I’m immediately enthralled by the display of talent and vision in this breathtakingly raw video, featuring our seasoned dancer/model, Nathan Mitchell. He and friend, Phillip Lopez, capture a beautiful interaction between dancer and camera against the grimy back drop that is 5am on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles, and it’s left everyone in a little bit of a hypnotic haze.
Here is “Fred Astair with a Stomach Full of Corn Chips and Valium” by Phillip Lopez.
Man, do we have the most wonderful models ever! Photogenics alum, Shaina Danziger, (model/author/activist) has spent the last four and a half months channeling her talent and energy towards a cause not many of us knew existed. The campaign, featuring Anthony Keidis of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Moby, Duff McKagan, Steve O and Matt Lucas, aims to raise awareness for an Animal Rights group based out of Hong Kong called Animals Asia which is an organization that is working tirelessly to put an end to both the cruel and horrific practice of bear bile farming as well as the cat and dog meat trade. The campaign has already been featured by NY Daily News, Vogue Italia, and Conde Nast Live.
And if the campaign photo doesn’t already tug on our heart strings enough, the campaign video, written and directed by Shaina herself, should do the trick! With a clever tagline “Let a Bear Shit in the Woods,” the campaign is a satirical PSA which Shaina hopes will grab the attention of animal lovers worldwide. It was a no-brainer for us! Check out the campaign including Photogenics models, Courtney Money, Therese Tabbert, and Giavanna Witted.
