Aaron Brown WOWs L.A.

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!

New Video from Arctic Monkeys

Well, I know of no better way to start the weekend off right than with this awesome new video for Arctic Monkeys’ song “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala”. Click the pic to view the video.

This piece was directed  by Focus Creeps and edited by Foundation’s Gladys Bernadac.  It was lensed  over the course of a few months at various iconic locations in Los Angeles, their Hollywood Paladium show, our LA stage and even includes footage shot in Sheffield, at the band’s homecoming concert. If you are an Arctic Monkeys fan, this video is a treat not to be missed!

America, the Beautiful

The new video for DOM’s “Living in America” debuts today. Click below to see it live on Vevo.

Another great piece by Focus Creeps. Edited by the lovely Gladys Bernadac with awesome blurs by Jenn Moody. Nice work here from everyone. This video makes me… proud to be an American.

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!

How’s the Weather?

Though it’s been unusually cool in Chicago these days, our L.A. office has been heating up. Check out this latest project we worked on with the folks from High Wide and Handsome.  Working with Production Company Chromatic Films and director James Tooley, we put together these spoof Weather forecast spots for “Rift”, a new video game by Trion.  These are the web spots but they also finished for Broadcast and are airing on SyFy, FX, and G4!

Anna Patel edited all the spots while Jamin Clutcher handled the graphics.  Color by Tom Rovak, audio mix by Ryan Pribyl, and produced by Stacy Paris; as always, a true team effort from our brilliant staff.

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.
