Wow, last week was insanely busy for our team!!!
We kicked of the week shooting a behind the scenes Dell World recap for our good friends at Dell. We had a blast working with their team…and it wasn’t too shabby seeing Weezer and Duran Duran tear up the stage as part of the capture!!! Working that event we also got to see some of our favorite industry folks, Lacy and Graham from Lacy Maxwell Productions and their team, and the ever awesome Robyn Baskin w/ The Fader. A great time was had for sure.
We cranked out that edit overnight and the piece ran on Thursday of Dell World to much applause. YES!!!
Thursday night we provided crew and gear to produce a commercial for Aberdeen Studios / Rackspace. Matt that runs Aberdeen is a long time friend and it was super to get the chance to work together on a large scale shoot. The piece will run as a web ad for Rackspace in the coming months and I think it’s going to turn out really great!
Friday / Saturday were off days with the fam, which were much needed.
Sunday we had the opportunity to absolutely CRUSH Kimberly Dunn performing at Blue Rock Studios in Wimberly. Such a crazy gorgeous facility. The team there is second to none and the concert was so much fun. Really excited to get the videos cranked out!
Lot’s of good things coming up! 2014 has been insanely good to us!!!
The great folks over at Arts+Labor were kind enough to bring us on to produce and execute AMD’s celebration of 30 years in the gaming industry. The event was a full on talk show style broadcast and went amazingly well.
We had a great time working with the AMD team and look forward to more in the near future.
Check out the show here, and stay tuned for lots of great updates coming soon!
Wow, as usual, the hurricane that is SXSW has swept through Austin, TX leaving a giant wake of awesome moments and exhaustion in it’s wake.
Our team was incredibly busy this year producing content during SXSW Interactive for Vice + AT&T, capturing highlights for Comedy Living Room, assisting the amazing folks at Funny or Die, crushing our first live stream in conjunction with Arts + Labor / El Rey / Alamo Drafthouse and of course, bringing the full on CRUSH to the Fader Fort for the 6th straight year.
You can find all of the Fader Fort performance clips and recaps at http://www.thefader.com/category/faderfort/
We will be posting new clips to the site as they are released. Definitely make sure to check out the very special performance at “Clint Eastwood” in the featured video box above.
Lot’s of great stuff in the works…picking ourselves off the floor and diving back in!
We hope everyone is off to a killer 2014 thus far.
Our team has a ton of great things in the works. We are prepping for another crazy SXSW (already), we just wrapped shooting a music video for The Black and White Years song “Embraces” which will be released later in January and much more.
Stay tuned for details and happiest of New Years!
Vampire Weekend! Robin Thicke! Avett Bros.! Madeon! So many great acts graced the 3 stages at the 2013 Virgin Mobile Free Fest! Our team worked hand in hand with the amazing team at Merriweather Post Pavilion to handle live production / iMag and the XI Media team handled the live stream entirely, soup to nuts for Virgin. What an amazing experience. We should have some video clips to share soon!
Jon and Bradley are starting a 3 day shoot for Vice in Austin this weekend, then we have a few smaller gigs in NYC before…CMJ!!!
This year we have already locked in the Fader Fort at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn as well as a one day Dell / Fader Fort at a location tbd. Very excited to be returning for CMJ for 4th year.
In November XI Media will be working with Food Trucks 4 Freedom to live stream a one night only concert featuring Charlie Robison in New Braunfels, TX. This should be a killer event for a great cause. More to come on ways to donate and get involved.
Lot’s of music video / promo projects in the works as well. Heading into fall with a lot to look forward to!!!
We’ve been picking up crush ops left and right the past few weeks, so I thought I’d share some of our goings on!
Tonight (July 26th), Brad and the guys will be shooting performer Larry G in Dallas for an EPK we will be working on for him. Should be a fun shoot!
We are also working on a very fun music video project for our friends, The Dead Left. Hoping to get that out in the next few weeks.
Next weekend, August 3rd, a few of our team will be heading to Chicago to once again crush it for the Rolling Stone Rock Room event during Lollapalooza. Stoked to be shooting a REALLY fun band from the UK…details to come.
