Collaboration: Chris Rubino – Some of Us Had Been Threatening Our Friend Colby

 

In the fall of 2014 we approached by Chris Rubino to help him capture aerial footage for his independent short, a filmic rendition of postmodern writer Donald Barthelme's short story about teenage conformity, first published in the New Yorker in 1973, Some of us had been threatening our friend colby

 

I met Chris Rubino at Syracuse University in 1993, where we were both Computer graphics majors.

We were brought in to shoot the Aerial footage that would be used to open and close the film. With just a few takes at "golden hour" we were able to create some footage that delivered the dream like quality that Chris was looking for.

Stockade FC - A New Semi-Professional Men's Soccer Club based in Kingston, NY

This summer we were asked to help build the brand for a new men's semi-professional soccer team based in Kingston, New York. This felt like a perfect assignment with our ambitions of extending and building our community and business in the Catskills as well as NYC and LA/SF.  

The club is starting from scratch and invites folks from Kingston to Poughkeepsie, Newburgh to Hudson, Beacon to Albany to be a part of building and shaping the club.

This is the final crest design. More to come in January of 2016.
