Create & explore | Com Truise

A collaboration with Create & Explore and Com Truise.

I've been a fan of Com Truise since I discovered his music through the ISO50 blog years ago. I've always really enjoyed his music because it has a retro-spacey vibe to it. While making this film I kept that vibe and the words "Create and Explore" in mind and for that reason most of the filming took place in the desert two hours from San Diego. Some of the locations were not only out of GPS range but were also inaccessible without a four-wheel drive vehicle. 

I also wanted to feature some of San Diego's famous Brutalist architecture. The Salk institute, Geisel Library and the Pavilion. To me Brutalist architecture has that retro-space vibe of the 70's. The combination of otherworldly terrain and the rawness of Brutalist architecture, it felt as if I was exploring another planet.
