Daily Dose “The Rough Cut”

“The rough cut is where the magic happens.” We all experience struggles with being creative, believing in ourselves, and finding the best language to share our ideas. There’s an infinite battle between the concept in our minds and what gets put to paper. This short is all about the creative process, and how vulnerable we are as artists.

Because this is a universal experience, we connected with friends from around the world and enlisted their help in telling this story. Oh, and we also used their true voices in the voiceover.”

Daily Dose “The Hidden Life of Rosa Parks”

With the unrest in America lately it’s great to know the history and appreciate the progress we do have and how important it is to never give up until we have true “equality” for all.

“Throughout her life, Rosa Parks repeatedly challenged racial violence and the prejudiced systems protecting its perpetrators. But this work came at an enormous risk – and a personal price.”

In this chaotic world, it’s pretty hard to be calm and happy. But listening to one of the wisest mind could help. This is a personal project I’m working on during my spare time based on The Dalai Lama’s speech on how to be happy.

All done by me.

Daily Dose “Adidas Superstar 50th”

“It’s already been 50 years since the streetwear legend Adidas Superstar was born. It seems like a good moment to remember its bright game-changing, team-working spirit.

We were invited to participate in this celebration under the executive creative direction of Hypebeast’s Enric Soldevila and The Others’s production, who asked us to direct this film belonging to the Superstar’s 50th Anniversary Campaign.”

Daily Dose “Godfather of Harlem Title Sequence”

“The Godfather of Harlem main title is an homage to the contemporaneous collages created by African-American artist, Romare Bearden (1911–1988), during 1960s Harlem. He is best known for his photomontage compositions made from torn images of popular magazines and assembled into visually powerful statements on African-American life. We felt his art was appropriate to the show because it shared themes and portrayals of social inequality and the African-American experience that the show similarly explores.”
