INDIESTREET

It’s officially September - how did this happen?! Time is flying by! It helps to know that, with every passing month, new milestones are popping up for us to celebrate. This week (specifically September 1st) marked the exciting 5th anniversary of The 78 Project! As an Indie Street partner film, “The 78 Project” is also a special type of musical documentary - one that showcases a journey across America as filmmakers Alex Steyermark and Lavinia Wright set out to make one-of-a-kind 78rpm records with a variety of musicians. The catch? Well, they are using a Presto 1930's direct-to-disc recorder. The unique project behind the film has actually been running since one fateful summer afternoon at The Brooklyn Botanic Garden on September 1, 2011. The team will be celebrating their anniversary by revisiting some of their favorite performances with the crazy talented assortment of artists they have had the pleasure and good fortune to work with over the past half a decade. You can revisit and stream the results of the 1st ever episode here, featuring Dawn Landes singing “The Brown Girl”. Alternatively, you can buy the vinyl copy of the original soundtrack to the film here and the digital copy via iTunes or Amazon. Love the music and want more? Be sure to check out the incomparable feature, “The 78 Project”, on Indie Street. By watching, you support our partner filmmakers in their continuing quests to tell new and innovative stories. For more information on the project and the film, check out their website or find them via Twitter and Facebook. Happy 5th Birthday, guys! Here's to many more magical and musical years to come!  

 

Just released this week on Vimeo, A Song Still Inside is a character driven drama that draws you in while quietly provoking suspense. The film is a gutsy emotional dissection of love submerged in our changing gender roles. It is wonderfully shot and acted...much congrats from IndieStreet to this successful directorial debut film from Gregory Collins. (starring Rodrigo Lopresti, Susan Highsmith, and Jayce Bartok) Purchase the film on Vimeo on Demand by clicking here:

Polish artist Pawel Kuczynski is one of our favorite satirical illustrators in the world. He offers a truly unique style and tackles many of the world's complex issues with his unique visions. From light hearted social media pieces to heavier human rights, he is an artist who makes his audience really think hard about the world and society they live in. These our are favorites to date, but you can check out his Facebook page here for more works from his ten years of creating illustrations.

On IndieStreet we love innovative environmental concepts, and we love cold beer! A Danish firm has combined these two loves with their underground beer fridge that can be sunk into the garden or terrace. It takes advantage of the cooler underground conditions to keep your beers chilled. How do you say street creds in Danish? You can learn more about the company and buy the eCool here. It's currently priced at $349.00. As they say at eCool: Lets "Save the world - one earth-cooled beer at a time"
