Lost Time :: HELP ME Nears Release, Trailer Arrives

Earlier this year, I released my first true short film, the suspenseful REPOSSESSION.  It was a wonderful personal achievement, in the sense that I went from talking about ‘making films one day’ to having a film under my belt.  The experience of making REPOSSESSION taught me quite a bit about myself and the creative process.  So much, in fact, that less than a year later (within the same year, as a matter of fact), I am releasing my second short film.  HELP ME centers around a crew of abandoned location explorers that stumble upon a phenomenon they cannot comprehend.  The trailer is above, and keep an eye on the Upcoming Shows page of the website for information on screenings.

Stolen Moments :: The Deer’s Intimate Live Performance Of ‘Acid Wash’

Back in February of this year, The Deer were on the road (as they usually are).  While in Colorado, they set aside some time to perform Acid Wash live from Mountain Star Studio (located in Black Hawk).  With instruments ready, and a single light bulb to illuminate them and set the mood, the group poured themselves into this beautiful song, and the performance is one for the ages.  Take some time to immerse yourself, give it a like and a share, and maybe even a comment if the song moves you enough.

Local Hero :: Jim Govea Releases ‘Vinsky’ On The Masses

Like a shot of adrenaline from out of nowhere, San Marcos-based director Jim Govea has upped the stakes for any budding action director with the release of Vinsky, a cyber-punk 80’s action flick based around the titular detective.  Everything about the aesthetic of this project is shot on, and some of the stunts are downright crazy.  This is truly an entertaining piece of DIY art that is certainly worth your time.  Give it a like, give it a share, and who knows… maybe with enough subscribers, we may see the return of Vinsky at some point in the future…

Boogie Nights :: Protextor And Brother Bear’s ‘Not Tonight’ Video Arrives

In anticipation of the American Neon release, partners in crime Protextor and Brother Bear decided to drop a highly entertaining and visually stimulating music video.  Protextor already has a handful of admirable videos under his belt, and with the slight shift in sound direction this upcoming project is taking, it seems fitting that the video for Not Tonight should take on a heightened sense as well.  Director Zack Scott managed to take the familiar confines of Spiderhouse Ballroom and turn it into a glam-style roller disco ready to be rocked out.  Protextor and Brother Bear ooze charisma, and the cast of characters employed to make up the world of the video are perfectly placed.  This one will stick around with you for a while.  As a bonus, the crew even threw in a quick behind the scenes video!  Check them both out, throw some likes and shares around, and always support local.

Life Lessons :: THE PNTHN Drop Video For ‘Skip School’

School is back, but there’s no need to worry.  DC4PREZ of THE PNTHN has some advice for you in the form of Skip School, another dynamite music video from Jeffrey Garcia.  The song is fire, there are some familiar faces and places in the midst of the video, and the whole things looks like a million bucks.  With the upcoming release of the full length project from THE PNTHN (titled [From Disorder…]), I can only imagine that their will be more collaborations of this nature in the works.  I’m gonna keep my eyes and ears open, and here’s to hoping that others do the same.

Progress Daily :: O.M.S. Takes Part In YouTube Skate Challenges

In the quest to become a better skater, Old Man Skateboards founder Jansen Newcum has been truly pushing and challenging himself.  With each new video he posts, the growth shows, and lately, it seems Jansen is on the verge of some major skill leaps.  He recently posted a pair of videos that show this growth in the form of a couple of online challenges.  He takes part in both a high ollie challenge and a game of switch vs. regular SKATE, and fairs well in both.  Stay tuned to OMS for more inspirational skating, growth, focus and dedication… these practices can be applied to most any aspect of your life (except for the skating part).

Deep Rooted :: Dubb Sicks Releases New Music Video For ‘Dolla $to’

You’d have a challenge on your hands finding a more humble and down to earth MC than Dubb Sicks.  Not many people really and truly embrace their city and their lifestyle in such an honest and forthright manner.  This time around, Dubb embraces the values of living the non-baller glamour life with Dolla $to.  He went to DVZN Media, and the quality of the work speaks for itself.  A banging track and vivid visuals are hard to beat at any level… yet another shining example of how central Texas is killing it in 2017.
