The Holstee Manifesto: Lifecycle

The video was a labor of love that was developed over a few months, but only came together a week before the shoot.  The rushed intensity of the production is reflected in the pacing of the edit. We couldn’t have done it without the passion of the Holstee team that took turns pedaling the tricycle in which our cinematographer was mounted.

The bicycle, as a liberating medium for transportation, has been overshadowed by the automobile.

“The LifeCycle Film came about as a desire to bring the energy and passion behind the Manifesto to life through something we love–biking. As we seek to live mindful lifestyles that leave a positive impact on the people and world around us, biking has become a passion that is much more than a transportation alternative. It is a way of fully experiencing the city we love and all of its details.

This Film is a celebration. It is a celebration of gatherings, of diversity, of life, and of the beauty of shared experience. We hope you enjoy.”
