It hasn't been long since our last wakeboarding video, but I felt that this is a must see.

BFY Productions has partnered up with four-time X Games gold medalist Danny Harf to work on a new thrill project entitled DEFY. This three-year projects includes boat stunts, exotic locations, and top level riders. My favorite part of this video clip is the cripsy clean blue/green water.

The Maul

There’s a common misconception that rugby is just American football. While there are some similarities, Rugby and American football are very much different. To demonstrate, here are the ground rules of Rugby. Please practice safe Rugby, no protection pads needed.

Sidenote: Listen to the narrator saying, "ohh very nice"

Beats Per Minute

Flud has done a wonderful job of advertising their new line of watches. Collaborating with musicians, Flud has put together a series of videos that introduce up and coming artists. The interview style videos presents the artists and what part they play in the industry while keeping the main focus on the watch collections. They don’t mentioned the watch, but the video direction is always focused on the brand. This may limit their target audience, but similar to skateboard industry, it’s big business to find a niche in.

3D Camera Mapping

“The Chronicle of a Petrol Station” is a 32 minute documentary in full HD of old photos being taken into a 3D software to be modeled, textured, and composited for a stunning motion imagery. That was a full sentence, let’s break it down. Miklós Falvay took old photography scanned the images, with a 3D software (Blender 2.49) modeled everything in the picture by hand and mapped/textured the scanned image on top of the models and animated it.

Two Fingers - Deuces Up

Adaptation of wakeboarding, with a killer twist. Unlike wakeboarding, the rider is not bound to the board and the top surface of the board is covered with griptape like a skateboard. This give the sport a unique challenge. The riders get high speeds in water, no pavement burns, and they get to rock DVS’s on water.

What’s great about the video is the subtlety of the sound effects when they hit the water. The timewarp on the footage is very well done, the soundtrack is great, and it’s got a full rainbow all the way in one of the shots.

Where's Bob

Raffaella Carrà is no stranger to the house scene. The 68 year-old, singer, dancer, actress teaches the young Frenchmen, Bob Sinclar, how they do it in Milan, Italy. This song is very similar to tracks from Riva Starr and Dennis Ferrer that were a big hit earlier this year, but it's the first time I'm seeing this video.

No Beef (fo' samplin' my shit)

If you happen to be in Vegas this Labor day weekend, then I am sure you heard this track. Afrojack & Steve Aoki pick up the lovely Miss Palmer for vocals on a recycled Lazor Major track, yeah, remember 'Pon de floor'. Steve Aoki is the P. Diddy of house music, his discology is just full of samples, but he does it well so cheers to that.
