Show Preview

So you've been invited to preview the first two episodes of SNEAKYBOY, the new meta-post-post-post-modern series from Sneakyboy. It's a show about making a show, about being a filmmaker and trying to stay above the poverty line. Also we sneak into stuff. Let's get Sneaky...

These pictures were taken in London, Paris, Rome, & Positano. Seeing these places was a dream come true. Our hope is to save these moments with the emotional aspects of the trip intact.

We can't force meaningful experiences- We just gotta show up and cross our fingers. All of us hope for fantastic, dreamy moments, sure, but squeezing the life out of it with a social-media-dream-life amount of pressure makes sure the delicate nuances will be lost. The Eiffel Tower is just a tower at the end of the day... It's cool to see it, but it doesn't fulfill the emptiness we were promised it would. Just show up, eyes wide, mind buzzing, and determine yourself to be present and grateful for whatever magic comes your way. It will find you if you let it.  -Sophie, @litte_wildheart

Instead of buying stuff our generation does stuff. Experiences > Things. We all have places we dream to see, but until we go, we won't know what it's actually like there. I studied French for 6 years, but I still arrived with a caricature of Paris in my mind. The first part of this trip was feeling these old ideas change. I lost my flattened understanding of Paris from textbooks and Instagram for the reality of actually being there. We cannot avoid this. It is just the nature of dreaming, to one day feel our dreams hit reality. 

It's okay that not every moment lives up to the magic of pictures, we only get a handful of those magic moments anyway. 

Even on a beautiful trip around Europe with the love of my life, the mundane moments still made up the majority of our time. Those moments can also be a little special, but we often overlook them. Mundane is okay. Just take things as they come. Once you do you'll find you can live in a peaceful contentment wherever you go. Then it's much better to travel like that together. -Jimmy, @JimmyGable

Photo Journal - Asia

In 2014, we had a gig scheduled in the Philippines, but very quickly realized we needed to expand that trip into a fun-sized tour through South East Asia. So, we broke open our piggy banks and did just that. The plan was to head to the Philippines to tag-team a job as cinematographers on a feature length film. The shoot lasted 3 weeks and had a fantastic cast/crew to show us around the beach town of Boracay. After wrapping on that project we extended the trip and took a ship to Caticlan, then a plane to Manila for a few days, then Hong Kong, Kyoto, and then, finally, an overnight bus ride to Tokyo.

The extended part of the trip was jam-packed and honestly a struggle at times without a crew of locals to lean on, especially as we took on cities with a much starker cultural rift than that of the Philippines (culturally the unofficial 51st state). When we landed in China, we felt very much alone, and the few days we had in each city went by at a break-neck speed. We both knew, however, that just by being in these cities of South East Asia -- these places that we had both seen as icons of culture inspiring us for years -- we just had to just try to take in everything a day at a time, and if we did that, we couldn't lose. It turned out we didn't mind so much being alone either.

I think experiencing cultural rifts and individual rifts; the ideas of permanence and impermanence; authority and submission; expectations and reality; identity and the recursive nature of society, are all running themes from the trip that I was dealing with while working on these photos.
