Eames: The Architect and The Painter

Eames: The Architect and The Painter

This short trailer, which can be watched below, is just the beginning of what’s going to be a very successful film on American designers Charles and Ray Eames. The piece is titled ‘Eames: The Architect and The Painter’ which provides us with a candid view of the inner lives of the two great artists as they helped share their innovation with the world. It’s probably the nearest that we’ve ever got to behind the scenes and looks …

Gilberto Paim & Elizabeth Fonseca, Ceramists

Gilberto Paim & Elizabeth Fonseca, Ceramists

This morning I came across this fantastic but obscure film by Nina Paim documenting Ceramists Gilberto Paim & Elizabeth Fonseca. Now I don’t mean documentation in a verbal way, more of a silent but artistic way, this piece is full of shots of the couple making pottery in their studio/house. Moving from one process to another, intriguing to say the least. You have to bare with it and take into account the amount of …

2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race

2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race

Another exceptional film from Rapha and their crew documenting the 2011 Rapha NW Gentlemen’s Race in Oregon. This course has a distance of 130 miles with various technical terrain on an uphill climb, 10,000 ft of climbing to be exact. Whenever these guys and girls release a film it’s always exciting, I don’t think there’s ever been a time where a series has been consistently produced in such a quality manner. I’m …
