Ignacio Nacho Figueras: A Caballo

Ignacio Nacho Figueras: A Caballo

A Caballo is a new film from Nowness by photographer and filmmaker Matthew Donaldson, who celebrates the raw power of man and beast by capturing Nacho Figueras on one of his favorite horses in minute detail.  The polo champion spins a sumptuous 180 in Donaldson’s slow-motion epic.  The bronzed Argentine horsemen that swarm Long Island’s polo fields each summer are tall, dark, handsome and, with the globe-trotting, sun-chasing lifestyle their sport afford, indecently glamorous.  The most storied of all these Latin gods is Ignacio (Nacho) Figueras, who with his chiseled jaw, moody brown eyes and tousled locks is not only one of the world’s top 100 polo players, but the face of Ralph Lauren Black Label and Polo fragrances worldwide, and, according to a 2009 issue of Vanity Fair, the second most handsome man in the world.  Born in Argentina, where polo rivals soccer as the national sport, Figueras began playing at the age of eight and became a professional at 17.

He began his secondary career as a model in 2000 after being introduced to legendary fashion photographer Bruce Weber at a dinner party, and found that his raised profile enabled him to be an ambassador in the democratization of polo.  He was the brains behind the annual Veuve Cliquot tournament on Governor’s Island that has introduced the sport to a whole new generation of New Yorkers.

Charlie Vinkham Discovers His Superpower: It’s Pecunia Olet!

Charlie Vinkham Discovers His Superpower: It’s Pecunia Olet!

Dollar Bill is a very funny one-minute short film by Marco Aslan, in which our enterprising hero Charlie Vinkham discovers his amazing superpower.  It’s Pecunia Olet, the Smell of Money (or maybe Smelly Money), which coincidentally is the same superpower shared by pornstars, prostitutes and corporate bigwigs.

Wild Wind: The Eternally Holy Triumph of Rabid Possum Hair

Wild Wind: The Eternally Holy Triumph of Rabid Possum Hair

Wild Wind is a 2-min. short flash movie directed by 21-year-old Leonardo Campasso, an animator in Buenos Aires.  The animated short was an experiment by Campasso that combines pixel-style characters with traditional cartoon animation principles. The results are a lot of fun and prove that one need not necessarily associate pixel animation with stilted, boring movement.  Campasso claims that he created Wild Wind in his spare time, but I personally think he made it during the many days he was probably incarcerated in Buenos Aires’ Holy Sistine Chapel of Bad Hair.  But as for me, I ought to consider myself a pretty lucky guy, since I never cared much about my hair, however short or long it was.  But if you do, then you might easily empathize with the plight of the poor fellow in this humorous short animation.
