An ensemble of buskers shares a ballad with the ephemeral community of commuters across New York's subway platforms. Presented by Vacationland, this is a love letter to the creative process and the complicated relationship an artist has with their work.

The Video Consortium

As the fires in California rage on, our hearts are heavy as we think about the devastation they’ve brought to our west coast collaborators and friends. The least we can do is help the folks who’re working, day and night, to slow them down. Donate to California Fire Foundation. Their SAVE program provides gift cards to victims of fire or other natural disasters so they may purchase basic necessities such as food, clothing or medicine.

Pictured is a still from Nicholas Weissman, Kalim Armstrong and Vacationland Studio’s short film, for TIME, about the #Thomasfire in Ojai, California.

The Madbury Club + Microsoft Surface Experiments: Mobile Projection Unit

Stoked to share our latest collaboration with our friends over at Protein® to help Brooklyn artist collective The Madbury Club realize their lifelong dream of making a mobile projection unit!

Partnering with Microsoft, and using the Surface to design the vehicle, The Madbury Club purchased an 80's-era Japanese Suzuki truck on Craigslist and converted it into a mobile studio, equipped with a seating area, projector, speaker system and generator so they can 'take their vibe and put in your driveway'.
