http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=195261430533749

The general theme is a sassy, surreal Victorian era tea party with steampunk elements interwoven.  The first shoot date is going to be October 15 at 2pm in southeast Fort Lauderdale.

Adam Kaplan from Ask Media

is going to be shooting video for us! :-)  (at least at the first shoot on Saturday, Oct. 15th)

We are still casting all positions: models/actors, photographers, video folks, photoshop wizards, makeup/hair, stylists, Prop guys/girls, anybody really that wants to get involved is welcome chat me up in an email: Brian {at} Sandboxraw.com

Our facebook event page is:

Victorian - Steampunk - Tea party train tracks location 1 - Green screen wall

Thanks for your interest and here is the original event description from Facebook:

*This is an art project with any proceeds going to charity. There is no budget so nobody is getting paid but we should all help take care of the make up artist and/or body painters for their product costs.

A tea party, some croquet, and steampunk fun. That’s it, low stress, high fun. Please no big egos, I hope everybody brings ideas and brings lots of energy to their characters which should be strong and confident if not sassy :-) but off camera let’s keep it real mellow and low drama please.

Victorian - Steampunk - Tea party train tracks location 1 - Tanker cars

The 15th 1pm-sunset is set in stone. The final locations (somewhere in Broward) and the second shoot date is still up in the air. If you’re interested get me your availability Brian [at] Sandboxraw.com and we’ll figure it all out in the next couple days. The location is in south Broward, details coming soon.

THINK FANTASTIC, SURREAL, MECHANICAL & WHIMSICAL, Steampunk is not a real world type of thing so we’ll do the best we can on set to bend reality but a creative Photoshop Genie would be fabulous! We already have a good retoucher but extra help can’t hurt!

Mr. Jeffrey Scott was nice enough to let us use his work  “A Modern Day Love Affair” for some inspiration for this project.  Here is his Model Mayhem http://www.modelmayhem.com/1980 and website: http://factory1019.com/ and the model, Frankie C: http://www.modelmayhem.com/618929

I have a pretty good location in mind near Davie Blvd. and 95 so we’ll finalize that soon too but I’d still like to talk about a second location.

Metal, leather, glass, machinery, steam, time travel, goggles, and ray guns are sort of the cliche steam punk themes but I don’t want to get too hung up on all that.. We should represent the era, Victorian, but beyond that let’s do something different. Simple but heavy drama and the contrast between soft and hard are important to me.

I had a concept I wanted to do awhile back that might work, a Victorian tea party right next to some live train tracks. A steam train or steam engines in general would be fabulous.

I don’t know, let’s get some discussion flowing, please add any ideas or anything you think would help us!

Thanks! -Brian

Here’s a list of photos on here I put together and a youtube video that might help:

Of course good models, photographers, videoheads, and make up/stylists are going to be key but body painters and photoshop wizards could take this project to the next level. Some of the mechanical body stuff would be rad!! Drop me a line if you have an interest!

From the humble beginnings of distributing a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the homeless, to today’s provision of 1.2 million meals a year, the agency’s dramatic development has reflected both the growing numbers and the growing needs of the poor in our community.

As a totally private, 501 C3, federally recognized non profit agency, we are forever grateful for the compassion and generosity of the community and our supporters.

Last Hope – Final Battle – Game Plan

Sooooo, it’s time to wrap up shooting for this thing.. tomorrow Saturday, July 9th at 3pm, we’re asking everybody that can make it to meet us at this location near the 595 and 441 intersection.  Plan on trying to stay THROUGH sunset and if you want, depending on how dirty we all feel, we may be going straight to the Red Eye pre opening party at the Green Room downtown. http://www.jointherevolution.net/Green_Room/index.html

Bring your weapons, war paint, get your head in survival / fight mode.. we can all be friends again over some beers afterwards but tomorrow from 3pm-9pm if they aren’t in your tribe and with the exception Kelly and a few other connecting characters we’ll catch you up on in little pre shoot chat… Everyone else on the set is a direct threat to you and your family/tribe’s existence…  and p.s. don’t be upset if you’re character dies.. sorry it’s Armageddon, it needs to feel like it!  but maybe.. just maybe… they’re be some Last little bit of Hope :-)

Anyway from 595 you take 441 south and then take your first right and wiggle around like this:

Parking for final fight

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000145887970

Shaping up like a beach set this weekend.. Surf gang, Armageddon female tribe type feel for our Water & Fire Elements (there’s a fire ban across south Florida so there will be no actual fire this time but don’t worry, we’ll post in some fire!!..also grab a Free spirit, Hippie, Earthy look if you can.. check here for ideas on wind or water ideas: http://sandboxraw.com/2011/06/02/one-hope/

For Fire: some hard, leather, studded type clothing and accessories! The burnt rags like Liana’s stuff from last week.. idk use your imagination.. Wife Beaters and old Tshirts, ripped up are a good start..

For Water: black or white swimwear would be good but whatever color you have will probably work.. surf boards, whiskey, and cigarettes is about all I can come up with.. add your ideas below!!!!.. the rags will probably come in handy .. again the harder the look the better

hard chicks, heavy tattoos, please apply within!

For Earth: Try to pull off cute hippie look!

Last Hope

This is the general outline for an installation piece we are entering in ArtServe’s Red Eye show coming up down here in Fort Lauderdale in July
red eye art show artserve for lauderdale
A collaboration between the Sandbox crew, Dark Cherry Designs, and you!

Sorry I just read this project description talking about a 1 night shoot, clearly this project has taken on a life of it’s own :-)  The story how it started anyway,  is below.
Here’s some details on the upcoming shoots.  Basically a ton of ultra talented photographers, actors, and all the rest of the crew it takes to create moving imagery are getting involved so stay tuned and jump in if you’re feeling it!
All photographers and videographers  have the right to use their footage for anything they want, please bring your own model releases,  but we’re asking for raw and post images from everyone so we can patch together a nice flow and feel for these final shorts.. Any and all proceeds from this project are going to charity and everyone will be fully credited for their work.

The concept  is war and division is what will cause the Armageddon and all the death and destruction that goes along with it.  We’re going to illustrate how acceptance, love, music, and kindness might be our “Last Hope”
A trustworthy foundation that supports those values is what we’re fishing for right now.  If we have some luck raising some money at the show we would love to help out the Big Brother Big Sisters Foundation here in Broward county: http://www.bbbsbroward.org so we’re reaching out to them but please if you have any suggestions, post them below!
Please email me asap Brian [at] Sandboxraw.com if you’re interested in getting involved!  Musicians, Video Post Production, and Video Cameramen/women with a really edgy, funky style are in high demand right now but anybody willing to try their hand at acting and modeling, please forward your info and we’ll try to get you in there!!
Thanks for your interest, Brian and Cerise!!

954 330 2848 let’s chat and see how we can fit you in!

Here’s the schedule:

July 7th and July 9th at a yet to be determined location.. (3pm-same)

Here’s the concept:
For as the Ancient Wisdom of Solomon promises: Verse 6. 12 –
“Wisdom is radiant and unfading and she is easily discerned by
those who love her, and is found by those who seek her.” “She
hastens to make herself known to those who desire her.” and “…she
goes about seeking those worthy of her, and she graciously appears
to them in their paths, and meets them in every thought. Hence the
song lyrics: “She was also in your City. Haven’t you heard?”

War and confusion starting at 4pm (6/11/11)

Apocalypse – end of the world 6 12 110.01 am-08.00am (Sunrise)

For as the Ancient Wisdom of Solomon promises:

Verse 6. 12 –“Wisdom is radiant and unfading and she is easily discerned bythose who love her, and is found by those who seek her.” “Shehastens to make herself known to those who desire her.” and “…shegoes about seeking those worthy of her, and she graciously appearsto them in their paths, and meets them in every thought.

Hence the song lyrics: “She was also in your City. Haven’t you heard?

Stock up on Visine.. The Red Eye is coming!!

ArtServe is hosting what should be an amazing art show starting July 22nd here in Fort Lauderdale!

The Red Eye is an innovative and  exciting event aimed at promoting fresh, underground art. The exhibit is an energetic and creative concept that offers artists in all artistic disciplines, an open forum of expression. This is the only exhibit that enmeshes gallery art with street art.

Artwork being showcased should fall into one of the following themes:

Lowbrow/Pop Surrealism Art – artwork that has origins in the underground comix world, punk, hot-rod street culture, and other subcultures (ex: game art renderings and tattoo art)

Social Commentary Art – artwork that makes a statement about current society or current trends.

Please  email your vendor info, idea, or performance art information to: Marymation@gmail.com
More info: contact  ArtServe 954-462-8190 or marymation@gmail.com
www.artserve.org

We are going to submit a Social Commentary installation piece based on the popular Apocalypse / Armageddon theme
http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=202384376442169

Email me Brian@Sandboxraw.com if you’re interested in modeling/acting in our production.. We’re also still looking for:
-1 more photographer
-1 video/film maker
-Post production help

The piece is going to be 3 dimensional and will involve still and moving imagery…  Keep an eye out for old TVs!!!
