Good Books “Metamorphosis””, directed by Buck.

We dug through the darkest recesses of our minds and studio to create original music and sound design for this Buck masterpiece. Working with squirming, analog-tape leeches, moaning coeds, screaming guitar goats, and brain-exploding psychedelia, we were certainly in our element. Plus, it’s always fun to rock out and get a little weird for a good cause! - from Vimeo.

Deak Starkiller vs Darth Vader”, by Ralph McQuarrie.

"I just did my best to depict what I thought the film should look like, I really liked the idea. I didn’t think the film would ever get made. My impression was it was too expensive. There wouldn’t be enough of an audience. It’s just too complicated. But George knew a lot of things that I didn’t know."

Birdmen: The Original Dream Of Flight (Trailer)”, directed by Matt Sheridan.

Birdmen is a documentary film about the dream of human flight becoming reality. For millennia, humans have looked to the sky and dreamed of arcing through the air, like birds. And now, after hundreds of thousands of years, humans can fly. It is dangerous, deadly, and requires years of training, but a select few have committed their lives to the pursuit of the purest form of human flight: Wingsuit BASE Jumping.

'Birdmen' follows the dream of human flight, from its inception in ancient times to the modern world. What started with stuntmen hurling themselves to their death from objects such as the Eiffel Tower has become a respected extreme sport in which athletes zoom through the mountains at 150mph, just inches from trees and cliff faces.

During the film, professional wingsuit pilots Ellen Brennan, Mike Steen, and Matt Gerdes escort you through the inspiring yet tragic history of their ancestral birdmen and then show you the cutting edge of human flight in the year 2012. Matt, Mike, and Ellen are some of the most talented wingsuit pilots in the world – during the film, they pioneer new wingsuit flights in the European Alps and experience the highs and lows of a flying life. Finally, the future of the sport is envisioned, where scientists in Switzerland explain how pilots can soon achieve perfectly balanced and relatively safe flight paths using cruise-control autonomous systems and small engines. - from Vimeo.

Drew Bezanson Returns”, filmed and edited by Justen Soule; tricks and stunts by Drew Bezanson.

Canadian Drew Bezanson burst onto the BMX scene in a big way back in 2003 after landing a truck driver into an eight-foot quarterpipe as an amateur at the Toronto BMX Jam. But what’s even more impressive than the trick itself is the fact that Bezanson had only been riding BMX for two years at the time. - from Alli Sports.

Interesting slow-motion footage shot on iSpeed 3 instead of the typical Phantom or EPIC. Pretty nice song by Mux Mool, too.
