A few aerials from home on the Noosa River yesterday morning. This was my fourth launch of the drone, starting to get familiar with the controls.

Seeing Beauty

11/13/2016 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO, WORDS

I hit a dark patch earlier this year. It was reconnecting with nature that lifted the dark clouds. This was the first handful of shots I took after 6 months without picking up a camera. I’m going to keep focusing on the little pieces of beauty I see and posting the vision up here, and if it makes one person feel good I’ll feel good, and that’s what life’s about. Anxiety is the realest force I’ve felt since falling in love. It’s indescribable to those that haven’t felt it. Reach out if you’re feeling wack, don’t let the clouds and the claws get you. Talk to your family, talk to your friends! All we need is love! If you’re going through hell, keep going!

Cast Your Own Shadow: Lee Brennan

10/07/2015 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO, CAST YOUR OWN SHADOW, FRIENDS OF RV, PROJECTS

I’ve been dwelling on a project, and it feels like the time is right… CAST YOUR OWN SHADOW is a simple yet aesthetic based project that will tell the stories of creative crew. The ones that teachers said would amount to nothing… “You don’t think drawing pictures will become a career now do you Johnny?!”… It’s about the people who stepped aside from the pack, and as the title suggests; Cast their own shadow.
Lee Brennan will launch the project. Here is a glimpse at what Lee does, and who he is // check his work and collabs with @valleyeyewear // @leebrennandesign.

We are looking for sponsorship for this project. Email info@runamukvisuals.com if it interests you or your business.

Cast your own shadow with Monique Mears

04/22/2009 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, CAST YOUR OWN SHADOW

l_d547a081d2f7b45f6170892e1e5350b8

We have been talking it up for sometime now… Models this, models that… The concept of showcasing Australia’s finest girls sounds great, making it happen is a few steps harder…

That was until we met Monique Mears…

Apart from her obvious beauty Monique is a professional… In a world full of beautiful girls ‘work ethic’ can be the one thing that sets you apart from the rest. Monique has her feet planted firmly on the ground and her happy go lucky nature makes for more than just another swimwear model…

But at the end of the day it’s her smile that will send most lads around the bend…

We introduce you to Miss Monique Mears.

RV: How have you been? How’s life been treating you?
MM: Yeah really well… Got a full time job which I love, A place to call home and great friends and family surrounding me. Couldnt be happier.

RV: Let us into the life of a model? it must be a tough road?

MM: It can be. Mine wasn’t very tough though. If you’re an international high end fashion model then yeah I think that’d probably be a hard road but I do swimwear which was pretty easy to get into. I’ve been doing it pretty full on since I turned 18 but i’ve sort of settled myself down now. As long as you make the most of every situation your put in and always be yourself with as much confidence as possible… It’s not tough at all.

l_3530626928c6e52881a35b931e66ec72

RV: There’s more to it than just looks right?
MM: I’d hope so. The last comp I done was the national finals for Inside Sport on the Gold Coast last year and I won Miss Personality. I know i’ve come away from every comp or every photoshoot as someone to be remembered. I think that’s important and from that i’ve managed to get quite a few jobs/shoots because people have remembered me and passed my name on.

RV: What magazine would you love to be on the cover of?

MM: The Source. It’s a hip hop mag and i’d probably have to be a musician if I was going to be able to be on the cover of it.. But I love that mag!

n516589861_1157295_2327

RV: What’s your best and worst feature?
MM: Best feature would be my eyes… My worst?… My fingernails… Chronic Nail biter!! (dont look)

RV:  What do you think of ‘feminism’? Are you happy for a guy to open the car door for you?
MM: Yeah of course I am, but to be totally honest… I’m perfectly capable of opening the door by myself… Though open the door for my mum and i’ll love you!

RV: Leaving the toilet seat up? why is it such a big deal?
MM: Is it?? If I wanted to go to the toilet in the dark and the seat was up then i’d be a bit devo’d… I dunno… maybe the whole reason behind leaving the seat up hasn’t sunk in with me yet.

RV: What is the one thing that shits you about us guys in general?
MM: I dont think I have one. All guys are different so I can’t say… I hate it how guys have to be dominant… but then some aren’t dominant enough. I really have no idea!

l_d6d03b10c8b999b2f3922107f75f2db9
RV: What are your sights set on in the modelling world? What do you want back from modelling?
MM: I want to get enough of a name for myself to start my own swimwear/lingerie brand or  design for a major company.

RV: If you were only able to listen to one genre of music for the rest of your life? what would it be?
MM: R’n’B… Its all I listen to anyway.

RV:  What’s one thing in this world that really ruffles your feathers?
MM: When I get on the train in the morning and the speaker says ”doors about to close”… You have to fully struggle to get in the carriage, no one moves to help let you in !!! Ahh.. FRUSTRATES ME SO BAD!!

RV:. The one thing that puts a smile on your face more than anything else?
MM: My Mum… without a doubt!

RV: As a model you are paid to look good, what do you do to keep fit?
MM: I just dance… That’s all.. The gym and I aren’t friends at all… Maybe ’cause I need someone to tell me what to do to get into it. But seriously… I’ve attempted going and then I just look at all the equipment and dont know where to start and then I psych myself out. I used to work out heaps at home but i just dont anymore… Thank God for my metabolism or else i’d be a HUGE HEFFA!

RV: Whenever you hear a girl asked what do they look for in a guy ‘a good sense of humour’
always comes up… why is it that some of the funniest guys I know cant find a girl to save themselves?
MM: When have you ever heard a girl say JUST THAT???… It’s usually followed by tall, dark and handsome!… There’s two ways to put it I guess. If a girl doesn’t say that then she’s shallow… But if she does say that then people just think they’re saying it cause they have to… It’s a lose, lose situation for us. But its the same for guys… If I asked you that question would ‘a good sense of humour’ come up?

RV: Ken Oath!… Magda, me, milkshakes, under the stars… wondering what if

l_ae53ba678e38b029d3ac38dc23077e94

RV: What do you look for then?
MM: A good sense of humour haha… Taller than me when i’m wearing heels. someone cuddly… I like to be able to fit my whole arms around someone. Cheeky smile. Adventurous. Patient… Who is good at what he does.

RV: Whats the best and worst tune line you’ve heard?
MM: This is the last thing that happened to me… I was at the eastern in Bondi on Wednesday and a guy came up to me and just straight out asked for my number… No intro or anything, so I said ”no”… Of course… But then I said.. “Your biggest mistake was that you didnt ask my name”. So he asked me my name and I just replied “It doesnt matter now does it?” and turned around. I don’t really get approached or find that people are on the tune with me… I dont really put myself in the position for things like that to happen.

RV: A muscle bound, fake tanned, crab stick offers to buy you a drink…whats your response?
MM: No thankyou.

RV: You get invited to the RUNAMUK VISUALS cricket test match… Are you sunbaking with the girls, smackin 6’s with
boys or spewing up from too many shandy’s?
MM: Smackin 6’s with the boys… I dont know how to play but im up for giving anything a try… I do like sunbaking with the girls too I wont deny that…

n516589861_1165803_3011

RV: Whats your thoughts on the amount of girls pashing girls you see on a night out? is it an epidemic or is it just ‘cool’
MM: I dont see that stuff happening… I’m too busy minding my own business on the dance floor but I do see pictures of that stuff… I dont think I have any friends that do that stuff… It’s what you go through in highschool. I think its childish and stupid and chics that do it crave attention way too hard. Unless your actually GENUINELY bi or lesbian… Then thats alright…

RV: What do you think is the best look for young blokes like us? RV thinks current trends are destroying our livelyhood
MM: I work for a mens clothing store and i’d agree… I’d never date a guy that wore Tight as jeans. I like just a straight cut jean with a shirt and some nice shoes. I hate RABEN shoes!! I love hoodies…

RV: A few words to describe Runamuk Visuals?
MM: Unique, a Class of its Own.

RV: ohhh, you dont mean that.

thanks Monique…

DALLAS FRASCA

04/07/2009 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO, FRIENDS OF RV, PROJECTS

A heap of us recently headed west to Eumundi to see one of our best mates play a gig at Joes Waterhole.

Jeffy Curran plays alongside Dalla Frasca, one of the most unique and gruntiest female vocalists Australia has ever produced… If you ever get the chance to see these guys live dont hesitate to strap up your boots and get ready for some stompin’… I think I can collectively say it was one of the best nights we have ever had… If you want the doors blown off your local pub mention these 2 lunatics to the manager… The 2 of them are currently in Montreal, Canada after being selected as the sole Australian act to represent our country in the International Earth day festival… TURN IT UP!

A few years back I used to spend countless hours standing on the beach, just myself and my trusty VX… You can have all the tricks in the book and the best soundtrack in the world but without the time spent on the beach you got nothing… On top of that you need coin to get your film playin in the loungerooms of the world… Which is where we stumbled… RV never managed to get our vids to the masses, must of knocked on the wrong doors… Thesedays there is covermount DVD’s on every second mag, so the times have changed a little… Anyhow the point is, I have a pile of old footage just sitting here waiting for the mould to set in… Some of it may not have been seen… Then again who knows?

CREATIVE DESTRUCTION – A DAY OF METAL

02/24/2009 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, CREATIVE DESTRUCTION

Honestly… I cant be bothered writing a run down of what went down… It hurts my brain to recall the day, then to write it in a way that makes sense hurts further… I have a few mental notes –  COLD COUNTRIES BREED METAL – FULL SLEEVES ARE RIFE – BLACK OR NOTHIN’ – EVERYTIME I DIE RULE – THE BOGAN STILL RUNS FREE.

A few frames taken from Episode 1 of CREATIVE DESTRUCTION.

CREATIVE DESTRUCTION Ep 1 – A DAY OF METAL

As a kid I listened to metal & punk… only metal & punk… Sick of it all, Operation Ivy, Minor Threat, Throwdown, Toe to Toe, Rancid,  Tool, Disturbed,  Black Flag, Kurgan, Down, Dreamkillers, Sabbath, Helmet, Toe to Toe, One Inch Punch, Iggy, Danzig, Fugazi… I still remember the melted tapes on the dash of my dads Kingswood… But somewhere between then and now I got lost in life and became an adult. I forgot about how good power music is for your soul… Crew might laugh at that comment but do yourself a favour, one day when your home alone find some proper metal or punk, turn it up, right up, louder than ever before, sit back and feel that shit… Then tell me your wellbeing isnt adjusted…

Music is the greatest thing the world ever created… It can evoke emotions like nothing else, happiness, sadness, anger, contentment… It can make you dance, run, jump, raise your fists, nod your head, tap your feet… But nothing will make you feel alive like all out power metal…

Maybe im wrong… But I dont really care.

Everything about the Billabong World Championships is rad… The worlds best juniors fight it out for the title… The beach is rife with rigs… blah, blah, its simple…

The youth set the standards in everything… So this event is about as good as competition surfing gets… Whatever it is thats deemed to be cool is because some kid stepped aside from the pack and made it that way… Eventually a pile of old plebs poach their set ups, it dies and something new comes along… How many old dicks have you seen with their Frogskins lately? you’re too old mate, go home to your wife she worries… Its a vicious circle... Anyhow, junior surfing is runnin’ way like a wild dog… Every kid can do an air reverse but the ones who can do ’em amongst a link of power and style should find themselves at Narrabeen in January…

I dont know whats goin on down there… In my mind Aussies make up a good part of the worlds best juniors. Julian, Owen, Sharpey, Wilko, Heathy, Kennedy… Its been this way for the past 5 or so years but we still cant take it out… Parko was the last Aussie to raise the cup… Cans just missed it and from then on its been Brazillians, Hawaiians and South Africans wavin’ their flag on the beach at Narra… Kekoa owned it a few years back and he earnt it well… Jordy stomped it… This year it was Kai Barger and the same applies… He owned it in every sense of the word… If they had of judged the event on style they would of given it to the kid before he flicked off his first wave.

I got my grubby mits on a heap of footage from the quarter finals onwards. Apart from the odd news story and some clips around the web I never got too see how good the kid who took the trophy was… So here’s RV’s take on it… A big thanks to Billabong Entertainment especially Kendall, Nimai, Dwayno, Jack and Richie for thier time and skills behind the lens…  a creepy spot on!

NUTZ NARRA a day to remember

12/04/2008 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO, PROJECTS

NUTZ NARRA… the World Junior Champs movie…

…RATTY…HAGGARD…MESSY… NOISEY… Were the words I wrote on the whiteboard when I began the edit…

I looked back at where my head was at fresh out of highschool and the music that used to get me amped for a surf… PUNK… the faster, the louder, the better… PUNK became the basis of NUTZ NARRA.

The section below ‘A DAY TO REMEMBER’ was the day of days of the event… The music comes fresh from the Goldcoast streets… Gutter to Gutter… ‘NEIGHBOURHOOD SWINE’ are the power you will hear in this section… If you live on the goldy and wonder why your dog wont stop howling, well this 4 piece band are to blame… They have been stripping the paint off venues across the Goldcoast for months on end… With still a couple of em in highschool I hate to think what these swines have in store for next year… But it’s gonna be a sight to see and some sounds to hear. ENJOY!

To hear more of the Swines go to www.myspace.com/swinepunx
