uptown and the bronx, riding the 1 train video

I think the best rappers are the new york city metro conductors. here’s a little video I shot and scored some music to. unfortunately, digital camera quality back then wasn’t what it is today. maybe if you watch it from far far away it’ll be a bit more focused…

I shot along the 1 train, and some sections feature the infamous coffeeshop hostess frau viola. the video was not shot in the bronx, as many assume, but in manhattan, where all the station entrances to the 1 line say “uptown and the bronx”, so when I thought about a title for the flick this came to mind. I guess if you read something a million times it sticks.

to me this little document brings up fond memories of a really good time in a great city. hope it makes you feel the same way.

New York Hip Hop – what you get video

this is a new york hip hop video to promote the album the change up, which we recorded in 2006/07 and which I produced.

Steve Blanco (who also shot this one) from insomnia creations shot it on practically no budget and a timeframe that would  make most moviepeople sick. thanks Steve!

hiphop from New York – promo video

this is a NYC hip hop promotion video of one of the artists on  my label and who’s first album I produced back in 2006/07. we recorded at quad studios in new york with Eric Jensen. got many  great beats from great people and made a lot of cool friends during the process.
