What Youth


Last month I headed out to Palm Desert with Aloha Beach Club to celebrate the release of What Youth: Issue Fifteen. As we pulled into the familiar ACE Hotel parking lot, the warm, desert air welcomed us with a tight squeeze and immediately led us to the glistening pool for an evening dip. 

After trekking all day through the Arizona desert, our good friends, Matt Bruening and Brennen Cunningham, met us poolside before we all headed to the private pool at The Commune for the release party. What Youth pulled out all the stops for the event. Los Angeles based punk band, The Paranoyds, kicked off the night with an unreal set before the back-to-back screenings of Everything's Wrong But In The Right Place and Dion Agius' new film, The smiling bag. All in all the night served as a great (unofficial) farewell to summer.

Dispatch: Lost At Sea With Brother.

Earlier this year What Youth went on a boat trip to Indonesia in search of waves for their newest short film entitled, BrotherBrother is a profile film about Kolohe Andino, a professional surfer from San Clemente. I had the pleasure of editing a short series with leftover footage shot on an old, handheld camera by Kolohe's family friend.
