There’s a small stretch of soil north of the Rio Grande river that’s still part of the United States, but exists below the Mexican border wall. The Atlantic went inside this no-man’s-land to uncover what life is like in a place that feels like not-quite America, but not-quite Mexico.
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.

Outspoken, in demand and still at the top of his game, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld talks to Monocle’s editor in chief Tyler Brûlé about the industry, the media and why Berlin isn’t as good as it used to be.

The project began with the passion of craftsmen of Takaoka Traditional Industry Youth Association to bring excitement to their hometown, Takaoka. The short film illustrates dignity and anxiety of craftsmanship in local areas in Japan. It aims to spread the reality of Japanese craftsmen to the rest of the world and to let people know about Takaoka, the city of Japanese traditional arts and crafts. The story is about a couple, a sissy husband Takashi and a devoted wife, Suzu.

Far away from the surf business industry and competitions, Harrison was able to make a living out of his passion; surfing became his lifestyle. Every day, he drives alone for hundreds of miles and braves some of the most dangerous wildlife in the world, seeking the wave he would be the only one to ride. See his spiritual dialogue with the ocean.

My DJI Mavic review is at gopb.co/mavic
This was taken from a short flight whilst out Whale watching with my DJI Mavic Pro, only one battery was used. Taking off and landing from a small speedboat was challenging with the IMU and with take off and landing but the shots were worth it.
I was mainly out to take photos (I have posted those and ones of the Aurora on Flickr here: flickr.com/photos/philipbloom/albums/72157676834210515)
There is so little light right now in Tromso, Norway where I filmed this. The sun doesn’t make it fully over the horizon so you get light for a couple of hours and that light isn’t strong. Not idea for the Mavic but I shot in 2.7K 25p at ISO 200, 1/50th second for the most part. Profile was preset off, sharpness -1, contrast 0, saturation, 0

For the PRADA 2012 FW Men show, AMO designed a set inspired by palaces of power and grand interiors.
Grand Interior – Void
FW Man 2012
The audience is distributed along the perimeter of the room.
The central void is occupied by a carpet of great extension, measuring 20X35m, assembled with pieces of moquette of different pile lengths and colored in red, white and black. Eleven geometric black flower shapes inspired by modernist rug designs are equally distributed over the red surface. The border of the carpet is defined by a rigid combination of black and white geometries.
Six monumental chandeliers realized with 300 neon tubes each brighten the central scene. Together with the carpet they evoke the grandeur of a palace.
The audience sits in the dark witnessing the spectacle of the show where men walk orderly through the vast interior as if following a secret script.
A film about purpose in life, seen through the eyes of a Buddhist monk and his son.

All shots around the local children at the pier were filmed with my second Phantom fitted with prop guards for extra caution.
This was shot on my holiday (yes my passion is also my job!) alongside some stuff for my GH4 review. Koh Yao Noi is one of the least developed islands in Thailand despite being right in the middle of the most touristic bay there. It’s a little haven of real Thailand with just 18km of roads.
Please read the in depth blog post linked at the top if you are interested in knowing more about what it’s like to fly the Phantom 2 or any part of this film. Here is a little bit of tech info anyway!

Gatlin Elms “For we never knew your beauty”
Living in San Francisco, Ethan felt the need to get out and confront himself to the mountains. Impressively brave and graceful, he scales the legendary Yosemite cliffs in California with his bare hands. Inherent in his conquest of new routes is a desire to reach a higher physical and spiritual level.
Barbicania is a feature-length film capturing a month-long immersion in the life of the Barbican Centre and Estate in London, one of the most representative achievements of brutalist architecture.
The film, built as a personal diary, recounts on a daily basis what the directors duo has discovered during their urban trip from the top floors of the towers to the underground levels of the art centre.
Barbicania invites you to discover the personalities, lifestyle and architectural landscapes that make the Barbican so special. Drawing an intimate human map of the place, the film questions the durability of this utopia of the 50s.
“An original and clever cinematographic language which deeply innovates the architecture representation.” Icon Design
“Beka & Lemoine animate the fortress and turn the darkest building of London into a series of colourful short stories.” L’Espresso
“An intimate and lively filmic map of Barbican’s Brutalist masterpiece.” Domus
More information on the project:
In a new, predatory ice age, two brothers search for a place to call home.
As the oldest of three brothers, I got an early start at directing – ordering my brothers Ethan and Noah in fierce make-believe sword fights in our basement. In many ways, this film is an extension of those childhood adventures: it is a story of two brothers in battle against a harsh new world, and it stars my youngest brother Noah.
Over the last few years, I’ve watched Noah grow up. No longer just my kid brother, he is now one of my best friends. At its core, this is a film that imagines what it takes to grow up in a dangerous and lawless world. The story centers on a boy who still remembers what life used to be like before everything turned to ice – a childhood of birthday parties and movies and after-school cartoons. As Jem clings to his childhood, the responsibility for their lives falls to Cody, the older brother. He stays awake each night, rifle in hand, making sure they survive to see the next morning.
This is a film about a younger brother forced to grow up faster than he wants to, and an older brother who will do anything to protect the brother he loves.

When asked to build housing for 100 families in Chile ten years ago, Alejandro Aravena looked to an unusual inspiration: the wisdom of favelas and slums. Rather than building a large building with small units, he built flexible half-homes that each family could expand on. It was a complex problem, but with a simple solution — one that he arrived at by working with the families themselves. With a chalkboard and beautiful images of his designs, Aravena walks us through three projects where clever rethinking led to beautiful design with great benefit.

Still Life: Ron Mueck at Work – Short Edition, de Gautier Deblonde, 2013.
Un film inédit de Gautier Deblonde réalisé avec le soutien de la Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain et présenté en exclusivité dans l’exposition Ron Mueck.
Vivant à Londres, Ron Mueck a exposé dans les musées du monde entier, au Japon, en Australie, en Nouvelle Zélande et au Mexique. Son exposition à la Fondation Cartier est un événement d’autant plus exceptionnel que les opportunités de voir ses œuvres sont extrêmement rares. Travaillant lentement dans son atelier londonien, il fait du temps un élément privilégié de sa création. Ses figures humaines, réalistes à l’excès, mais qui jouent sur des changements d’échelle surprenants, demeurent aussi éloignées du naturalisme académique que du pop art ou de l’hyperréalisme.
Based in London, Ron Mueck has had highly acclaimed exhibitions around the world from Japan to Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, but shows of his new work in Europe have not been frequent occurrences. Mueck works slowly in his small North London studio, making time itself an important element in his creative process. His human figures are meticulously detailed, with surprising changes of scale that place them as far from academic realism as they are from pop art or hyperrealism.
