We hosted an “on-site art intervention” in our Culver City studio on the occasion of visionary Peter Noever’s guest lecture and workshop at SCI-Arc on December 9th. With some of the top creative minds from Culver City’s Conjunctive Points on hand, the ideas, chilli and wine flowed. Enjoy this piece created by Samantha Hart and edited by James Lipetzky.

Check out WOW Magazine‘s spread on Aaron Brown in their Summer 2011 issue. Copies of the issue are available online.
The 12 page article features Aaron’s photography and thoughts on the artistic and cultural underbelly of Los Angeles. “A lot of all kinds of weird, scary, hysterical things happen in LA at every instant,” Aaron says in the interview, “As a result there’s all kinds of different work happening.”
It’s an interesting article, well worth the read, and Aaron’s photographs look great. Definitely “wow” provoking!

Foundation L.A. recently hosted a roundtable discussion for an audience of students and alumni from Inner-City Filmmakers, a nonprofit dedicated to training and employing disenfranchised high school grads. The panel – including DPs, editors, directors, Poolhouse producers, and our own James Lipetzky – covered everything from story development to hands-on practicalities of production.
It was a wonderful evening, everyone stayed late to share advice for the kids’ future collaboration with Nylon Studios, Kodak Film, and EKA Reps on the upcoming Pocket Fest film festival.
Special thanks to all the fantastic panelists who made the night possible: Jessica Cooper Carlson, Mary Ellen Duggan, Will Hartman, Barry Norwood, Robert Parker, Lyra Rider, Vicki Mayer, and James Lipetzky.

In Los Angeles, James Lipetzky directed a piece for United Way of Orange County. Shot over five days on location in Orange County, Foundation’s Evan Cohen pulled double duty on this shoot as both Line Producer and AD.
The shoot culminated with 50 people on the beach in Newport Beach. James Lipetzky commented; “I was deeply moved by some of the stories I encountered while on this shoot, of those helped by United Way. The work they do to help those in need really is exceptional.” Stay tuned for more on this piece in the future!
