Erik Otto vs. JMZ Train

Brian Chu

Erik Otto was in NYC recently so we took the time to film a short video of him racing the JMZ train on the Williamsburg Bridge. Nothing beats riding into Manhattan because it’s scenic and it’s often times faster than taking the train. When it approaches, the whole bridge shakes and you feel the energy of the trains through your body. It’s common to look over and see people in the train looking at you – on both ends thinking…

Getaway: Tiny Cabins in the Catskills

Brian Chu

Getaway has tiny cabins tucked away in the Catskills which is just a few hours outside of NYC. It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of living in cities, so we took a mid-week break to check out the surrounding areas. We loaded the Zipcar up with mostly camera gear (some clothes/snacks) and left from Brooklyn on our way upstate. Before we knew it, we started to get the small town vibes of New York. There were…

Deluxe: Number 22

Terry Barentsen

Deluxe and Number 22 are two names that we were quickly familiarized with as soon as NY became our new home. Deluxe is a beautiful bike shop run out of Bedstuy by our friend Wilis. Not only do they carry a healthy stock of Number 22 frames, but Wilis also happens to be a part of the Number 22 team. So of course it only made sense for us to collaborate on a video capturing Wilis shredding his Number 22 Little Wing. What…

NOSAJ THING x DAITO MANABE at Williamsburg Music Hall

Brian Chu

Got the chance to link up with NOSAJ THING x DAITO MANABE at Williamsburg Music Hall on their NO REALITY TOUR. The show is an audio/visual experience that uses augmented reality, 3D scanning, and motion capture technology. They just got off the plane from Coachella and headed straight to the venue for soundcheck. As I got to the venue, everyone was busy setting up. The crew plugging away on their computers, looking at complex programs, and glimpses of visuals began…

Erik Otto Video: From One Place to the Next

Brian Chu

This recent Erik Otto video was shot a few months ago, during a very rainy SF El Nino weekend. It was towards the end of December and we were all eager to have content ready to launch for the New Year. Erik especially had a lot going on: a new studio renovation, new work, and constantly out exploring the city. We had talked about filming another video for some time and wanted to center it around the next phase/chapter in…

Analog Almanac: January-February

Terry Barentsen

It’s been a few since we posted an Analog Almanac. This was our first winter in New York. We endured the blizzard known as Jonas, flew to San Francisco to escape the snowfall in New York, then took a road trip to chase the snow fall in Wyoming. Here’s a few snaps from some of our travels in no particular order. These photos were shot with a Hasselblad Xpan and Nikon Lite Touch using Kodak Elite 100. Analog Almanac

Crashing Hotels “Never More” Music Video

Brian Chu

This past summer we filmed our 3rd music video “Never More” with Crashing Hotels. The video was shot in NYC (around SOHO) during a warm weekend. We met up at the park in the morning for a quick chat before making our way through the streets. Most of it was storyboarded out, but you can only plan so much because of how we were tackling this video. Multiple takes that were going well had to be re-filmed to get because…

Crashing Hotels: Innately Tuned

Brian Chu

After years of working with AO Anderson of Crashing Hotels, I finally got a chance to interview him in this recap video titled: “Innately Tuned.” I went over to his house one evening and recorded a quick conversation about everything that’s been happening in our lives. What came from it is this piece that gives an insight to how he started playing music, and the making of the recent music video we shot in Las Vegas. It also includes footage…

Hello New York

Terry Barentsen

Hello from New York. Brian and I made the move to New York with plans to pick up some East coast flavor. Since then we’ve been meeting a ton of inspiring people, eating fewer burritos, and shooting a lot of stills. Here’s a few from my go to cameras: Fuji GA 645, Mamiya 7ii, and Fuji X100T using Kodak Portra 400 & Ilford HP5. Hello New York
