Day 30 – “Hey Hey” by The Graves

August 8, 2011 1 comment


And if you sing along with us, better give it all you’ve got!

And with this video, we come to the end of our 30 day journey. I hope you had as much fun watching these videos as we did making them. The amount of support and talent that has come out of this project is overwhelming.

At first we had some difficulty deciding what to do for this band that’s based way out West. Eventually I came up with this. This song is quite an anthem and I figured it would be a nice way to bring all of our artists together. Please enjoy “Hey Hey” by The Graves.

Once again, I’d like to thank all the artists and filmmakers who participated in this project.

What a fantastic night Tuesday! So many thanks to all of you who made it out to show your support. We seriously could not do this without each and every one of you. From day one, the goal has been to find artists who would never otherwise share a stage or a label or a fanbase and bring them all together in one space. To give our filmmakers and musicians the freedom to take risks and visualize music as they feel it. To let people discover music and their own personal connections to these songs.

Katra Lounge was PULSING with talent Tuesday night! To see some artists finally meet their editors and animators for the first time, to hear that some artists have videos lined up with their Project 30 in 30 directors in the future, to have this all come together under one roof is exactly why we began the project in the first place. I could not be more pleased and excited for what’s to come!

Stay tuned for the upcoming web premiere of videos for Miles Megaciph, Auzriel and The Graves.

In the mean time, enjoy the photos from this amazing night:

Video #20 – “Everybody Lies” by Melissa Lusk

January 9, 2011 2 comments

At long last, here’s a super cute video for a super cute song (with some quite uncute lyrics) – “Everybody Lies” by Melissa Lusk. Melissa found inspiration for the song in a story about two best friends, one with the odd superpower of never needing to sleep. Of course not sleeping has its consequences and the imaginations that would be the little boy’s dreams begin to manifest in his real life.

Taking this theme of dream and modified realities, director Max S Pham and co. have created a fun video that’s slightly off-kilter. Shot by Praveen Elankumaran, edited in part by Patrick Ng, with awesome dance sequences choreographed by Katie Lee Hill. Dancers: Kyle McCoy, Emma Koenig, David Isaacs, Rachel “Fuck Me Ray Bradbury” Bloom, and Matt roi Berger

Video #18 – “RiverStomp” by Teen Girl Scientist Monthly

“I will go down with this ship…”

Well we’ve finally come to the end of our voyage, or at least with this video. This one was definitely a PROJECT. Had a lot of fun doing some animation work and shooting out in Prospect Park. Great job on all counts! Featuring the director/cinematographer team of Max S Pham and Richard Trammell, AD Ellen Schneider always keeping us on track, G&E Vincenzo Ferriero, editor Jacqueline Sia, and a boat built by TGSM themselves, this was definitely a group effort. Thanks to Melissa Lusk for picking up the slack on all else on set.

Here’s a whimsical video for Teen Girl Scientist Monthly’s “RiverStomp”

Don’t forget to stop by TGSM’s EP release party Saturday, December 18 at #13 Thames St, Brooklyn (9pm) to see the show AND a screening of our video.
