Winners of Fuel TV’s million dollar short film contest, Corey Adams and Alex Craig have created a satirical indictment of our logo-laden, consumerist culture which is equal parts comedy and fable, and 100% just plain weird.
Take the 1971 Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, set it at the enigmatic headquarters of the world’s most famous skateboard conglomerate, imbue it with the off-kilter humour of Wes Anderson and the fantastical surrealism of Terry Gilliam and Michel Gondry, and you have Machotaildrop.
Walter Rhum dreams of escaping his boring, small town existence and becoming a professional skateboarder. He sends a golden highlight reel to the world-famous Machotaildrop skateboard company and is chosen to come to their headquarters, a remote country estate with a half-pipe sitting on a lake, to study under its eccentric leader, The Baron, and ride alongside his idol, Blair Stanley. At first, everything seems normal for Walter. He has his own room, is fed roast goose in bed, provided with a custom wardrobe and groomed for stardom. His bashful personality is a hit, launching his new signature skateboard to massive sales.
Fecal face blog has done an interview with Corey Adams the writer and director of Machotaildrop. Check it out and learn a little more about the making of.
Kari posted Who is Neil Krug and we finally got an answer. Read Fecal Face’s interview with the 25 year old prodigy here. Next question, will Neil do an art show at Nemo this year…
This photo caught my eye last night and i wanted to know more about the man that shot it. So i Google the name below the photo “Neil Krug” I found his flicker archive and fell in love! seriously this guy has some really cool work. I don’t know much more about him other than that he is also a cinematographer/director. And made a film called “invisible pyramid” that was released in October of 2008. But keep an eye on fecal face who promise to have more on this artist soon!
I’m going to be blowing my next paycheck on none other than as much medium format polaroid film as i can buy.
Yes, I am sure you are all tired of the myriads of bloggings flying about the web trying to save the polaroid. So i will just say only this, lets face it, the age of medium format polaroid is not-so-slowly becoming another little bump in photographic history, stock up and let it go.
In memory of the newly extinct medium format polaroid film i thought i would post my favorite polaroid photographer. The Polaroid Kid. His work is everything i love in photography…and there is an awesome interview with him featuring more of his picture on fecal face.
