Earlier this month we headed out to Boston, Mass to work with the education program at the ICA Boston. In an intensive three-day session which we called “Punk Rock Film School” a group of about 30 teens wrote, directed and edited and composed an original musical score for a short film. The result is a totally cool movie called SPLITZO. It’s the story of a girl with split personality who is dating a guy who doesn’t understand which one he’s in love with. At least that’s what we think it’s about? Regardless, congratulations to all the students that worked so incredibly hard to make this happen. This was some intense labor, but everyone came through with shining colors. So without further ado….Ladies & Gentlemen…..SPLITZO!!!!
A few years ago we set up a pop-up school at the NADA Art Fair in Miami during Art Basel. We were searching through photos the other day and Dan (our amazing TA) found these!! This is from a workshop with $erge, a terrific muralist who painted up the whole Haitian district with his amazing signs. Such a great day!!!
Punk Rock Film School with Aaron Rose at the ICA Boston this August!!!
From the ICA website: Aaron Rose – LA-based artist, film director and founder of Make Something!! leads this workshop using the streets of Boston as our collective sound stage. Through hands-on sessions, learn about the philosophy of storytelling, the development of a unique visual style, as well as tips on DIY marketing. www.icaboston.org
Make Something!! co-founder Aaron Rose has been featured as an EDUN PIONEER. For almost a decade, Ali Hewson and U2′s Bono, have been not only leading in the world of fashion with their clothing line Edun, but have also been inspiring others to help develop trading in Africa. To this day, Edun still works with the belief that style should have substance while it brings work and growth in Africa. To help bring attention to some supporters of Edun and their mission, Edun’s Fall/Winter 2011 Men’s Wear Campaign took a different approach by featuring 12 stylish men and their own missions within the community. Proceeds from the sale of garments go to support these causes. You can check the full project out HERE
