Damn Joan // School Shootings Video

We recently had Damn Joan with Gay Against Guns in our studios shooting a video about the recent and prominent issue of gun violence in our school's across America. 

"In partnership with Gays Against Guns and our graceful director Sara Nell McDowell, you helped create a moving piece that brings forth the alarming prevalence of school gun violence in this country, while also holding space for those who have lost their lives to it on this this powerful day -- April 20th, 2018. 

This was made in honor of the 19th anniversary of Columbine and in action with today's National School Walkout, just 64 days after Parkland. " - Lauren Teng & The Damn Joan Family

Glam Shoot // Winky Lux

Recently,  Winky Lux, the indie beauty brand based out of the Lower East Side, here in NYC, had their second shoot in our studios with photographer Matt Coch. They had a furry pal to help market their new launch of the 'Kitten Palette.' We had a quick chat with the creative director, Kate Fernandez about the magic that went in to bringing this campaign to life. 

1. What was the direction or end goal you had for this project?

Kate: Introducing the Kitten Palette - super luxe, super fabulous, super pink. 

2. What was your favorite part of the production?

Kate: Definitely our cat model Dahlia -- the cat had to listen to classical music to get in the zone!

3. Go to equipment or camera for this project?

Kate: Matt shoots with a Canon 1DS. We used the lighting available to us from the studio as well as a pink seamless you had available.

Now for the fun part- check out the the star kitty & some BTS shots!

 

Azaelia Banks // Complex Media

Complex Media Presents

Azealia Banks

As is tradition, when a new year comes, new resolutions do too. Many resolutions have to do with working out more or eating healthier, all of which in turn help with one's overall mental health. With these thoughts in mind we wanted to highlight a recent project shot by Complex Media at our stages. The video is an eight minute introspective on the world-renowned recording artist Azealia Banks. The piece goes into detail about the limelight that sometimes prevents superstars like herself from being seen as a ‘real person’. This limelight places stars like her in a place where fans may forget that these artists also go through the same day to day struggles as us, as well as some different ones that fans may not be aware of at all. Due to the constant microscope on their daily affairs and pressure to be perfect, as well as constantly pushing out new, riveting work, the burden on these artists is very real. Azealia and the video itself come across as very raw, as you see wide shots of our NYC studio space and the equipment used, while the artist goes into harsh detail about her hardships to find proactive ways to push her mental health forward in a positive way. Her music comes across as very strong and happy, but as stated, she is nothing more than a flawed human like the rest of us. We absolutely love this piece and the new perspective it sheds on not only her life but a lot of entertainment industry big shots lives’. 

In summation, Azealia states “Every day is a difficult time, I’m Azealia Banks.” Thank you to Complex Media for choosing our film production studio, and a big thank you to Azealia for being so honest with the public about such a sensitive subject. We hope each and everyone of you is able to conquer your 2018 resolutions for a better outlook and overall life.

Best of 2017 // Music Video Features

Best of 2017 // Music Video Features

A quick feature on two music videos shot at our studios that made huge leaps and bounds in the music and video world in 2017.

Drive-In Music Video

Street level access means more than just a super efficient load-in and load-out. You can drive right onto our Cyc and use the car as a prop. Recently Eleven 7 Music was in the studio shooting a music video for one of their artists new singles set for release next month. The crew brought in a Dodge Challenger which was already pretty cool. Throw in some dancing, a projector, and some fast music and this video was looking pretty hot.
