G PEN CONNECT

G PEN CONNECT

Vaporizer vanguard Grenco Science’s latest breakthrough in the cannabis space is the G Pen Connect. If you’re familiar with dabbing, this is a cleaner approach without the torch. We had the honor of spearheading stills and commercials for this campaign, enjoy the BTS and video pieces below. Big thanks to the whole cast and crew…

Maria Isa in Museum Exhibit | First Ave: Stories of MN’s Main Room

Maria Isa in Museum Exhibit | First Ave: Stories of MN’s Main Room

I discovered Maria Isa through her song “Royalty” with Muja Messiah in 2008. I tried to keep an ear to Minnesota’s thriving music scene after migrating to LA months prior, and found Maria and Muja’s tunes refreshing, adroit and most important – original. By 2011 the duo formed Villa Rosa, debuting their LP Blue Diamond Island. When…

Barcelona Zine

Barcelona Zine

In an era where streams & interaction are chased and praised, while tangible art perseveres on the fringe of extinction, we’re making an effort to keep print alive. In this 26 page zine, I attempt to splice and screw photojournalism through collages of Sahtyre’s debut in Barcelona. From epic feasts to festive art lairs, open…

We gifted attendees a free engraved G Pen Gio and CBD cartridge.  Daytime happenings consisted of different panels discussing hemp and CBD’s position and future in mainstream society. “Recovery and Relief: CBD for Athletes” panel…

ANALOG REWIND

ANALOG REWIND

First and foremost, we’re storytellers. We don’t limit ourselves to one media or medium. Yes, film is amazing. But this isn’t a hipster plea for everyone to SHOOT MORE FILM. It’s a collection of some favorite analog captures from the past rotations around the sun. Thank you for your time. -Adam Stanzak

BARZELONA

BARZELONA

I’ve been collaborating with Cassidy Howell for close to a decade. I’d bike to 3rd & Normandie with a MiniDV camera; these were early youtube days, before everyone had a vlog. Album photography, music videos, studio sessions; I’ve had the privilege of documenting the highs and lows of one of the world’s finest visionaries.  I…

G Life: Malia

G Life: Malia

Malia is one of the freshest additions to our record rotation, her personality is just as refreshing as her music. She describes her sound as neo/alternative soul, but for us it transcends beyond that. The above is a bio video shot with G Pen, be sure to listen to her catalog and slide to her…

Sound and Fury 2018

Sound and Fury 2018

Sound and Fury is a hardcore punk rock festival that embodies a raw, autonomous, nonpareil ethos of loving music & wylin’ on a higher tier. As occult as these captures are, they don’t come close to the energy experienced as a participant. Dare I say the function is liken to Germany’s Chaostage… YES. Special thanks to…

BTS: Subject 19 (Short Film)

BTS: Subject 19 (Short Film)

The celestial being Preston Garret invited me to shoot some BTS stills on the short film Subject 19, written and directed by Adam Hoelzel. Of course I abided. Not because we share the same birthday or met as interns on the Stan Lee documentary (although both SWAG) but I genuinely love being on set watching the magic…

Pine Mountain

Pine Mountain

Hours from departing on a camping mission with my brother Luke and my homie Mark to Pine Mountain, I found an old film camera packed away in a dusty case lying around my house. Los Padres National Forest was a perfect destination to experiment with the 35mm camera, and even more so a roll of Lomography’s…

G Life: Sahtyre

G Life: Sahtyre

Artists creating in top wizard dimensions (Sahtyre) and dope brands at the forefront of multiple industries (G Pen) make profile pieces like this even more fun and refreshing than the usual. If you’re new, do your research. If not, you know Steezlawd has been a Drastic dignitary before inception. Stills and motion captured in Sahtyre’s…
