A great new concept that will hopefully make it to production.…

Among the many facets of the Arts that I really enjoy is the art of Urban Dance. I want to pay my respects to this art form in my first blog post.
For my first installation, I will give tribute to the style called WAACKING, made popular by the likes of none other than Jody Watley. It is a style that came out of good ol' La La Land, and I love it. Here is a Waacking battle that was held in New York,… Continue

If you love old school video games, you'll appreciate this picture set by Justin Sachtleben. It's almost like a dream after playing too much Tetris. By shooting these jumbo blocks in a narrow alley, it really enhances the sense of scale. Can't you just hear the music, too?…

In a brilliant marketing move, T-Mobile created this viral ad of hundreds of people randomly dancing at Liverpool Street station in London which took place Thursday 15th January 2009. Although this is a HUGE bite-off of Improv Everywhere's frozen people at Grand Central Station in New York, it's still a highly effective ad, and I give them credit for…
