Last night COMUNE hosted “Everything Went Black”, a collection of work from photographer Jimmy Fontaine. In case you don’t know of Jimmy, his roots branch back to shooting snowboarding… but today he is living out in New York City making a name for himself shooting fashion/portraits/lifestyles for publications such as Nylon, Elle, Spin, XXL…. you get the idea. It’s great to see someone who started in the snow industry, branch out and make a name for themselves on a different level. More photos from the night at COMUNE’s headquarter’s in Costa Mesa, CA after the jump.

COMUNE Teaser: Number 2

This is the second teaser the COMUNE has put out for their avant-garde snowboard film, “Black Holes and Invisible Forces Bending Time Through Particle Deformation Creating Infinite Freedom in the Garden On The Moon.”…. or as I like to call it, BHIFBTTPDCIFGM. Their first teaser seemed to bring up a lot of hate since it only featured a few snowboard clips. Well this one, titled “Motel Jezebel” by Andrew Kuykendall, has none. Which will probably make kids even more pissed off. But I say good for COMUNE, they are obviously doing something different and running with it. Stay tuned for the third teaser.

COMUNE: Snowboard Movie

COMUNE recently released a teaser of their avant-garde snowboard film, “Black Holes and Invisible Forces Bending Time Through Particle Deformation Creating Infinite Freedom in the Garden On The Moon.” Yes that is the title… if I made that into an acronym is would still be damn long, BHIFBTTPDCIFGM. Incredible. This teaser (edited by Corey Smith & Ryan Scardigli, titled “Burn the Witch”) is the first in a series they will be releasing leading up to the premiere of their full-length film in October, 2010. And of course COMUNE is going to go completely outside the box with this one, featuring not only snowboarding, but multiple edits from different contributing artists as part of their Drop City project. You are in for a treat.

Love their song choice for this teaser, “My Body’s a Zombie for You” by Dead Man’s Bones. If you haven’t heard of them check out their other songs as well. Good stuff.
