Our Boys Shoot Big Boi

Check out the performance tonight, 9:30pm EST via Rolling Stone’s live stream.

A Night with Inner-City Filmmakers

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.

Just For Laughs

Where were you yesterday at 1:30 pm (Central)? Well… if you were in Chicago’s Millennium Park, you may have seen an outrageously awesome social experiment organized by Tyler Walker, of Improv Everywhere  in conjunction with TBS. As a publicity stunt to kick off the Just for Laughs event on TBS this week, an “MP3 Experiment” took place that lasted about 30 minutes. Participants were told to download a song via their respective mp3 players. Utilizing one DVC Pro HD and a couple of flip cams, various shooters captured this hilarious footage.

Suzie Moore edited the footage together and Megan Guerrant produced. They wrapped at about 11:30 lastnight and it’s live today! Talk about a quick turn around. I think my favorite part has to be when this “mysterious voice” actually got a mob of people to use their finger’s as moustaches! Brilliant!

Blissful Buzz

Foundation Audio Engineer, Ryan Pribyl recently collaborated with composers Elliot Hunt and Daniel Alcheh, of Alcheh & Hunt,  on the score for indie film East Fifth Bliss, starring Dexter’s Michael C. Hall, Lucy Liu, Peter Fonda and Brie Larson.

The music was recorded at multiple studios in both Chicago and LA and mixed in 5.1 surround by Ryan and Eliot at our Chicago office’s audio suite.

The film premiered just last month at the Newport Beach Film Festival and was chosen to headline the festival out of 450 participating films from all over the world.

We were thrilled to be a part of this film and hope you will take a minute to check out the movie site, which features some of the music.
