Do you want a job in one of the most competitive creative industries in the world? Do something cool and prove it!
This is one of the most amazing things I’ve sene in a while. This piece is completely low-fi and doable for anyone who has the guts to make something like this.
This artist hits me over the head with his attention to detail, and the harmony with which he couples imagery. You can’t help but look at his work and want to create something yourself.

A demo doesn’t get any better than this.
THIS SUCKS. Let me tell you why:
I have a huge problem with this video. This is totally off brand for Nike. The notion of “Make it Count” doesn’t even work with this video - he’s not making anything count (in any sort of productive way). Nike is a brand about aspiring to do great things… pushing oneself, challenging oneself. It’s not about being a narcissistic dumb a** and seeing how many places you can travel in 10 days on someone else’s dime. You can’t just name drop a bunch of quotes, and think you have a powerful communication… Not to mention the quotes had nothing to do with what he was doing. Schmoozing around doing backflips with cute little jump-cuts and spending someone else’s money doesn’t equate risk, pushing personal limits, or challenging oneself in hopes of gaining perpective.
I think this sums it up nicely - “you’re not making anything count you’re being a bunch of self-serving shallow hedonistic typical american whores.”
