Improv Everywhere

Improv Everywhere is a constant source of inspiration for me. They are the guys organizing huge collaborative happenings in public spaces (mostly NY). You probably saw them “frozen” in Grand Central Station. Their latest project is not their most successful work to date (largely due to the rain) but I am amazed and inspired by the sheer number of people excited to come together for the sake of creating something (even in the rain).

The goal this time was to send flashes of light across the Brooklyn Bridge! 700 people showed up and lined the bridge!

Take a look at the video to see how they did!

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
