About - Flake & Flames - The Kustom Kulture Adventure.
Flakes & Flames is a feature length documentary film about the astonishing Kustom Kulture movement around the globe. By Dirk "The Pixeleye" Behlau and Jesper Bram.
We are spending a year traveling U.S. and Europe in search of the coolest Kustom Kulture people and events on the planet. Picking the brains of living legends, up and coming artists and builders within the culture.
We seek out some of the hottest Kustom Kulture spots and get some of the worlds best car and motorcycle builders, tattoo artists, pinstripers, custom painters and pin-up models to share their tricks and experience.
It is our goal to create a film that kick ass, looks great and is full of great insights wether you never heard of Kustom Kulture before or have lived it all your life. If you are new to Kustom Kulture we will show you what fantastic creativity and passion that exists behind terms like; Low Brow Art, Hot Rod building, Custom, Pinstriping etc. If you are familiar with Kustom Kulture already, we want you to watch and learn from the masters and have a rare look into the private workshops of some Kustom Kulture legends of our time.
What we have done so far?
We have been in California filming awesome material with some of the greatest Kustom Kulture artists and fabricators. Including; The Pizz, Von Franco, Frank Kozik, Dirty Donny, Bob Spina, Rob Kruze, Coop, Cole Foster, Kutty Noteboom, Dan Collins, Doug Dorr, Arie Van Schyndel. The video you see above is a small taste of what we got in the box from that.
What is next?
The next step to complete the film, is seeking out the European artists and fabricators. Although Kustom Kulture originated in U.S. the film would be incomplete without some of the amazing talent Europe has to offer. Like; Pekka Wizzz from Finland, Blaster from Italy, Maze from Germany, Empire 32 from France, Von Sven from Sweden, and many more.
What do I fund?
Traveling is by far the biggest post on our budget. The people we seek out don't exactly live door to door. We funded the filming in California with our own savings. The money we raise here will be used to fund filming some of the very best European artists and builders. It will cover plane tickets, lodging, car rental, boat fares, gas, and our most necessary living expenses when we are on the road. The plan is to finish filming during the remaining half of 2011, and then start on post production. We aim to release the film early 2012.
This is the over all budget we are working with:
