The best parkour team in the Middle East, Kuwait’s PK Jaguars took a trip to London and hit all the local spots and trained with local traceurs. They had a great time and really showed the international free runners training in the UK what they can do. All footage was shot by the Jaguars themselves using various cameras from smartphones to Canon’s. I sifted through over 750 clips to find stuff that I enjoyed and edit a video I like. Hope you like it to.
Kuwait’s Big D teamed up with the UK’s Illusive on this one to speak about the youth of today and child labor around the world. I used warm colors to signify hope for a brighter tomorrow and an old film look to represent the timelessness of the problem that is child labor.
This years BC One was big. Red Bull BC One World Champ BBoy Lilou from France and BC One All Star BBoy Pelézinho from Brazil flew into judge the competition here in Kuwait. There were some controversial decisions, great side acts, sweet music and as always killer Kuwait BBoying. BBoy Hush of the always outstanding Electrik Crew took the win and will be traveling to Egypt for a chance at the World Championship in Seoul, South Korea. I wanted a fast paced, colorful clean edit and went with a fun music track to match the vibe of the show. Sit back and enjoy the best moments of the 4 hour event in just over 5 minutes.
This footage was originally supposed spread out in a rap video but it didn’t work out. I still wanted to use it because it is pretty cool and was a lot of fun to film. The look and style we were going for was the Matrix but since we didn’t use it for that I went another direction with the edit. This defo shows with time and planning the Jagaurs could make a nice action movie or be part of a that type of a production. That being said hope you all enjoy it.
I shot and edited this movie in one night. Why? Because I noticed a lot of people on my youtube channel and other places who say that I make Kuwait look beautiful. That is awesome to hear. While Kuwait can be very brown i.e. buildings, roads, the sky it is also an interesting and beautiful place. While it can be hard to find things to do and I have many Non Kuwaiti friends who hate it most people who say that don’t make an effort to get out ant see if that is always the case. So I figured I would show how cool Kuwait could be on any given night and this is the result. Though it can be a very frustrating place I do love Kuwait. And this is my thanks to it and the friends I have made here who make it a great place to be.
So I got with the folks on Camp Arifjan who handle celebrity visits and shows. They have brought over 50 Cent, Ja Rule, Ciara, The American Gladiators, UFC Fighters, Taking Back Sunday, The cast of Spartacus and more. I wanted to see if they could do a show that would show the troops on base, their friends and families back home and anyone else watching that Kuwait isn’t all what they see in the news, browse on the web and emails, read in the paper or hear on the radio. So I suggested The Kuwait Underground. A show that would showcase Kuwait’s dopest talents. I basically asked everyone I have done a video with and others I have seen perform here. We went with the name The Kuwait Underground because the people participating are doing amazing things but these things are just now starting to be accepted in Kuwait. We will have Rappers, Bboys, Dubstep Dancers and Traceurs(Free Runners). There are a lot of names on the roster like The PK Jaguars, 965 Crew, Electrik Crew and Kuwait Got Rhymes with more being added. The video below will be played all over the base so the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen can get a taste of the awesomeness that is The Kuwait Underground’s talent. Unfortunately only people living and or working on Arifjan will get to see it live. But I will be recording and posting all the performances for you guys to watch!!!
I added up how many views I have on videos I’ve made for myself and others. Almost 420,000 Views! That means nearly half a million people have watched my movies in under a year!
TJC Films – 207,000
Big D Videos – 120,000
Infinite Delusion Paintball – 44,000
Social Paintball – 27,000
Paintball Kuwait – 12,000
Vimeo – 7,000
That is pretty crazy. Thanks to all my friends and fans who have shared, supported and watched my videos!
BBoy Psycho aka Moath of Electrik Crew stopped by my place and we talked about why he BBoys and what the BBoy scene in Kuwait is like right now. He also showed me some of his sweet moves which you will see on display here. Hope you enjoy it.
With a massive dust storm still clearing up 965 Crew’s Doss felt the need to head down to Marina Waves and dance on the Edge Of Kuwait. He did two completely different dances in one take. They were so good I had to use them both. The first is snappier while the second is smoother. You decide which you like. Either way they look damn good. He took the time to say a few words to those who help keep dance alive too. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Qusai, France’s BBoy Lamine and surprisingly me. Thanks Doss and thanks to everyone who supports our work like Handbook, Mark, Caeser, Qusai, Lamine and of course you the fans and our friends all over the world!
