Moving Box Work Featured on Ithaca Post

23 08 2010

Luke made his second video contribution to The Ithaca Post with a piece about Elisa Sciscioli, frontwoman for the local Ithaca band Solstice. You can find his piece on the Ithaca Post’s website by clicking here. It’s fascinating to hear her talk about her inner life of meditation and how it has helped her find her own voice and the strength to make the move to center stage after her career as a backup singer. For those not familiar with The Ithaca Post, it is a terrific source for music, art, and culture in Upstate New York and features a host of high-quality contributors.

Dj CUT MAN @ OTAKON 2010

3 08 2010

Dj CUT MAN and MC DEATH BEAR at OTAKON 2010Big news for Moving Box’s own Chris & Christian ( aka Dj CUT MAN and MC DEATH BEAR ): This weekend they headed down to Baltimore, MD to attend OTAKON, the east coast’s largest Anime and Japanese Culture festival attending approximately 30,000 people. The convention is named after the Japanese word “Otaku” which is used to refer to people obsessed with Japanese animation (anime), Japanese comics (manga) or Video Games.

This was a big milestone for Dj CUT MAN, Chris’ project proudly sporting the tagline of “Video Game DJ,” as it was a live performance in front of thousands of Otakon goers. Dj CUT MAN played his new mix, DUBTROPOLIS (available soon on SoundCloud), a collection of Dub-Step influenced Chiptune songs. If none of those words make sense to you, here’s a song that exemplifies the musical style. MC Death Bear became a true Master of Cerimonies that night, hyping the crowd and providing vocal interludes and shout outs throughout the set.

MC Death Bear has been creating art for Dj CUT MAN for months, and is responbile for the killer flyers for the series of shows at Ithaca’s own Waffle Frolic. Dj CUT MAN has created three full-length mix albums so far and his fourth is expected in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more.

Cornell Lecture Series: Perspectives On Design

21 04 2010

Hey everyone, I have been shooting footage of Cornell’s Lecture Series “Perspectives On Design”. The AAP Department is bringing in guest lecturers to talk about how art and business are merging in today’s marketplace as well as share their personal insight and experiences. So far, Cornell has brought in big name artists Jordan Crandall and Maurice Benayoun. They’ve talked about their bodies of work and the challenges they have had to tackle in the art world. Its been a great opportunity for art students to get to listen in and pick the brains of internationally successful artists. So far its been a great experience to be a part of, these guys definitely know their stuff (Google them, check out some of their work!). I’m set to cover a few more artists in April and I’ll be sure to let you know who drops in for the next series of lectures.

Hey everyone! Moving Box is on its way up. You are now looking at the newest

have a newly renovated studio, a great team of people working with us and a

Chris & MC Deathbear at MAGFest 8

13 01 2010

From December 31st – January 4th, Chris and MC Death Bear were in Alexandria, VA for the 8th annual MAGFest convention. MC Death Bear was selling his art and promoting the Moving Box animation Purgatory Pizza, coming soon to DVD!

It was a fun time, for sure, and MC Death Bear sold a lot of art. The MAGFest crew set up arcade games on free play and tons of console games throughout the hotel. There were panel discussions by a number of video game and voiceover celebrities, and nearly constant music performance from everything from chip-tune circuit benders to classical musicians, playing video game and video game inspired tunes. There were even live painters and hard-core cosplayers, all the ingredients for a dork-tastic good time. Definitely going next year. Check out more info at MAGFest.org
