Tonight, I was so honored to have two short films I submitted, play for this dope event Elevated, benefiting the Urban Air project as well as SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom, all happening at the LoftSEVEN Penthouse rooftop in Downtown Los Angeles. The short films are part of the MobiMovi concept, 10 second films, using only a mobile device to film with. It was so cool to see my films, among others, showing on two large screens all night. Special kick ass performance by Wilco’s Nels Cline along with Sarah Elgart, I was so blown away. I was also tripping out by the helicopter hoovering above with it’s spot light on during the performance, it added a craziness to it all. Director Kevin Kerslake, known for his Nirvana, Depeche Mode and The Rolling Stones videos, did such fantastic works on the visuals via projections everywhere. Carlos Lopez (Angry Bananas) even brought down two indie video games for everyone’s late night game fix. Big thanks to¬†Eric Nakamura (Giant Robot) and Kio Griffith (CafeMode) for having me be apart of this awesome event, it was an experience.

Conceived by Los Angeles artist Stephen Glassman, Urban Air transforms existing urban billboards into living, suspended bamboo gardens. Embedded with intelligent technology, Urban Air installations become global nodes in addition to being instruments toward a green future.

Mobile Kitchen Classroom is a new nonprofit organization launched by Peter Glatzer and Adrian Grenier’s SHFT that seeks to provide high school students with the opportunity to engage in experiential lessons around food, health, and sustainability.
