We thought it was all over when Creed spilled his beer on a Cluster hard drive. But once he licked it all up, we knew we’d be fine.
We spent the last 3 weeks living in tight quarters together, sleeping very little and usually only at the HQ in an effort to meet all the deadlines we have for the Special Edition What Youth Issue #10 (on sale Tuesday!) and meeting the film’s rapidly approaching deadline. When we started What Youth, we wanted to make the mag and the movies and everything we do under one big funhouse, together. No boardrooms, no corporate bullshit. Just us, making shit as a team. And so, here is that. What Youth photographer Nate Lawrence was doing his yearly stint in Santa Cruz and bolted down I-5 to come make the mag with us this time, and he shot a roll of film throughout the process — we developed it and here’s some of the absurdity: us making the Cluster movie and mag. One big dysfunctional team of homies.
