Chapter One is our most amazing project so far. With over 3 years in the making, shot in 9 countries resulting in 90TB of 4K finger licking footage, it is the passion project we are most proud of.
‘Chapter One | The Kiteboard Legacy Begins’ introduces viewers to the most exciting action sport on the planet and, as its name suggests, writes the first chapter of kiteboarding history.Presented by WeTransfer, in co-production with Red Bull Media House, this 4K film unites the legends, current champions and future talents of the sport into one cinematic experience.
The world premiere took place in the palace of fine arts in San Francisco, after which it premiered in Tuschinski, Amsterdam. It was awarded ‘Best ocean film’ at the Blue ocean film festival, and was selected for the Maui Film Festival, the international ocean tour, the San Francisco film festival and many more.
“The biggest swell of the season is about the hit Indonesia, we have a big boat and we are going to try to find a wave that has never been surfed properly… do you want to come? If so…. you should leave by tonight.”
That is the phone call we got. And we packed our bags. The boat named Bulan Baru (new moon) turned out to be the most beautiful wooden ship, and the un-surfed wave was nothing short of a dream.
We got our RED EPIC into its water housing and captured the best waves of our lives.

Fink has been one of our favorite bands for years. It’s music served as a soundtrack for many of our overseas adventures. When we got the chance to shoot a documentary about Fin, the lead singer of the band, we teamed up with our buddies at Tommy N Lance photography to create an intimate portrait.
Less Alone takes viewers into the mind of Fin Greenall, writer, composer and frontman of the band Fink. In a psychological journey through dark places and musical inspiration, Fin finds himself struggling to balance his thoughts. Surrounded by judgement, appreciation, and with little mental space, Fin digs in deep to find the meaning of it all.

We believe nothing is set in stone when it comes to creativity. Sometimes, out of sheer passion an idea originates and results in something beautiful.
That’s exactly what happened with this music video. Editor Jay de Jong was nothing short of a die-hard fan of the band Lonely the Brave (tattoos included). So he decided to give a go at directing their new music video.
He spend many after hours developing the concept, script and visual style for the film. And with passionate work comes intangible reward;one of the band members commented that this was his favorite music video ever.

The biggest party in the world has a very distinctive style when it comes to its fantasy-like videos. Its concepts are the brainchild of creative lead Marcel Kaper, who also directed this trailer.
The story evolves around the elixir of life, a precious perfume. In real life, the perfume was also sent to all visitors of Tomorrowland before the event as an entry ticket, connecting them even more to the story.

The 7 noble men of the cirque mondiale represent the 7 stages at the biggest winter festival in Holland called Valhalla.
These characters are half-man half-animal, which inspired director Stijn Waterman to throw some visual fx at it and create something that is half-real half-surreal. If you listen carefully you’ll hear the sound fx in the film were looped and used to create the melody for the house track that’s playing.

Today is a gift. That is the slogan of the biggest festival in Holland; Mysteryland. It’s a place where many music cultures and subcultures meet, and where creativity flourishes.
Director Bob van de Gronde studied how music and sound affect our emotions, how it makes us move, how it unites us and how music makes the hair in our neck stand up when that perfect note hits. This aftermovie reflects a lot of these things, but above all it is a tribute to dance culture.
