Alex Craig - Life in General

Alex Craig
Director, Cinematographer

In 1994, Bryan Fox’s dad bought a 1975 GMC Vandura. Its name? General. Its purpose? Family surf/skate/snow missions from Baja to Baker. General served the Foxes on countless good trips before the kids reached adulthood and they gave the van to a friend in Mexico. Fast forward a few decades and Bryan was given the chance to own General. Within a day, he was on a flight.

Within months, he was kicking off a new trip in General. The next several weeks were spent surfing, fishing, hunting, split boarding and meeting people. They shared old stories. They created new ones. They lived a simple life and they focused on the things that really matter.

In this short film for Quiksilver British director and cinematographer Alex Craig showers the audience with lush landscape on a roadtrip from waves to mountains.

Rodney Lucas - My Brothers Keeper

Rodney Lucas
Filmmaker

Titus Batts and DeSonni Hardge are the young co-captains of South Shore Drill Team, a non-profit organization based in Chicago that uses performance art to empower disenfranchised youth. In a city with a narrative of violence and crime, these two boys are showing their communities that the routines that bond them in drill are stronger than the social pressures that would divide them on the streets.

With an extensive background in the music industry, director Rodney Lucas attributes the poetic tonality, and rhythmic flow of his films to the time he spent touring the world as a performance artist.
