Asylum Shakes it down with Prox!

Shakedowns : Baby carrots with natural seasoning!

Last week we teamed up with Proximity, Ryan Malcolm (Canadian Idol Winner), Jeff Lurie and Carly Heffernan. Our mission was to take tweeted cravings and translate them into songs about shakedowns. We had to create 8 videos per day for a week and we will be on it again next week!

So stay tooned!

AASF.ca Website Launch and the EOJ Ensemble Jazz Night

[vimeo clip_id=”24824630″ width=”600″ height=””]

We put together a short video to finish off the launch of the website for the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF). Through our efforts with the website, social media, and the jazz night held on December 2nd, 2010 @ the Asylum Artists studio we were able to help raise over $7500 for the fund.  We are now able to help more underprivileged youth find a voice in the music community, and get the proper training that they need to get into post-secondary and to find their place in the world of music.

If you would like to help contribute to the fund visit www.aasf.ca for more information. Special thanks to all of our sponsors.

Proximity @ The Asylum Studio

Today we were working on an interactive production with Proximity. After a great morning of shooting, and some beautiful footage. We sat down and had a nice Italian meal before wrapping for the day. Nothing better than some fun and food.

My apologies to our Post Production Supervisor/ Sr. Editor Chris Reesor, I was so excited to get back to my plate. I didn’t frame him correctly. 1,2,3, CHEESE!
