Check out some of the resources that were used as research for The Subjective Objective: Building #MakerMedia session at SXSW 2014.
An update about my upcoming solo presentation “The Subjective Objective: Building Maker Media” at this year’s South by Southwest Interactive conference, and my first time ever appearance on a game show called The Smartest Dumbass, pitting interactive and film folks against each other in a battle of the minds.
In addition to building a community site for the indie film gem Mars at Sunrise and the Fajr Falestine Film Collective, Misfit Media also did the poster design, and wrote the tagline for the film, “The story of war waged on imagination.” On Friday, February 7, 2014 in New York City, co-stars Ali Suliman and Guy El Hanan appeared in conversation with Nicole Brydson at Quad Cinemas for a post-premiere talkback.
Misfit Media built a suite of sites for Sunnyside Films, their founder, actor and producer Michael Izquierdo, as well as for their film projects The Weekend and The Last Day of August, in which our design director Rhett Henckel also starred and designed the movie poster. We’re a multifaceted bunch here at Misfit Media.
Misfit Media worked with the Village Voice's Laura Shunk who ran a great story on the brand new Williamsburg establishment The Grand Bar and Grill (647 Grand Street, Brooklyn), The Grand Owner Eric Austin Talks His New Williamsburg Spot and Forthcoming Ridgewood Joint. Sit long enough at the bar at The Grand, a three-month-old joint […]
“The Subjective Objective” debuted in July 2013, showcasing research as performance by Nicole Brydson. It debuted as a performative piece as part of Archiving The Now at the Glasshouse Project during the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival and as a prototype website that would become the basis of other projects like BrooklynTheBorough.com, MarsAtSunrise.com and others to come.
Our first (failed) interactive application to present a session at the annual Austin, Texas conference South by Southwest Interactive became the basis for a lot of our ideas and projects to come.
More than a few lucky audiences have had the pleasure of experiencing The Outfit’s original Shakes-parody project Jester’s Dead this summer. On August 2, 2012 The New York Times took notice and recommended catching the final show of the season.
“This critically acclaimed exercise in action-packed parody has a simple, happy formula: the classic ’80s flick “Top Gun” as it might have been interpreted by William Shakespeare.” -Megan Angelo
Outernational’s first video off of the album “Todos Somos Ilegales: We Are All Ilegals” was directed by Jessica Habie and produced by Misfit Media’s own Nicole Brydson. The concept was created with the small screen in mind, meant to be filled with a vast landscape of possibility. The long and short shots juxtapose the movement of time, energy, new ideas and is seen from the perspective of the viewer.
Misfit Media booked Outernational as part of John Varvatos’ Thursday Nite Live Series, showcasing emerging musical talent on the hallowed grounds of the former CBGB’s in New York City. Outernational took the stage with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith on the kit, featured later on MTV2’s 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield.
Misfit Media garnered a few mentions in the media about The Outfit’s latest production of Jester’s Dead, a Shakespearian parody of the legendary film Top Gun. Best New York Comedy writes, “This show begins with a delightful concept…and then executes it with the joyful craft only a sharp, tight theatrical ensemble can create. Everyone in the cast is terrific.”
