Plungers

My three nieces do to the Polar Bear Plunge every New Year’s Day. They’ve all been involved for the past 6 years or so. It’s an event to raise funds for charities and help out those in need.  In 2016 we decided that it would be fun to make a short video to capture the spirit of the event. I’d like to share it again in 2018!

Happy New Year Friends!!!

Tom Morello at Occupy Wall Street

Tom Morello - Occupy Wall Street - 1

Today was a great day!  I was asked to take a break from my normal Assistant Editor duties, grab a camera and meet our small crew (DP and Audio Mixer) in Zucotti Park to shoot some live events unfolding.  So I got paid to videotape literally 1 to 4 feet away from Tom Morello for his entire acoustic set at OWS!  Got some great shots!  We shot on a Canon 5D and a GoPro.  The GoPro is cool, cause it’s like an HD spycam.  Shoots 1080p, but fits in the palm of my hand.  Most important thing is … my boss is VERY happy that we got a lot of great shots.  And seeing Tom perform live and up close was AWESOME!  Tom truly boosted the energy of the crowd in a good way.  Thanks Tom. 

Here are some still frames of footage that I shot today at OWS.

Fitz Henley on lyrics to EBT – NYC (Vimeo)

Two announcements.  One is that I created a channel on Vimeo.  The other is that the first short film I uploaded to Vimeo is “Fitz Henley On Lyrics to EBT” 

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/26171662[/vimeo]music videos short films

In my latest short film, Fitz Henley explores deeper meanings and spiritual themes in his hip hop lyrics.  Topics include, inner progression, living for fame vs living for nobility, music is a healing remedy, and of particular interest to people of African American descent is his discussion of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome.

After viewing this clip, you may be interested in watching it’s companion piece, “E.B.T. – N.Y.C” FITZ HENLEY AND AKKA (LIVE PERFORMANCE), which is a live performance of the song that Fitz Henley explores above.
