It was a night for dandies, and a simply dandy night! Dark Garden Unique Corsetry was at the de Young Museum in San Francisco’s gorgeous Golden Gate Park. It was Dandy-licious fashion night, in honor of the Gaultier exhibit, currently on display through August 19, 2012.

Beau Brummel and Ze Marlena corsets were showcased by a passel of gorgeous models with appropriate attitude (who were really rather sweet when we met them backstage). It was a lovely, fun night at the de Young, part of their “Friday Nights at the de Young” series. We were honored to be asked to film by Dark Garden, and hope to do so again. Enjoy!

Since the Life is Living Festival was in our part of San Francisco, Ian attended with his camera and was so impressed by the program that he put together this short film about the day as a public service. Find out more at LifeisLiving.org.

Ian is a library user extraordinaire so when the city decided to build our new neighborhood library a block from our apartment, he decided to document the build. It took about a year and a half to complete so he took photos with his cell phone whenever he was out, standing by the same lamp post. He then put the whole thing together into a time-lapse movie for the latest Ocean Avenue Film Festival.

After posting it on YouTube, we got contacted by Group 4 Architecture who designed the building. They posted the film on their website here.

Community performance venue “The Marsh” has been delighting audiences and supporting the careers of up-and-coming solo performers for 23 years. And through that entire time, they’ve had to make do with 4 different kinds of hand-me-down theater seats. And now, by gosh, it’s time for new ones!

Please enjoy the short promo video foolish tree films produced for the marsh. It features the very funny Geoff Hoyle as “The Geezer.” (Also the name of his one-man show, now at the Marsh through September 18, 2011.)

Promoting an event or campaign for your business, art or project? Video is the way to go, and foolish tree films will set you up right. Just fill out our Estimate Request Form to get started.

An evening in March of 2011 with the fabulous traditional Cuban band, “El Guajiro,” at the wonderful Italian/Argentinian restaurant, “Caffe D’Melanio.”

UPDATE: We’re very sorry to report that our friend, client and man of community awesomeness, Melanio, passed away early Saturday morning, April 16, 2011. He will be deeply missed. The caffe is still open and is now being run with reduced hours by Melanio’s sister and niece. Visit www.caffemelanio.com for more information.
