Dawen x Kuma Films "Thrift Shop" ft. RPG - Music Video

Here is the music video we helped our friend Dawen film. It's a cover of a popular song back in the states but in his own Chinese version. We didn't have time to edit the video so Dawen did all the editing.

Filming, Park, Dinner

After work today we went and met up with a guy named Eddie to film a new video. A friend I met out here introduced us to him and recommended we film him. He is into riding bikes (BMX) so we met up with him at the skatepark to start filming. It was a perfect sunny day but then it started raining out of nowhere for a little bit so we weren't able to film to much. After filming with him, we went and walked around a park for a little bit and then we met up with Joyce and her family to go out to dinner. They told the restaurant it was Todd's birthday so he got dessert and a picture of us on a mug.

Todd's Birthday Weekend

Todd's birthday was last Friday so we went and saw the new Superman movie in the morning and then got lunch at Chili's. I had to go to work, but after work we ate some cheesecake.

Yesterday, A bunch of people went up 陽明山 (Yangmingshan) to longboard down the hills. After work, Todd, Grace, her brother, our cousin Christine and I went to hangout and skate with everyone.

Today, we all went to an amusement park called 六福村 (liufucun). It was a pretty cool park. It was like Lagoon, but the rides weren't as intense. Their main attraction ride was under maintenance so that was disappointing. It was a really nice day to begin with, but around 2pm it started to rain a lot. After hanging around for a couple hours we decided to head home.

Red Bull / Movie Premiere

We got an email a couple days ago from the sports manager of Red Bull in Taiwan. We will hopefully be able to work with them soon.

Yesterday we went out with some friends so they could do some parkour training. After that, the skateboard shop we made a video for was having a movie premiere for a skateboard video and a surfing video and they wanted to show the video we made to everyone. We watched it outside under a bridge on a big screen. About 50-60 people showed up. After watching the videos we went out to eat at a tepanyaki restaurant with Grace and her brother.

LG Video

Here is the video we filmed at the LG event. The guy we worked with did all the cool effects for the video.

Tiger Surf Shop

After work today, we went over to Tiger Surf Shop to show them the video we put together for them from their last event. They wanted us to finish it this week because they are having a movie premiere on Saturday for a couple skate videos and wanted to show ours there as well. While we were there, Tiger, the owner, gave us a new skateboard, wheels and some stickers. The people at that shop are too nice.

Quiksilver/Roxy Fashion Show

Yesterday we went and filmed at the W Hotel for the fashion show. There were quite a bit of people there. It was a fun shoot but really hot because the show was outside. The catwalk was on the swimming pool which was pretty cool.

Meeting A New Friend

Today we went and filmed at a park to get more shots for Todd's new video. While we were there we saw a guy on a bike hopping around from rock to rock. We decided to go talk to him to see if he would be interested in making a video with us. We were able to film a few clips with him. One of the clips is below. While we were filming Todd, a huge crowd of people gathered around with their cell phones taking pictures.
