When it comes to paperclips, they’re often only known for their functional and practical use. But these paperclip creations are a great representation of how these ordinary items have been used in another inventive way. Using such a widely known brand name as “Porsche” as an inspiration.

Modern day engineered designs derive their influence from all sorts of ordinary mundane items, and can transform such things as these ordinary paperclips, into something modern and visually compelling, such as the well-recognized Porsche 911 shape.

Something you would want at your desk? I know I would.

That lovely, sexy, streamlined 911 silhouette! … a marvelous home or office gift.

DOCUMENTARY FILM OCT 15TH, 2012: Meet MAGNUS WALKER – Urban Outlaw, rebel Porsche Customizer

Urban Outlaw

A portrait of Magnus Walker, the rebel Porsche customizer who turned a hobby into an obsession, and an obsession into a successful business.

,,,a sample of Magnus Walkers Porsche collection (photos by Magnus, collage created by dede seward)

From a workshop in downtown Los Angeles, Magnus obsessively harvests fragments from donor 911s, grafting them onto vintage frames to create one-of kind automobiles with the spirit of Ferdinand Porsche but an ethos entirely his own.

ABOUT Magnus Walker:

My love affair with PORSCHE began as a 10 year old kid, and a trip to the 1977 LONDON motor show.

That is where I laid my eyes upon a 77-930 Martini TURBO!
As a kid growing up in SHEFFIELD-ENGLAND Porches were not a common sight. Sure I had the TURBO poster on my wall, lusted after one, and even wrote a letter to the Porsche factory!

Hey… They even wrote back!
Saying words to the affect “give us a call back when you are older”.

Fast forward a few years, and in 1986 at the age of 19 I moved to America and started a new life in LOS ANGELES..

At the age of 25 in 1992 I acquired my first 911, now almost 20 years later and over 40 -911 cars later I am living my PORSCHE dream.

I have done some club racing and instructing with the POC throughout the past 10 years. Over the past few years I have been expanding my 64-73 early car collection and have been building quite a few “sports purpose” R -ST inspired streetable track type cars.

My builds are starting to gain world wide attention, and a few unique touches such as my grafted R turn signals, louvered deck lids, drilled door handles and attention to detail to name a few are becoming my “signature marks”.

LONDON CALLING……..

Its official URBAN OUTLAW short documentary film
accepted into the RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in London.

Urban Outlaw | Raindance Film Festival 2012

“The film, a passion project, would never have been funded in the traditional studio system.  Through word of mouth, enthusiasts, bloggers and journalist, we have built a global fan base, our fans are passionate, and we don’t want to make them wait any longer.”  – Tamir Moscovici

Supplemental,…In association with MOS MEDIA, INDUSTRY FILMS & MAGNUSWALKER911.COM

is proud to announce the release of URBAN OUTLAW. URBAN OUTLAW

will be distributed & released worldwide online via Reelhouse.org.

  RELEASE DATE: Oct 15 2012  

Since the trailer was released in late May of 2012 it obtained over a 1.2 million click throughs.  The initial intent was to submit the film to festivals.  Since submitting the film to festivals and competitions the film has won a prestigious Award of Merit from the Best Shorts Competition, for short documentary.  The film is schedule to debut in London at the Raindance Film Festival on Sept. 28 2012and will play in Atlanta and Edmonton shortly there after.

While the film continues to navigate the festival circuit, Tamir & Magnus have decided that limiting the viewership to select cities, with limited seating, would be the wrong choice for the film. .  Following  Raindance the film will be made available online.

“The film, a passion project, would never have been funded in the traditional studio system.  Through word of mouth, enthusiasts, bloggers and journalist, we have built a global fan base, our fans are passionate, and we don’t want to make them wait any longer. “  – Tamir Moscovici 

We’ve opted to go with Reelhouse.org, a new platform for film audiences.  Knowing that we were going to release the film globally we wanted a platform that could create a theatrical experience that was intimate.  Reelhouse is more then a micro site, or faceless link for audiences to view.

Through Reelhouse.org viewers can reach out toMagnus Walker and to the filmmaker.  In the spirit of Louis C.K., and the filmmakers behind Press Pause Play, this is a new age in filmmaking, let’s cut out the distributors, studios and marketers.  Let good film connect with an audience, and let that audience connect with the filmmakers.

If the audience likes the film, they can support the filmmakers.  In short, let’s continue down the path of accessible art for the masses.
