Carbon – Sunday Round Up

Sunday was kinda struggle street, hanging out with Days, Steve Cross, Dboe and the Phable jeans guys on Saturday night took it’s toll after we blazed through the Adidas party. There were a bunch of internationals in the house, including the 1xRun guys from the States and the UK’s very own Insa, who seemed pretty happy to scribble in Martha Cooper’s black book…

Andrew Montell kicked off the days proceedings with an account of his student-style living during the formative years of Acclaim and the subsequent trials and errors in the production process. It was interesting to see how he refined the product and led on well to Jeff Hamada’s speech about appealing to markets. Hamada was funny, inspiring and brilliant, giving a great insight into his creative ideas and personality, which is probably one of the main reasons for www.booooooom.com’s huge success.

Eddie Huang’s presentation was lively, informed and political. He came through with a few resonating messages about people power and disarming corporations through the removal of support – i.e. voting with your feet. His intelligent voice cut through a lot of the fluff that surrounded some of the other speakers, even if it did get a little Black Panthers at times.

The final forum of the weekend included two of the most hotly anticipated guests of the weekend, Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant. The seminal duo were joined by Crack & Shine’s Will Robson-Scott. The photographic trio were a great finale for the event and Robson-Scott really held his own against Martha and Henry.

His talk was lively, amusing and socially critical – touching on themes of unfair jail time for graffiti writers and an interesting take on film vs. digital photography: “It’s like the vinyl versus cd debate…” he quipped, when Martha tried to put him in his place with her obvious experience and current preference for digital (most notably her recent instagram addiction).

All in, Andrew and the rest of the Carbon crew did an amazing job pulling in such a great line-up and putting on an awesome event. Massive respect and big ups to Bella, Edwina and the guys for all their hard work. Definitely one for the diary next year.
