Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting P.S. Bookshop in downtown DUMBO. They have a great selection of new and used books, vintage posters, cards etc. On my birthday, I found this awesome zine there, and on this visit, a book on Pinhole Photography by Eric Renner.
I just found out my friend Andrew van den Houten’s innovative new website TentSquare was nominated for a 2015 Edison Award! From what I understand, TentSquare is a new social media site for film creatives (writers, actors, producers and musicians) and produces its own films. One interesting aspect: it holds competitions for jobs within these film projects. For example, during the casting phase of a TentSquare film, the community votes on who will play the lead actors.
Thanks to encouragement from my girlfriend this past week, I was inspired and started thinking about directing a new youtube comedy web series! It’s still nascent (I dig that word) but the idea really started gaining velocity!
I just read on BOOOOOOOM! there’s a brand new social media site out there. It sounds like it was built for artists and designers, like the artsy version of Facebook. It’s called Ello and it’s in BETA right now. So, of course I had to check it out!
