beautiful losers + nike: make something.

Released earlier this year, “Beautiful Losers” is an inspiring and honest documentary about the nature of creativity and the lives of artists. It harnessed the pure joy that should spring forth from the act of creation. I was so totally inspired after seeing it that I thought my body might convert into light or just float away forever.

If you haven’t seen it yet or aren’t familiar with it, check out the trailer. You’ll be hooked:

In the spirit of the documentary, “Beautiful Losers” teamed up with Nike to throw art workshops for youth in L.A. and New York. They’ve released short web vids showing us the energy and buzz that obviously filled the air as young people got to be inspired by working with some of the biggest artists in the world. Directed by Arlo Rosner for Blacklake Productions, who said:

“The inspirational element of the whole thing wasn’t just about the artists inspiring the kids to get out there and make things, but it was the kids inspiring the artists” says Barlow. “The appreciation was flowing pretty heavy in both directions.”
