Now here is a film to look forward too. Surfwise is a documentary about Surfer Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz by director Doug Pray.
The film premiered at the 2007 Toronto International film Festival and is due to be released in May 2008.

Here is the content summary from the Apple trailer website:

“Like many American outsider-adventurers, Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz set out to realize a utopian dream. Abandoning a successful medical practice, he sought self-fulfillment by taking up the nomadic life of a surfer. But unlike other American searchers like Thoreau or Kerouac, Paskowitz took his wife and nine children along for the ride, all eleven of them living in a 24 foot camper. Together, they lived a life that would be unfathomable to most, but enviable to anyone who ever relinquished their dreams to a straight job. The Paskowitz Family proved that America may be running out of frontiers, but it hasn’t run out of frontiersman. “

Here is the trailer:

Adidas: New Originals Campaign*

10 03 2008

adidas have launched a new set of online, print and tv related campaign elements for their 2008 collection of ORIGINALS clothing. Things kicked off with a fully “animated” ad by 180 Amsterdam featuring Adi Dassler the founder of adidas (see below).

Here is the official release:

adidas is launching its first global campaign for Adidas Originals lifestyle brand. Developed by 180, the campaign rallies round a series of web videos of people from art, music and athletics.The first effort, which launches this week, spotlights Adidas’ founder, Adi Dassler, in his workshop in Germany. This is also the first time in the company’s 60-year history that its founder has been brought to the fore in adidas advertising.

The campaign is supported by print, TV, in-cinema and web ads leading consumers to the microsite within adidas.com. Pierre Wendling, 180’s digital director, explains that the agency didn’t employ digital animation to resurrect Dassler. Rather, Wendling and his team recreated Dassler’s office in miniature, down to scale model versions of his desk, furniture, tools, and accessories, with ambient street sounds, and radio playing songs of the day in the background.

The originals tend to have a retro feel. The logo is not the three-stripe symbol for adidas Performance, but the adidas trefoil logo introduced in 1971.
 
He adds that the first of five films won’t be product-focused, while the rest will, each touting the new Originals apparel line.One of the forthcoming films in the series, “Sounds of the City,” will tout a range of Adidas Originals product while highlighting reggae from Jamaica; the Motown sound; Memphis, and New Orleans.Each film ends with the Adidas trefoil transforming into a video sphere on which films about the featured artists and athletes are arrayed, with the “Celebrate Originality” theme

Here are some of the campaign elements…

Quentin Tarantino: Hellride*

2 02 2008

Found this on Affenheimtheater. It’s the poster art for Quentin Tarantino’s new production: Hellride. The poster is really cool!

Here is a quick description of the plot from firstshowing.net
“In Hell Ride, two rival biker gangs, the Victors and the Six-Six-Sixers, have been at war for years. On July 4th, 1976 the Six-Six-Sixers kill and burn the Victors’ president’s wife, now 32 years later they’re getting revenge. The Victors are headed up by the gang’s president, Pistolero (Larry Bishop, who played the “asshole on the elbow” guy in Kill Boll Vol. 2), The Gent (Michael Madsen, who played Budd in Kill Bill Vol. 2), and recently added member Comanche (Eric Balfour). The Six-Six-Sixers is lead by Billy Wings (Vinnie Jones), a ruthless biker who uses an air powered crossbow that’s as badass as Anton Chigurh’s cattle stun gun in No Country for Old Men. “
