Maya Erickson’s Black Sesame Dessert
Film by Director Jennifer Davick and Executive Producer Amy Yvonne Yu
DP Devin Whetstone | Story by Writer Tanner Latham | Post-Production by Mission Film & Design
Stylized, Sexy, Provocative and Decadent. Everything You Would Expect from a Grandmother’s Recipe.
At 13 years old, Maya Erickson was working in a professional kitchen, tasked primarily with filling cookies and wrapping tuiles. She shrugs this detail off now, as if it’s simply a throwaway line unworthy of her bio. As if most newly-turned teenagers must surely have been like her—resisting the temptation to toggle among their screens and choosing, instead, a highly disciplined path.
It is with this kind of casual, unassuming tone that this wunderkind (now she’s in her mid-20s), pastry chef describes her Black Sesame Ice Cream with Black Sesame Pudding, a dessert rooted in her former chef’s grandmother’s poppy seed pudding recipe yet presented with a stylized, sexy and provocative manner that’s as arresting and mood-evoking visually as it is to the palate.
Maya created this dessert while working as the pastry chef at Lazy Bear, a San Francisco restaurant that grew from the cult-like following of an underground supper club and whose own chef/owner David Barzelay recently received the nod as a 2016 Food and Wine Best New Chef.
To complement the ice cream and pudding, Maya’s Black Sesame dessert features cassis jam, cassis pate de fruit, dehydrated devil’s food cake, forbidden rice pudding and a light dusting of charcoal. This creation—with its colors and flavors and textures—makes you question what you think you know about food. This is the epitome of Maya’s gift to anyone lucky enough to receive it—a delicately plated, understated, experiential dessert that decadently performs.

behind the scenes
A surf film I directed for Reef a few years back. Just realized I did have the master online, so decided I would post. Such an amazing collaboration with Mark Tesi, the Creative Director that I Directed this alongside. Shot on location in Tahiti, South Africa, Australia, Indonesia, and Bali, the film was inspired by me sitting digging way too deep into Jaques Cousteau documentaries from the 60’s… hence the creative direction and sound sampling.

The Czech Republic’s second city was central to European design before falling into a troubled 20th-century sleep. Revival came thanks to research investment but its future may lie in its design heritage.

I was commissioned to make a film and shoot a set of images by ESPN for Wilson, to show the manufacturing process of their tennis balls for the US Open. We flew to the factory, shot the film and stills in one day then flew home. Its an amazingly complex manufacture, requiring 24 different processes to make the final ball. It was hot, loud and the people who worked there, worked fast. So much beauty in each stage. I love the mechanics of how things are made, it fills me with great pleasure. I hope you enjoy the film.
The day I first set foot on Mount Seymour, I knew it would have a lasting profound impact on me. Located on Vancouver’s North Shore, the mountain looks down over the vibrant and pulsing city to the South, while the Coast Mountains stretch endlessly to the North. For 3 years, I returned on and off to seek inspiration, and to shoot as much timelapse as possible. Every time, I found a new and unique display of magic. I never tire of seeing the lights, the colours, the sunrise, the sunset, and just sitting back at peace above the world. This is the culmination of years of practice, countless pounds of equipment carried, many sleepless nights, and 100s of hours of editing. Enjoy!

Marking the biggest shake-up in the survey’s nine-year history, Monocle’s 2015 Quality of Life survey awards Tokyo the number one city to call home. Rising from second place in 2014, the Japanese capital’s defining paradox – its heart-stopping size and concurrent feeling of peace and quiet – helped it claim the crown.

Terraforming imagines a world where a crystal planet has been discovered in the galaxy. It follows a young cartographer’s journey to the planet. Paying homage to 1960’s sci-fi classics with bold projections of modernism in space.
The first ever object to be designed by man 1.7 million years ago was a flint hand axe. The project juxtaposes the flint hand axe with Swarovski’s latest crystal technology; Xero chaton, the smallest precision cut crystals in the world measuring 0.6mm in diameter, smaller than a grain of sand.

I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time on Hawaii growing up. My most recent trip there I brought along my camera gear and a quadcopter. It was great to get a birds-eye view of the changing landscapes around the island.

Nixon brings together larger-than-life surf legends Herbie and Nathan Fletcher for a road trip down memory lane in a new short film entitled Peninsula South, where the father and son team head down to Baja and revisit some old haunts from previous adventures. Director Riley Blakeway captures Herbie’s pioneering spirit and the close-knit relationship he has built with his son Nathan as they set out on an expedition they’ve not made together in over twenty years, reignites both their love for Baja and their deep appreciation for one another. By the late 60s, Herbie had already begun exploring Baja in search of un-crowded lineups and adventure. As his life moved forward, he built a family who share his love of travel, and who have joined him countless times to explore the fickle southern peninsula. On this latest mission, Nathan discusses his father’s contagious, childlike enthusiasm for surfing and life, and shares how he hopes to pass those ideals down to the next Fletcher generation.

This film is a collection of audiovisual moments and memories of a 3-week railway journey through Japan in 2015. We were whizzing through the country with the Shinkansen visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima and Kyoto as well as lots of wonderful little places along the way, meeting the most friendly people and experiencing a culture that somehow balances its rich tradition with a very futuristic present.

This video was shot over a 5 day trip to Tokyo in January 2016.
It was my first time visiting Japan, a place I had always wanted to see. With a population of 35 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world. Due to this, I soon realised how lively and energetic this city really is.
I decided to take my camera and explore this fascinating city so rich in culture, tradition and innovation.
