On The Cusp, Longlist - Music Video

Monster Rally, Adventure

Zak Marx


Adventure explores the world of 1970s competitive moto-racing in finely textured, surreal miniature. It follows perennial #2 ranked rider, 'Sunshine,’ during the 1972 Baja 1000 as he ruminates in the shadows of adored, world champion, Jammin’ Jackie Hudson. Inspired by Bruce Brown’s 1971 classic On Any Sunday, this music video was shot on both Super 16mm film and broadcast news cameras of the era.
