Video artist Daniel Askill is one of the most creative and talented directors to come out of Australia. Askill paired up with Austalian fashion brand Ksubi to create Kolors, which was launched last week to promote the label’s return to coloured denim (and to coincide with Australian Fashion Week).
Kolors has been heavily influenced by Askill’s previous work, most notably, We Have Decided Not To Die – a short film written, directed and edited by Askill back in 2004. The film has made sporadic appearances online – but always seems to get pulled. Well, I’m pretty pumped, becasue I’ve managed to find it again and it’s available to watch in it’s entirety. I’m stoked to share this one with you. Its a wordless and visually gorgeous piece and has provided inspiration for a lot of music videos, advertisements and films since it was released.
