PARK(ing) Day!

In Uncategorized on September 11, 2006 at 4:48 pm

On September 21st (or possibly Sept 24, depending on schedules) Chop Shop Studios will join in the fun and help create a PARK in a metered parking spot, somewhere in Washington, DC.

Check out ReBar’s website to learn more about the project: www.rebargroup.org.

Austin and I will be sure to post more information on how you can get involved in the District’s own version of PARK(ing) Day! Stay tuned!


Scotland Tales

Austin returned last week from Scotland having spent his time shooting the latest epsiode of NightHawk, “KnightHawk”. Here he is perched on top of Arthur’s Seat, scoping out the landscape for the next shot and looking overall very directorial.

Reggie, Tom, and Austin managed to entice enough talented actors from the Fringe Festival to round out the rather large cast of “KnightHawk” and from the first few peeks of the footage, I must say this is one which will top the rest.

Boehner-Kennedy, Saving Lives!

In Uncategorized on September 7, 2006 at 9:16 pm

On Tuesday, Emily commenced editing this year’s video for the Boehner-Kennedy Dinner, a fund-raiser which gives support (financial and emotional) to the Center City Consortium, a program designed to serve the District’s neediest children.

The video focuses on the fourteen schools (St. Thomas More and Our Lady of Perpetual Help, to name a few) it has made significant changes to – including entire reconstruction of major pieces of each building, such as the library, the cafeteria, even turning parking lots into playgrounds.

The District’s poorest children need a foundation to stand on, and the Boehner-Kennedy Dinner aims to make that foundation strong.

Furthermore, some of the children interviewed are so damn cute, we’ll have to post a piece of the video. Maybe submit it to Cute Overload.
