THE FAMILY

THE FAMILY THE FAMILY is a multi-media studio of artists who care. The Family is a full-service production studio that creates commercials, films, digital content, virtual reality, and live experiences.
(1)

Lead by a desire to create lasting content through any medium possible.

Mission: This was always the idea. Not to hide in the woods to find creative solitude, but to open our arms and embrace collaboration. To defy the norm, expecting the good and embracing the bad. To know it's all going to happen way too fast, but we keep each other close. Not to become a company, but to stay a collective. To remind each other why we do what we do. To call ourselves the family because that's just what we are. To be different. To blow minds. To stay childish. To make art that can actually make the world a better place. And to never ever EVER be boring.

Process video for #noeyesonme: In just a few days this feel-good animation came together. It started with an eye. Pink clouds added. Morphing flowers drawn. Fresh and vibrant purples, oranges, and aquas to fill the frame. Oh, and don’t forget the champagne! 🥂

What's in the water you ask? Well, that depends. If you find yourself in the the Matsu archipelago off the coast of China in the beginning of summer on a dark cloudy night with the tide coming in, chances are you will catch a glimpse of Noctiluca scintillans, a bioluminescent dinoflagellate that lives in our oceans. Our work-in-progress installation about this, dubbed the same name as the Matsu natives call the phenomenon- Blue Tears– is an immersive film installation that blurs the lines between the ecological and the magical. We're currently seeking funding to finish the project and are looking for spaces to host it. Tell your friends who like sparkly things that we should talk. - YYL @ Matsu, Fu-Chien, Taiwan

Coachella!!

This week in FAMILY history:

“The year was 2016. The artist was Joey Bada$$. The stage was... the main one.

A few days before the show we arrived in LA to rehearse. Not knowing if Joey was going to stick to the setlist (this is Brooklyn hip-hop you better believe it’s all live) we had to prepare visuals for anything. Even the iconic moment when he yells “got dragon balls like my name was Vegeta” and we surprised him by throwing up a Vegeta on one of the biggest festival stages in America (seen in picture 2).

I even remember Joey playing us an unreleased song called “Devastated” that he was considering performing. It was stuck in our head for weeks and later went on to become a Platinum selling single. #OMWtogreatness

It was my first VJ gig and definitely wasn’t my last as we travelled the world performing live stage visuals with him for the next 2 years.”

Not many people have seen them, but we have a few projects that unofficially started THE FAMILY.

So let’s go into the vault because one of which was released 5 years ago today in collaboration with the artist formerly known as Tree. And to quote @noisey, “Tree starts off looking like Luke Skywalker before disrobing a la Channing Tatum in Magic Mike.”

This is the music video for Stuck Down the Wrong Rabbit Hole by Tree ft. Beat Culture & Lena Kuhn.

2017 Recap Reel

2017 was insane. It was the year that taught us the most about ourselves, our work, the realities of doing business. It was the year we built our own project out of nothing but the support of our friends and fellow artists. It was the year we moved from our apartment to an office. It was the year we learned how to say no. Every waking moment was a challenge but despite it all we're still here. Every single person in this video poured their heart and soul into every project, and we simply couldn't have done any of this without them. Here's to 2018, y'all. I think it's going to be a big one. -GY & the whole damn Fam

Sean Price "Imperius Rex" (Official Music Video)

We've been up to some monkey business.🙊 We created an animated post-humous music video for Sean Price for his track "Imperius Rex." Directed by Steve Dabal and Josh Heineman.

"In a world taken over by gorillas and monkeys, there is one hero that leads them all- the great ape himself, P! Guiding his Gorilla Clik though the desolated streets of Brooklyn, this is how they spend their days- chin-checkin' a chimp and levelin' a lemur- bow down to the world-renowned Brownsville Jesus, P!"
