We're a collective of friends living and working in Philadelphia. We create short films with local and touring artists and bands performing in different locations around the city. While we call Philadelphia home, we occasionally make a trip to another city. So lets hang out.

Woodsman, a droney, instrumental three piece from Brooklyn stopped by our warehouse the other week before a gig at Kung Fu Necktie to play us some music. With instrumental songs, it’s easy to get carried away in the moods sonic envelope. Before you know it, ten minutes have passed and you’re wondering where the time went.
The bands sonic sound filled our large, 2400 sq ft space quite well, performing two songs from their newest self-titled album, Woodsman. As one commenter on their website mentioned after browsing past their name several times in a search for new music.. “Finally gave them a listen… More like a nature hike that found a few shrooms.” We don’t feel like this guy is too far off.. Enjoy “Teleseparation,” the closing track from the album and stay tuned for another release soon.
When we were traveling through Peru late last year, we linked up with local Lima band kanaku & el tigre on a sunny day to document a few of their songs. We have already shared a session featuring one of their most popular songs, “Bicecleta”. Here’s another song from that summer day in South America, “Tu verano mi invierno”.
Late last year, we linked up with our friends Quilt to document a song off their, at the time, not-yet released record, Held In Splendor. It was our third time filming with the Massachusetts band and the first time they played without a special guest. The previous two times, they would invite a Philadelphia friend to join them for the video while they were in town.
For this session though, it was just them in our warehouse space before a show they had later on that night. After we rearranged our living space and set the vibe, the band played us a version of “Eye Of The Pearl”.
Saint Rich is a band hailing from Sussex County, New Jersey, who are comprised of two friends— Steve Marion and Christian Peslek. The duo are perhaps best known for their other musical endeavor— Delicate Steve. For this project, they teamed up once more for a renovated rock and roll sound with Peslek on vocals and Marion still ripping on guitar.
The band is on tour with Dr. Dog at the moment, and opened for them in our hometown of Philadelphia a few weeks ago. They made time to stop by our warehouse the following morning for a shoot, filming a song called “You Ain’t Worth The Night”.
Marian Hill is a Philly duo comprised of two friends- singer Samantha Gongol and producer Jeremy Lloyd. Their friendship dates back to when they were both in middle school theater in the suburbs of Philadelphia. They went their separate ways during college, but eventually linked back up to create music together.
Fast forward to last month and they invited us out to the middle school auditorium where their friendship started. The principal was kind enough to allow us to have free range over the space as long as we didn’t make a mess. After we figured out how to work the lighting system and the PA, we documented two songs. The first being their latest single, “One Time”.
