San Francisco is lovely, but New York City has won over our hearts, particularly the Bushwick area, in Brooklyn. We were lucky to stay in an industrial area frequented and inhabited by creatives, specifically in a notorious apartment, the 'Sky Fortress'. Our hosts were an amazing group of individuals who welcomed us with open arms and whose artistic and travelling endeavours are thoroughly inspiring. They and their friends (Stephanie, and 'The Brians', Brian and Brian being the most memorable of these satellite friends) hosted a BBQ and movie night on their building's rooftop, which provides a 360 degree view of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline. Unbelievable.
We're hoping to return to the Sky Fortress next year to work on a few projects - we'll be back!
AIRBORNE \\ updates - NEW YORK CITY : Joe Blossom
We had a week to capture the spirit of New York City, and our keywords for this video (as pitched by Joe Blossom) were 'Nostalgia' and 'Abstract'. We filmed the bustling, humid city in the magical light of twilight as well as in Subway stations, and on the rooftop of the Sky Fortress. We captured snippets of New York wherever we went, from Williamsburg to Midtown and we are looking forward to editing our music video postcard together.
SAN FRANCISCO : Louis Baker
What a whirlwind! We had 24 hours to film this video - and San Francisco gave us fog, clouds, bright sunshine and even a hummingbird. The colourful, stand-alone houses and the summer chill on the other coastline of the USA provided such a contrast to our New York experience. We were lucky enough to participate in working on part of a decorative piece that will be featured as a shrine at the Burning Man festival this year, and that will be burned right underneath the Burning Man. Such a creative ebb and flow to this hilly, foggy city.
MORE SOON! We're getting very excited that we've wrapped our filming and will be able to get our music video postcards out by MID AUGUST >>
