AsylumArtists.com presents Archie Alleyne and The EOJ Ensemble @ Asylum Studio

[youtube clip_id=”5LG9H1dAouk”]
On December 2nd,2010 Asylum Artists held a Jazz night with Toronto Jazz Legend Archie Alleyne and his Evolution of Jazz Ensemble. Over the fall months we were busy producing, and developing a website for the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF). Through our efforts with the website, social media, and the jazz night we were able to help raise over $7000 for the fund, and 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.

Canadian Icon: Rick Mercer

Before the holidays, we were lucky enough to have Rick Mercer drop by the studio to snap a few portraits for our on going
personal project of Canadian Icons. Thanks Rick!

Happy New Year !

Happy New Year Everyone! Welcome 2011,
We hope you all had a fun and relaxing holidays.
We just wanted to update you guys on our AASF launch party in December.
It was a huge success!! We raised over $7000 for the fund, and we are so happy to be a part of it!

Here are some shots of the night, with a video soon to come!

Cheers,

Scott’s New Digital Doings


Cadillac CTS-V 2011 @ Big Bay Point Rd.

I went out before most of the leaves were gone in Northern Ontario and shot some backplates and HDR spheres for cg car visualization.


Mercedes GLK-350 @ The Docks, Toronto

There was a big rain storm two weeks ago, and since it wasn’t too cold I seized the opportunity to get some great backplates and hdr spheres with lots of light reflections, and ground details.

Mercedes GLK-350 through Tunnel , HDR and backplate provided my MAground

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!

This was one of the latest projects we have completed for Grip Limited. It involved a walk and talk scene through the U of T campus. We used a Steadicam rig with the Sony EX1 to achieve this scene.
