    Eye of the Storm is a winter saga in Iceland. In Iceland there are many kinds of storms. Ice, snow, rain, sand, ash, solar, magnetic, and more.

    Storms are agents of change. While often destructive and unpredictable, they also demonstrate the unyielding power of nature. They reveal nature’s beauty and its hand in creating the landscapes we see today.

    Shot in Iceland between February and March, 2014, I was lucky enough to witness and film the power of an X-class solar flare and coronal mass ejection hitting our atmosphere. The resulting auroras were a sight hard to believe, even in person and seeing it with my very own eyes. Enjoy the film!

    The Making Of: DEDICATED from Corey Rich on Vimeo.

    Director, photographer and Nikon Ambassador Corey Rich was presented with a great, though certainly not simple and straightforward opportunity: Create a short film, and a behind-the-scenes film, about three prolific photographers using the new Nikon D4s in seven locations spanning from San Diego to Snowbird, Utah, to Tampa to the coast of Ireland. The catch? He had only 21 days to do it, and would be using all prototype equipment.

    As a long recognized outdoor and adventure photographer and filmmaker, Rich has relied on “small footprint productions” methods, tactics and equipment to be light and fast and capture still and moving pictures from some of the most remote spots on earth. A longtime proponent of small footprint productions, Rich employed this approach to make DEDICATED.

    "The Making of DEDICATED" shows the behind-the-scenes story of a light-and-fast, small-footprint-production team traveling together halfway around the world over 21 days, pushing themselves to the brink as storytellers, and finding an inspired camaraderie around the shared love of photography.

    Wheels & Waves x Loser Machine from Douglas Guillot on Vimeo.

    In Europe, the winter can seem unending, the time of year when we are
    consigned to dwell interminably in our garages, neon lights may be bright
    but they can never truly replicate sunlight…
    But there is a cure, we have been planning an end of winter trip to the
    Basque country since last summer with our friend Fede at Loser Machine and Bixente, a ride for a Wheels and Waves 2013 reunion.
    A band of brothers, 20 in all. However with the unpredictable
    seasonal conditions we are taking a gamble, but still we have ploughed
    through all conditions before and shall do again.
    The ride is a total of 240km, and we are planning it for June, so it should
    be perfect riding : A combination of beautiful nature and a rare
    countryside found in these traditional lands, far from the polluted towns
    and cities that so many of us are forced to call home. Mountains are found
    in abundance as are the twists on the long empty stretches of road, which
    are themselves much like racing circuits, in short, a dreamlike wonderland.
    Anybody who loves bikes will get that longed for Endorphin rush and a
    heavenly bike connection.

    L’hiver est long en Europe, la période ou nous restons calfeutrés dans nos
    garages parait interminable, les néons ne remplaceront jamais le soleil…
    Nous avions cependant planifié à la fin de l’été dernier avec nôtre ami Fede de Loser Machine et Bixente, un ride au pays Basque à la fin de l’hiver, ayant pour but de faire un repérage pour Wheels & Waves
    2013.
    Nous avons réuni un groupe d’amis, une vingtaine au total, les conditions
    météos étant difficilement prévisibles en cette saisonnous prenions un certain risque, nous avons rencontré à peu près tout ce que
    l’on peut imaginer en matière de météo.
    le ride de 240Km que nous allons vous proposer en Juin est quasiment parfait à mes yeux, beaucoup de nature, peu d’agglomérations,de la montagne, des virages par milliers, des route côtières semblables à
    des circuits, bref un terrain de jeu sensationnel ou chacun trouvera l’endorphine vitale, la justification même de la moto.
    Vivement Juin.

    ——————————-
    Hi James
    Received my Bryston Mini T speakers the other day. Bravo! … Cheers! … Love them! You Bryston guys really know how to make good music! The music is all there, and for the money, makes other speaker companies look silly for what they ask.
    Cheers, ”

    Allison Johnson: We Have Enough Companies Like Apple from 99U on Vimeo.

    There are only a few people who have worked directly under Steve Jobs, and Allison Johnson is one of those people. The former head of marketing at Apple, Johnson oversaw the launch of the company’s hallmark products like the iPhone and its famous campaigns like “Mac vs. PC” and “There’s an app for that.”

    In this interview with Behance’s Scott Belsky, Johnson shares stories from her time at Apple, emphasizes authenticity in business, and reveals how we can find a balance between launching a polished product (like Apple) versus shipping fast for feedback (like Google).
    About Allison Johnson
    Allison is the founder of West, a new kind of strategy and creative accelerator based in San Francisco focused on introducing new companies, products and ideas to the world. Prior to West, she ran marketing at Apple for six-plus years reporting to Steve, where she was responsible for launching some of the most iconic products and campaigns of our time.

    A self-professed revolutionary, she’s found herself at the center of some of the industry’s most historic turns including IBM’s embrace of the internet era with e-business, Netscape’s pivot from browser to enterprise software purveyor, HP’s reinvention under Carly Fiorina, and the launch of the iPhone and iPad.

    THE ‘34 from Noisy Brigade on Vimeo.

    A short story on Rhys Gilberts 1934 Ford Tudor.

    After a 5am start, one Saturday morning. My brother Josh and I drove to meet Rhys in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia.

    We started out on the wrong side of the perfect day we had thought of, with our planned destination for breakfast not being open when we arrived at 7am and not a glimpse of sunshine in sight. We spent some time in the car park setting up our gear only for our breakfast place to open as we pulled away to start filming.

    Not thirty seconds after driving away from the service station we were greeted with the wailing of police sirens as the Tudor was pulled over to the side of the road, not a bad start. No breakfast and now the threat of an unroadworthy certificate on the Tudor. Luckily the police officer appreciated the work that Rhys had undertaken and let us go on our merry way, but warned us not to be caught again.

    We then continued to battle wind, rain and fog as we tried to make a good day from a bad start. We drove out to the base of Mt Macedon filming along the way and trying to make the most of our conditions. We got to the first stop point and took some photos whilst Rhys left his lights on… guess you knew where i was going with that. A roll start ensued and off we went again. Half way back into town we pulled over and I hopped in with Rhys and took a drive to our lunch destination, the Holgate Brewery.

    Driving in this car can only be described as raw, fun and exciting. You can hear every little movement and noise the car makes. The wind blew through small areas in the side windows and the motor purred along making this one great car to ride in. The experience was a great one, whilst not as polished as some other cars I have been in these factors made this one all that more fun.

    We pulled into the Holgate Brewery and took comfort in the fact that some cold beers and a big lunch were about to help finish off what was a fantastic morning in the end. Beer with Banana in it was great, followed by a venison burger with hand cut chips. Stomachs and camera card full we finalised our catch up and rolled out of Woodend happy that we may have achieved what we had planned.

    This short is a capture of this moment in time, I hope it serves the moment well.

    Commonly referred to as the “Boneyard,” the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., contains about 5,000 retired military aircraft throughout 2,600 acres. Crews at the Boneyard preserve aircraft for possible future use, pull aircraft parts to supply to the field, and perform depot-level maintenance and aircraft regeneration in support of Air Force operations.
