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"
