Oscilloscope Laboratories

Oscilloscope Laboratories We're distributing films to raise money to complete work on a time machine. Soon we'll fold space and time. Oscilloscope Laboratories is a film production and theatrical distribution entity launched in 2008 by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys.

Yauch modeled the company after the indie record labels that he grew up around, choosing films and then marketing them with the same artistic integrity with which they were made. The company, which is an extension of Yauch’s recording studio of the same name, has an in-house DVD distribution and production arm, and the paper packaging is reminiscent of the heyday of LP record jackets. All of the company's DVD packaging is (free of any plastic) printed on FSC Certified 80% post-consumer waste paper and produced in a carbon neutral, hydroelectric, ISO- 9001 and ISO- 14001 certified plant.

An argument for physical over digital media

Hey did y'all know that when you "buy" a film on a VOD platform, you still don't actually "own" it? It can go away anytime! Did you also know that streaming video quality is never going to be as good as Blu-ray? It's just facts, gang.

Respect the DVD shelf, forever! O-Scope proudly offers all of our films on DVD and usually Blu-ray. Always with cool bonus features. And we're pretty famous for our thoughtful, unique, beautiful packaging. So keep buying discs from us (and our friends at Milestone Film, The Criterion Collection, Kino Lorber, and all the other great companies keeping physical film media alive!

While our entertainment is primarily digital, many physical forms with better quality are slept on

I graduated in 2015, if you're hiring...
My favorite live music memory is of taking my daughter to see Florence and the Machine at Shaky Knees festival in Atlanta. We were at the railing and she stayed on my shoulders a majority of the show. The folks in VIP must have felt bad for me because they told me to hoist her over the rail and then they let her stand in the seats. As we were leaving a man standing a fair distance back waited for us. He stopped me and told me that seeing me enjoy the concert with my daughter made his day, and that he looked forward to doing the same when he had children of his own. My daughter had the time of her life and it was just a great experience. It's because of interactions like this that I seek out and love live music.
My favorite live music memory, as requested by Danny Clinch.... That’s hard to choose one. A memorable one would be when I saw Blind Melon in late Summer, 1993 at an outdoor venue where I live in Ohio. I was waiting to hear Change and Deserted as those were my favorites at the time. It was unbelievably hot and I ended up with sun poisoning- and heard most of their set from the first aid tent... while I was half sick, it became a wonderful memory as I got older. I also saw Nirvana on Halloween, ‘93 in Akron, Ohio, and it was a weird show to say the least. Kurt wore a purple Barney head during part of the set. I am so grateful I was fortunate to be at those shows as both Shannon and Kurt were gone shortly after. I’ve become a Melon Superfan since, but those summer days listening to the radio in the early 90’s began it all.
Big thank you for the sign
We want to see SOLLERS POINT!! Please tell us how / where!!
Positive day Precious Friends....thank you for putting The Wagon Man in your film....The King.....very interesting documentary....we truly enjoyed viewing it....Love to All....see you in the streets...
And there is more........:)
Here's a list of theaters around the country who will be showing our film, St. Frances during February and March. Like they say...Coming to a theater near you! So happy that we got to be a part of this beauty!
To all our friends out there across the USA, here's a list from Oscilloscope showing the dates and theaters that our film, St Frances, will be shown in different cities across the country. A fiend of mine said, "This is woman's film that every man should see." It really is a good film, and Lynne and I are very happy to have been part of bringing it to the screen.
THANK YOU, Oscilloscope!!!!! Love, Steve

Great footage in tonight's Feherty on Golf Channel from the Oscilloscope Pictures production of John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection. We love the movie. Thanks for your help with our show.
