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!

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!

Sultry singer/songwriter, KD Lang has a sexy new track called “I, Confess”, off her new album Sing It Loud, which debuts in April.
Focus Creeps recently directed the video, which was edited by Anna Patel. It premiered today on PerezHilton.com and is already an instant hit! Click the pic to check it out!
The track is beyond hot and Ms. Lang’s voice has never sounded more rich. I know I’m probably biased because it’s our video, but seriously… I would give this video four thumbs up if I had another set of hands!

Hot off the presses…literally! Focus Creeps have a new video for indie band, Arctic Monkeys. The song is “Brick by Brick” and it kills.
Edited by our own Gladys Bernadac, colored by Tom Rovak and mixed by Ryan Pribyl, this video was a true team effort. We’d also like to give a little shout out to Bernie Grundeman, who is featured in the video. Foundation owner, Samantha Hart, remembers the legendary mastering guru from back in the glory days of Geffen Records. Some things really do never change. Rock on!

Aaron Brown, of Focus Creeps, has another hot video in circulation! This one is for singer/songwriter Lia Ices. The video is for the song”Daphne”, off of her second album “Grown Unknown” and features a duet with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.
Spin recently posted the video which can be viewed by clicking the picture below:
The video is beautifully shot and Ices’ voice is like a fresh pearl plucked from the depths of the dark sea. Ices describes the video as going from a “supernatural world” to a “Fellini-esque nighttime revelry”. I ask you, what better revelry is there? Enjoy the video and pass it on!

Foundation clients A&I (Angela + Ithyle) presented a short film last night in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum during their popular Flux event. Also screening was the premiere of LOVED BY WATER, a poignant short film by Vince Haycock who is a friend of the Foundation family.
Foundation owner James Lipetzky with Focus Creep director Aaron Brown in front of the Billy Wilder Theatre.
In addition to special guests Angela + Ithyle and Vincent Haycock were Sophie Gateau (below is Foundation owner, Samantha Hart holding one of her creations) and Neistat Brothers, of the eponymous HBO series. The program also included new work from Spike Jonze, Aardman Animation, Kutiman and David Altobelli.
It was a very creative night and nice to see so many innovative and talented people sharing their work in such an awesome forum!
