Venturing in-land from the rainbow region we embarked on an exploration for surreal environments. What we discovered was a Utopian paradise of graffiti-trashed rusted ramps, encompassed by teepees, mechanical relics and isolated mountain outlooks.

Shot in a single afternoon our ragtag gang of skaters, artists + extended family members commandeered the isolated transitions and transformed them into a playground of recreational mayhem. It was our blank canvas where rules didn't apply & the dreamers were allowed to believe once more...

The final result is a cross pollination of pop culture where french fries meets 360-flips and flares alight the forest. We came, we created and destroyed!!

'In Our Nature' is a Short Film by Kaius Potter featuring Boyd Young, Robert 'Maca' Macalister and introducing Daniel Bones.

Photography by our master of 35mm film Sam Nolan with videography by Kaius Potter, Maria Bui & Toby Cregan."
