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.

Worth Checking Out: Modern Collective

Some of the guys that I work with were watching this movie, Modern Collective, at lunch today, so I decided to sit back and take a look for myself. I’m not going to lie, I don’t know much about surfing, and I normally wouldn’t just sit down and watch a surf video. But I loved it, it was extremely well filmed and put together…. especially as far as titles, filler shots, and creative direction. It is available on itunes, and if you are into filming, editing, or surfing I suggest you take a look… It is definitely worth checking out.
