TIMBRRR! Winter Music Festival year two was even better than year one (which set the bar high.) Friday night popped with a variety of fresh sounds from new wave to hip hop while Saturday night finished with a solid bang with the two-punch of Hobosexual followed by headliner headbangers Red Fang. Leavenworth was lovely, as always, and the waather gave us snow when and where we wanted it and left the roads clear. Thank you Kevin, Phil and Chad at Artist Home!

film // First Night Tacoma

First Night is always one of our favorite nights in Tacoma—downtown Tacoma is alive and kicking all night with amazing music, surprises around every corner, and a palpable, carnivalesque atmosphere. Here’s a little film we put together, putting the evening into a visual nutshell.

What a way to celebrate…Happy New Year!

Original poster art for another fantastic music festival—music, snow, and more music in the Bavarian-rich Leavenworth, Wash.  There’s some heavy hitters on this bill and all in a really unique setting.

We had such an amazing time at TIMBER! Outdoor Music Festival this year—including, but not limited to: (1) sitting front-and-center through J Mascis‘ mind-altering set, (2) watching Damien Jurado‘s gorgeous set from our tent, (3) the Milky Way overhead, (4) swimming in the river with good friends, (5) feeling a world away in Tolt-MacDonald Park, and (6) spending the weekend with some of our favorite people and artists. Thank you Kevin, Phil and Chad at Artist Home! Photos are below and films are to come…!

poster // Tacoma Film Festival

As passionate filmmakers and cinephiles, we felt very much in our essence creating the poster for this year’s Tacoma Film Festival.  For the art, we wanted to play with the escapist whimsy of cinema to create a surreal design, one that was inspired by the interaction of light with space but—like a good film—is imbued with some added layers of visual meaning pertaining to both cinema and Tacoma.

epicurean film // Gun Bun x BUNK

We took a day trip down to Portland, Oregon to catch up with Huichica Music Festival co-founder and Fruitbats frontman Eric D. Johnson and Portland’s famous BUNK Sandwiches chef Tommy Habetz.  The two talked endlessly about their mutual love for sandwiches and rock and roll—we managed to capture a few tidbits along with details on Tommy’s sandwich pairing with Gundlach Bundschu’s Mountain Cuvée wine at this year’s upcoming Huichica Music Festival.

wedding film // Get Hitched Give Hope : 2013

Our own wedding division The Heart Dept. loved capturing the magic and generosity swirling in the air during Seattle’s 2013 “Get Hitched, Give Hope” — an opulent gala and fundraising auction held last fall at The Four Seasons and one that bore witness to a staggering number of wedding vendors and industry artisans donating their services to an incredible cause. Dressed to the hilt in ravishing roaring twenties attire, betrothed couples floated through an evening bubbling with champagne, cafe music and deliciousness, bidding on all manner of goods and services—with all proceeds from the evening directed entirely to The Dream Foundation—a charity that fulfills end-of-life wishes for patients with terminal illness.
