Shot and Edited by me for DJ Steven S
Me and Ben Tifa recorded the happenings of the club last week and I edited all the shots with some help from my creative visionary partner Musso.
This is my first music video I created with the help of Disturb and IQdaWize.
The city skyline from rooftop in Astoria
Williamsburg, Brooklyn NY 8-7-13
On a cloudy afternoon, we grabbed some food from a nearby eatery. Walking towards the water we found a few benches.
We had lunch.
The Brooklyn park has many solar panels.
I wondered if this was dangerous. Untold danger. Conspiracy Theory Danger..
Windy Day in August.
He played with his mother. Ran on the grass. Explored the bench area. Found rocks. Threw rocks. Kept a rock.
Daddy took photos. Mommy helped. Mommy took photos. Daddy held.
They smiled, laughed, hugged and kissed. Parenting.
He yelled loudly releasing the air from his lungs and vocal chords. He was excited. Positive outlook. His parents listen to him. Cooperation.
"Windy Day in Willy B"
On Saturday, my good friend Musso asked me to go with him to Jersey and help him with a music video production project he had going on.
These are some photography stills from that day/evening when we shot the jacuzzi scene.
"Wake Up Brazil" July ‘13
July 11, 2013 - Union Square Park NYC
I try not to read the newspapers, unless Im working in a office, I try not to watch the news, unless Im in a room where I have no control of the remote. Its always Bad News, Nothing Good is ever mentioned. I lie, it is mentioned but its so minuscule in comparison to the amount of tragic news broadcasted.
I got word that at Union Square a protest would be going down. I grabbed my gear and took off with the hopes that the protest would give me good photographs.
When I got to Union Sq. It was exceptionally packed. I thought “everyone must be here for the protest”
But they weren’t, it was a beautiful day in NYC and everyone was just out sitting, people watching, playing chess, dancing, talking, walking by etc.
This protest group was organized on the side of the exit to the subway. It managed to get some attention.
People nowadays are more inclined to take action with a group with a cause that relates to them. More of a activist culture than past years.
They stood in a circle voicing their opinions, concerns, prayers and story with curious observers and people passing by. They placed and held signs, They waved flags.
They want Change.
They held a moment of silence for all humanity that has suffered a loss at the hands of war.
They lit candles.
(Let me be honest. You know what bothered me? Some people are down to hold the candle for the cause, but not put down the phone! - it just shows the lack of commitment.
What I am saying is not aimed at the person in the photograph above, Im using the image as a symbolic example.)
They laid on the floor covered in black bags as a tribute to the dead.
They took a stand.
(And maybe the stand would have been better in a predominant Brazilian Community where their voice could fall on ears that can relate.)
Because even tho They yelled, They laid, They displayed, They waved..
..THEY continued to play and go about their day.
"Nobody Cares" - Sonny, Bronx Tale.
My son on his phone during a trip to 5 ptz in Long Island City
Attempted a photoshoot but kids are hard to keep still
I managed to get him talking on his cellphone - I like to believe that he was talking to Fisher Price.
September 11, 2013 - View from the Polaski Bridge
