Hey folks! This Saturday we’ve got TWO awesome events. We’d love for you to join us!

If you’re more of an early bird or into activism or want your shot in front of the camera, come up to Harlem for Miles Megaciph‘s “War” video shoot directed by Rocka Bennett! You might recognize Miles from our video for Genesis Be’s “Cold Eyes” – now’s the time for his own video.

We’re shooting from 8am-3pm up at Employment Technology Center (304-318 West 117th Street, betw 8th and 9th Ave).

If you want to be featured, show up early. To take part in the Peace Rally, wear all black and show up before noon. Oh and did I mention FREE food?

Bring 2 friends and get a free pass to Miles Megaciph’s upcoming album (“Migration of the Souled Kind”) release party this spring!

Click here for the track and here for more info


If you’re more of a night owl and want to party, come get your drink on at the Teen Girl Scientist Monthly EP Release Party!

So later that night, come out to Brooklyn (13 Thames St, off the Morgan L stop) for TWO sets of music, live projections AND a screening of our video for RiverStomp directed by Max S Pham.

For $3 at the door you get a reduced EP price, sweet tunes and FREE beer all night! What’s not to love? More details and FB info here!


It’s like the flyers were MADE to match or something.

Video #17 – “Cold Eyes” by Genesis Be

December 8, 2010 2 comments

If you didn’t make it out to the show last night, no worries, there’s plenty more to come from the talented Genesis Be.

2010 has been a crazy year for this Reynolds Scholarship for Social Entrepreneurship and NIA award winning artist from NYU’s Clive Davis School of Recorded Music. 2011 is sure to bring even more great music and collaboration from Genesis and the rest of the Open Sky Artworks crew. Stay tuned!

Here’s a video for “Cold Eyes” a hip hop song with some heavy personal history and biting rhymes. With the detail oriented camera work of John McMinn and edited by Kevin Chew, we wanted to highlight the song’s (and Genesis’s) journey. Check it.

Special thanks to Auzriel and Andrea Dao Wong.

December is for the music!

Green, our new favorite color

Spent the afternoon/evening shooting what will surely be one of our weirdest videos yet. Lots of ghetto/glitchy green screen work for a song off of Teen Girl Scientist Monthly frontman, Matt roi Berger‘s Song Cycle project – 52 weeks in the year, 52 songs in the year. Sound familiar eh?

Anyway, as always, had a great time working with Matt and our boy Mike Raynes stepping back behind the camera. This time involved hanging in the West Village, building a makeshift green screen set in Matt’s basement, and leaving with lungs full of dust and chroma-key green aerosol fumes. Awesome.
