and time consuming, but it's all worth it in the end. I've seen so many beautiful places here in the UAE, plus I enjoyed all the long drives as well as being close to nature and far away from city for awhile. I'm hoping to find more time and discover new places and capture it again on video :) A big thanks to Ryan Scully, a music composer based in New York for taking the time producing the original score. http://soundcloud.com/prscully20 Gears: Canon 7D Canon EF-S 15-85mm IS USM lens Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly (http://dynamicperception.com) I can never do time-lapse without this :) Aluratek Universal 12V battery Manfrotto 055CX Pro3 tripod legs Some off-the-shelf LED flood lights For more info & map locations: http://artlifeflip.net Follow Facebook: http://facebook.com/​artlifeflip

                Alain Goikoetxea has been skating for Volcom since '98. In order to celebrate these 15 years of loyalty, he put together a full online video part with footage he's been gathering over the last few years. For those who don't know Alain, he is born and raised in the Basque Country and lives right up the hill from the famous La Kantera skatepark in Algorta, where he shreds almost every day and after all these years of skating it, still finds new lines and tricks that have never been done before. Alain is one of those guys where age doesn't affect his progression, style and control. Skateboarding is a natural thing for him. Alain's gnarboots never stop amazing us.
