benrenschen Stone faced between the laughter. Rarely do you meet two people with such beautiful focus on craft and one another. @oda.paints & @kit_king's work tends to favor the dark, however the way they move and speak would suggest otherwise. Such incredible human beings and stoked to be sharing their story on the @society6 blog. You will not regret following their work if you don't already - there's a reason why hundreds of thousands already do. Check out the hyper-realistic timelapse we just released on the s6 blog. #35mm #filmisnotdead #tbt 4d

benrenschen Two awesome things happened today. First was @csistrunk speaking to the importance of a revolutionary spirit in business from @raptstudio. He spoke about how critical giving to others should be a primary motive to success. Working for a community of artists (@society6) his talk was on point. This was the drawing I made before he began speaking. Hell yes, brutha. Keep at!! And big thank you to @creativemorning and kickin ass with this beast off its leash! 4d

benrenschen Living in LA, I don't get to use the word 'quaint' too often. Even in my travels. But Motel Rouleau was exactly that and home for a week while shooting @oda.paints + @kit_king for @society6 out in rural Canada. Stoked to be releasing this vid in the next few days! #35mm #filmisnotdead 7d

benrenschen Deep in the Dunes. Truly grateful to have friends who put up with my "go stand over there and be still. I know it's 117 degrees - can you just face the sun real quick. Okay close your eyes and look back at me. No not your whole body just turn your head. Damn now there's footprints all over. Let's find some clean sand. *hiking dunes* Okay this works. Let's try again. This time face the sun and close your eyes. I'll tell you when to look back at me. Just your head though. JUST YOUR HEAD (over the wind) I know it's a million degrees - tryin to be quick! Okay look. *snap*. Let's get outta here. It's hot as hell." #35mm #filmisnotdead #deathvalley #couldcookaneggonmyhood 2w

benrenschen #OilSpill Reaches LA & Beyond // The Plains All American Pipeline spilled over 120k+ gallons in #SantaBarbara and is now ruining #Malibu beaches. In this case, Matador. The real nuisance aside from picking up oil just walking in the sand - it gets stuck under your finger nails, the smell of the oil is pungent and as you attempt to clean it off any surface (skin or floors) the sticky oil inevitably makes its way into household piping. shame. @surfrider 4w

benrenschen The Only Way Out Is Through // I wanted to capture a larger than life crash of water behind @tsyeung. The cavern behind seemed to naturally accelerate the waves plus the swell was rising. It was starting to look intimidating. So I asked her to stay there. This particular wave raced through the cavern, cleared the part where its supposed crash up bc it was too big to be stopped and that cold ass NorCal water blasted through the opening she blocked. Lunch on me. #35mm #filmisnotdead 1mon
