Painted in Dust :: a short film by Deus Ex Machina

Stream Painted In Dust for free

Deus Ex Machina puts out some killer content. I’m personally a huge fan of their Head Designer, Carby Tuckwell, and admire the unique style Carby and Deus have carved out for themselves. If you’re not aware, they kill it in the video department too. Head Director and Producer, Dustin Humphrey, cut his teeth as a surf photographer. Dustin’s images always provoke a sense of adventure and create a longing to be there, where ‘there’ happens to be. Deus Ex Machina recently released a short film by Dustin Humphry called Painted in Dust: A Portrait of Forrest Minchinton, which can now be streamed for free via their website or YouTube channel.

Watching Painted in Dust not only made me want to go ride a dirt bike through the desert immediately, I found myself captivated my Humphrey’s choice of lighting. There’s not a single shot where lighting wasn’t considered. To anyone watching that isn’t photo-minded, this might get overlooked but those of us who know, know that every angle was intentional.

Forrest Minchinton, the star of the feature, was raised by the desert. Growing up in Huntington Beach, CA, Forrest and his surfboard shaper dad – Mike – took every chance they got to head out to the Mojave desert. There, on a remote compound constructed from objects lost and found, Forrest learned to ride motorcycles, shape surfboards, and see the world through a different lens.

Go watch it now, and be prepared to go dust of your moto boots, load up your whatever bike you’ve got, and head for the desert. Shoot, it’s making me want to consider building my own compound in the high desert. There still is land to be had, after all.
