This year’s Black Scale Video Lookbook video features model Hugo Lopez and was shot again in San Francisco, CA. The concept behind these videos are usually based on Black Scale’s revolving them of balance, and how each person interprets it. The unique part about these videos is that they are loosely scripted and involve a decent amount of improvisation. This gives you a lot of room to experiment with each location. They’re usually parts of San Francisco that are unique to the city’s history or visual landscape. When I look back on all the video’s we’ve worked on, you can see how different they end up being. This one is no different, but you can still see Black Scale’s aesthetic shine through.

Escape From Alcatraz contains a series images I captured during my visit to San Francisco’s famous landmark. It’s been a while since I took a trip there and I wanted to visit the @Large by Ai Weiwei exhibit that was happening. Alcatraz is strange because tons of tourist flock to this island where our most dangerous inmates were once kept. Now it attracts people from all over the world to see this prison that remained more or less unchanged. The unique location lends itself to being photographed quite often and so I wanted to make a short film about it myself.

Escape From Alcatraz, San Francisco from Brian Chu on Vimeo.

I wanted to capture Alcatraz how it would looked back when people were still kept there. There are some recent additions and changes made to make it more accessible, but more or less it feels like it did in the 1930’s. It has been said that inmates could often hear people in the city when the wind blew a certain direction. I always wondered if it would make their time there easier or harder being in such a beautiful place, and so close to freedom. Lucky enough for me I didn’t commit any crimes on Alctraz, and I was able to take the boat back to San Francisco.

I’ve known AO Anderson (lead singer), and Tony Bednar (drummer) before they even started Crashing Hotels. I met AO when Austin and I were still filming our 50 State recession documentary, “The Recess Ends” back in 2009. I needed music for the film and AO became an integral part of that process. Since then they have contributed music for our videos and we have collaborated on many projects. It’s amazing to see their hard work paying off and people catching onto their sound/style. Crashing Hotels is playing a sold out show The Independent as part of the 2015 Noise Pop Festival.

This video was filmed in one day at our studio in SF. I woke up one morning and really felt like making something happen, and AO is always down to experiment. Sometimes you just have to practice and see what you can come up with. We captured the performance portions of the video and we sampled the visuals from the movie, “Beyond the Black Rainbow.”

I Have a Life: Mexico

In this edition of I Have a Life; I visit my blood in Mexico, I eat the local cuisine, photograph every damn thang and endanger my life via unprotected motorsports. All photos shot on Kodak Portra film using a Mamiya 645AF system.

The first part was a visit to Culiacan, Sinaloa; world famous for it’s role in the international drug trade. Most people don’t know that Sinaloa is the “salad bowl” of Mexico. Tomatoes are the name of the game.

The trip started with a visit to my grandmothers house in Culiacan, Sinaloa. Grandma is in her 90’s and is still active. She refuses to use a cane instead preferring to use grandchildren to maneuver around.   (Pictured here blinking. “Cerro de La Silla, Monterrey” is seen adjacent)

I was spoiled day and night at grandmas. Machaca for breakfast and Menudo for lunch. These foods alleviate : hangovers, heartbreak and the common Cold.

Grandma makes me Machaca y Menudo.

We played with matches with little cousin.

I got Ice Cream and witnessed old school meat techniques at the central market. The Zebu bovine is lauded for it’s ability to withstand humid weather and bad ass humps.

Next Came Monterrey, Nuevo Leon.

Monterrey is one of the industrial centers of Mexico. It has deep roots that run back to the 1500’s.  The city is known for Steel, Auto Parts and Beer. Brands like Tecate, Dos Equis and Bohemia are produced in the city. It’s considered the most “americanized” city in Mexico. That basically means that there are Microbrews, Costcos and multinationals with headquarters there. Oh and lots of off road vehicles, Rubicon style.

 

Botero has a sculpture in the civic center.

Museo de Historia Mexicana y Caballo de Botero.

We went for a river boat ride in Parque Fundidora. Followed by random Mercedes limos rolling through.

Parque Fundidora was built over the old foundry. It’s massive, has bike paths, funky buildings and an artificial river. The park is in the oldest part of the city good for portraits. Cobble stones and all that good stuff.

Me and the Government Center Building of Monterrey, Mexico.

Las Cumbres de Monterrey National Park has some movie like landscapes. People also come here to do some “casual motorsports”.

Foothills and Lakes. Also, some dude got cray and drove his Jeep into the river.

To end the trip I did a video game style picture in picture of me cruising.

This video was created on Kodak Vision 3 using a Yashica Super 8mm. Check out my YouTube & Vimeo for other videos.
