Moving Box Presents: Tombstoned

7 05 2010

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to blog about this project as you might notice it starring a handful of devilishly handsome, rogue agents by the names of Mark Spellman, Nicoli Schwiep & Joe Zohar. Tombstoned is my boy Dillon McCarthy’s S.V.A. thesis film about a shitty trio of astronauts who realize, that as far as contributions to the world go, the best they can hope for is to be the first men stoned on the moon. The film was shot in Moving Box’s live room at the end of last summer. In just under a year Dillon, and his SVA cohorts, handled all the post production for the film. Dillon just wrapped up the post production and delivered to us a gem of what collaboration can bring, as Dillon also just finished up compositing a scene for Chalk Outlines (due out this fall btw) that will blow minds. I love the studio and the people who come in it to create!

Dr. Z mixtape – Let’s Go Fishing

4 03 2010

Hey everyone, so I finally got off my lazy digital ass and made a mixset of some of my incarnations of electronic music. There’s a good blend of house, tech house, drum and bass, dubstep, and grime. A little of what has been caught in my digital fishnet over the past few months. I hope you like music that make’s your booty go back, cause thats whats about to go down as soon as you hit play. The artwork is the first part of the overall theme for the mixes in the Island of Dr. Z series. Hope you enjoy the music as there is plenty more to come.
