BYT Journal, a new hub for creative experimentation, premiered its inaugural project this week on HYPEBEAST, “The Dual”, a study in mixed perspectives. The series challenges two filmmakers to film the same subject and create films that showcase their unique perspectives. For the first installment, creatives Harrison Boyce and Daniel Navetta went on a journey to document one of the last remaining Drag Racing tracks in the northeast United States.
An intimate glimpse into the ailing sport of quarter-mile drag racing, Island Dragway in New Jersey provides the backdrop for this entertaining storytelling that lives harmoniously, side by side. In addition, the photography of Nicholas Maggio adds another magnetic layer to the project, punctuating an already dynamic initial offering from BYT Journal. The project was executive produced by Daniel Navetta of Bryght Young Things, you can see more of their work at BYT.NYC
