More on the understanding behind the documentary:
This is a group project whose main focus is dedicated to, “The Artists
Process”. The show will run with Photographers and Film Makers meeting at each
individual artists home. The Photographer and Film Maker will solely document
the hands and feet as the artists wake up & go about their daily routine.
This visual element will create a more dynamic approach to interpreting both
visual & sound as the artist gets ready to leave their home until they
arrive at their final location, 5 Pointz, (famous graffiti landmark in Queens).
All the artist will be documented in this similar fashion. Focusing on the feet
will represent movement and daily activities of each artist.
the beginning of this documentary, the "natural" sounds of their
daily activity will be the only thing the viewer will hear, but once the colors
are mixed onto the artists palette, the sounds will be mixed into loops and
MC's voices as each MC will provide a hook or a "line".
out and experience this expose into the lives of those who live for art and
live to perform it live. Artists included for this event: Marthalicia
Matarrita, Lexi Bella, Lissette Barros, Broke Mc, Sean Bono, John Smalls,
Spaze Craft, Lichiban, Venus Rodriguez, Mista Metro & much
all the artists, MC’s & dancers LIVE at:
When: September 20th
Where: 5 Pointz, Queens New York.
