starting today you can pre-order Thomas Campbell's new film
Cuatro Sueños Pequeños.
this is very exciting around these parts because, not only am i super psyched for a skateboarding film by Thomas to enter the earth, i also contributed to the packaging of the dvd and the book about the film. i worked on this group of drawings for months with Thomas and i'm very proud of them and how they can sit beside and around this honestly amazing skate film.
here's some stuff i cribbed from the pre-order page:
A skate film - Visual Audio Experiment by Thomas Campbell. This 23 minute movie was shot entirely on 16mm film in a dream scene scenario that blends reality, surreality and a skate adventure starring Javier Mendizabal and Madars Apse. This film captures Javier Brushing his teeth,slobbering on his pillow, bedding down with a beautiful brunette. Also Javi running into Madars Apse in his dream, they skate over volcano's,thru the woods and into cities of Spain,The Canary Islands,Mallorca,The Basque country and California.This film has a completely original soundtrack by the critically acclaimed Basque super group "Chiwoks".And besides the usual unusual camera perspectives you expect from a Thomas Campbell film.
