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

Crashing Hotels Music Video

Brian Chu

We’ve been working on Crashing Hotels’ Music Video for the single “Could Ever Be True” and could not be more excited to share all the hard work. This video was shot a week before I moved to NYC, and we knew the only way to pull this off would be to pick a destination while filming along the way. Vegas was the best option – and it provided the perfect backdrop for the look and feel we wanted this video…

Ferris Plock: Inside Voices

Ferris Plock: Inside Voices Inside Voices. The two opposing sides of the brain often are in conflict with each other. Their two distinct points of view often collide with a compromise coming only when blood has been spilled and beers have been opened. —Ferris Plock This video project was originally part of an installation to accompany Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock’s work in their third solo show with the gallery entitled “Inside Voices”. The opening reception was held on Friday,…

Black Scale Video Lookbook

Brian Chu

This year’s Black Scale Video Lookbook video features model Hugo Lopez and was shot again in San Francisco, CA. The concept behind these videos are usually based on Black Scale’s revolving them of balance, and how each person interprets it. The unique part about these videos is that they are loosely scripted and involve a decent amount of improvisation. This gives you a lot of room to experiment with each location. They’re usually parts of San Francisco that are unique…

Escape From Alcatraz, San Francisco

Brian Chu

Escape From Alcatraz contains a series images I captured during my visit to San Francisco’s famous landmark. It’s been a while since I took a trip there and I wanted to visit the @Large by Ai Weiwei exhibit that was happening. Alcatraz is strange because tons of tourist flock to this island where our most dangerous inmates were once kept. Now it attracts people from all over the world to see this prison that remained more or less unchanged. The…
