Fly By Light Premiere in DC (May 1st)

A local DC doc that I had the privilege to edit is premiering here on May 1st, with support from the DC Film Office. Info below.

One Common Unity presents the World Premiere of the new documentary film Fly By Light, to be held on Friday evening, May 1, 2015 at the National Geographic Theatre in Washington D.C.  Fly By Light - a film about a group of teenagers leaving the streets of Washington, DC to participate in an ambitious arts-based peace education program - captures the journey of four teenagers escaping the city's violence and abusive street corners to explore the mountaintops in West Virginia, and is an intimate exploration of the chaotic, confusing, and emotional journey to rewrite a young person’s future.  Watch the trailer here, and purchase your tickets for the screening here.

Thanks WAMU 88.5FM (DC)

A heartfelt thanks goes to WAMU's Ally Schweitzer, who has written up two of my videos in the past month. 

The first was selecting "The Lick" as DC's best entry in NPR's national Tiny Desk competition. DC artist Kokayi and I collaborated on the simple video and were pleasantly surprised with the overwhelming positive feedback, even though it ultimately did not end up winning the competition.


A few weeks later, Ally showed us love again as Kokayi and I released his first music video of 2015, a video we shot across DC and at a farm in PG County throughout the Fall of 2014. Ally calls the video a "tearjerker."

DC2DK Arts Exchange

Proud to say we at Nomadic Wax wrapped up our latest arts exchange project, spearheaded by DC-artist Kokayi and a DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities Sister-Cities grant. Check out the video, edited by yours truly, and shot by my good friend Alfonso Bui.

Oh, and we produced a mix tape for the project as well. Enjoy!


Audio Documentaries with Nomadic Wax

At Nomadic Wax, our team has been working hard on a series of audio projects we like to call Audio Documentaries. In our case, we are blending the traditional hip hop mixtape format with standard radio journalism to tell stories through music. Take a peak at a few of the one’s we’ve done.
