music film // Bombay Beach : “Thee Mote”

Allow us to present this music film we put together for our friends in Portland’s Bombay Beach. We used motion graphics, rephotographed footage and original footage to create this beast—we hope it only serves to make the band that much more mysterious than their music…

music film // Phinisey : “Something New”

Seattle area producer and musical collaborator Phinisey is striking out on his own and releasing solo music—doing Something New…starting with this music film we created for him.

music film // V. CONTRERAS : “Gasoline”

We’re pleased to share our latest music film—”Gasoline” from Seattle independent artist V. Contreras‘ eponymous debut album.
