    Interesting Ball (12 min) - dir. DANIELS

    A red ball bounces past a cafe and a couple folks’ houses and then goes to the beach.

    Good one. Lots of folks I know worked on this.

    People often say that same-sex marriage now is like interracial marriage in the 60s. But in terms of public opinion, same-sex marriage now is like interracial marriage in the 90s, when it had already been legal nationwide for 30 years.


    I love the mouse over text on XKCD, it often makes me go, “oh, wow."

    Well, I could never have imagined how much foreshadowing was going into this group shot from Phoot Camp when I submitted my application photo. As an unstated rule, my mystical tendencies are all but non-existent so I am still unsure what to make of everything but there certainly was a force outside myself controlling this outcome. Integratron related, consciousness infiltration?

    Eternal gratefulness abounds to each and every CAMPER who have become the lights of my life, fires in my belly, and spirits of my soul. I wish I could see your face as it explores the amazing photos this talented bunch has produced, prepare to fall deep into a rabbit hole of kick-buttness. Their work has proven once again a testament to the importance of this historical moment in the evolution of photographic collectivity as we know it. You really gotta hand it to our founder and fairy godmother, Laura Brunow Miner, for her supernatural ability in creating an environment of inspirational bliss and human engagement.

    We couldn’t have done it without the generous help from Squarespace whose contribution placed us in the protective womb that is the Joshua Tree Retreat Center. Also, Vanessa Gonzalez who created our fantastic wardrobe, PIX rentals for the equipment, NATIVE shoes for protecting our feet and Gloss Post Production for putting the finishing touches of magic that brought this image to another world. Lastly, this boat wouldn’t a floated without the tireless admin efforts from Matthew Mahon, Garrett Cornelison, Chad Nicholson and Kathryn Tomajan, you are all the bees knees. Breathe…

    Plot: We meet people who are happy with how good the internet has been to them. Then, we learn that the FCC might allow internet service providers to turn the internet into a dystopian plutocracy. It is up to you to save these people, and the entire internet, by visiting tumblr.com/stop and asking the FCC to take a firm stand on net neutrality. Feat. Mark Ruffalo.

    I tried calling, it just rang for minutes. I’ll try again

    At $tandard ©reative, we threw Pizza a 125th Bday Party and ordered delivery from every pizzeria in NY (great idea, Matt Capucilli!) All made possible by Shock Top Brewing Co., who sponsored the project. 

    Pizza was created on June 11, 1889 by hero genius Raffaele Esposito. We celebrated Pizza’s 125th birthday at our studio by ordering delivery from every pizzeria in New York.
