“Almost Perfect” by Ryan Gasparini

A charming portrait of Tokyo-based creative residence, Almost Perfect, by Melbourne-based director Ryan Gasparini. Run by Yuka and Luis Mendo (and their cat Señor), the space is located in a 100 year-old building that used to be a rice shop. As Gasparini explains:

“it’s as if the crazy neon lights and packed streets that everyone imagines when they picture the city have vanished and been replaced by cyclists, applied artists and locals peacefully going about their day… [Yuka and Luis] both used to work intense jobs, but decided to switch it up and start something that supports artists and brings people to a city they both live in and love.”

Premiere: Kite Park – “Bongo”

So many great elements in this video for Seoul-born, London-based Kite Park by Dutch filmmaker and photographer Danny Griffioen (previously featured here). Drawing on Kite Park’s nostalgia for the rural Korean countryside, “Bongo” tells the story of a group of friends, including rapper and producer JNKYRD, who embark on an idyllic road trip in a Bongo car. Griffioen further describes the project as aiming to create a universe without the anxieties that come from connecting with other people:

“The approach for the video was to recreate this carefree journey, while simultaneously expose growing inner conflicts. Ultimately, in order to connect fearlessly, we need to conquer our self-doubt and in doing so, free ourselves.”

Watch above and check out some behind-the-scenes images from the shoot below!

JNKYRD
