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.

Video #28 (Version 2.0) – “War” by Miles Megaciph (Alt. Version)

Throw up your twos! “Hands in the air…”

Remember when I said “War” was worth listening to twice? Well apparently I wasn’t the only one who felt that way. Here at Project 30 in 30, we’re all about people getting creative, experimenting and trying new things. So when the DP mentioned he wanted to take a turn at editing, who was I to deny that? What we have here is a gritty, ensemble featuring, alternative version to this video edited by David Dubuc.

So here it is, check out “War” by Miles Megaciph (Alt. Version).

Sweet.

A song even Dad could get behind

I’m so proud to finally announce the video for Miles Megaciph’s “War.” This one has been a long time coming. Some of you might remember the shoot way back in December. It was one of our most challenging and certainly featured our biggest cast. Miles Megaciph is definitely one to look out for. With his hard-hitting lyrics and imposing presence, it’s tough to not want to join the movement.

I actually encourage you to watch this one twice. First time around you can really appreciate the vintage rap style exemplified by cinematographer David Dubuc’s camera work and editor Orlando Suazo’s raw cutting. Not to mention the rough (and all too appropriate) art direction by newcomer Anteequa Washington. Through it all, take in Director, Rocka Bennett’s storytelling – this is a mini film after all. On second viewing, strip away the genre, the choreography/coordination, the art direction, the projections, the incredibly catchy rhythm – and listen to the words. “War” is relatable with universally understood messages and emotions. I’ll let the track speak for itself on this.

Featuring a cast of many, Jaelen M. Ferrebee, Zakiryah Griffins, Avon JanusKiewicz, JJ Jones, Clinton Lowe, Charles Vorkas, Anteequa Washington, Lloyd Williams and more. Much thanks to our additional crew: Jorge Garza, Albert Gea, and JJ Jones.

Oh what a night!

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:
