Summer Fun: Dances of Vice II

Dances of Vice II

This weekend I am shooting at the Dances of Vice II festival, a three-day costume party that should be good times for Victorian/Steampunk fans. I am not particularly into this kind of scene, but I do like checking out interesting fashion and I am psyched about shooting Voltaire‘s performance and interview.

…This event reminds me of that film (can’t remember the name and it’s driving me crazy) about the young man who is a tenacious reporter in like the 80’s or 90’s, but dresses and behaves like he’s from the 20’s. He gets into all these funny situations and relates to everyone as if they are in his time period. His girlfriend gets fed up and breaks up with him because he is such an extreme & old fashioned gentlemen that he won’t even kiss her.

Oh God, not being able to remember the name of this film is going to drive. me. nuts. Someone, help!

Summer Fun: All Points West Festival

This past Saturday I shot interviews at All Points West Festival with the festival organizers, Kings of Leon, The Roots, The Virgins, Animal Collective, Jessica Stam, Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szhor, and Chromeo.

APW is inspired by the historical events that occurred at Liberty State Park, Ellis Island and the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal (CRRNJ) located on the festival site. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the now abandoned Central Railroad Station at Liberty State Park served as the gateway for immigrants on their journey into the United States as they embarked across the country to ALL POINTS WEST.

Here is the package that came out of our shoot:
