This is my little side hustle. A bike safety products company called RydeSafe. We make primarily Reflective Bike Stickers that make you more visible at night. They reflect like back its source using microscopic glass spheres embedded in a substrate. Which means someone sitting behind the steering wheel with their headlights on will see you a whole lot better at night.
Please note. As of recording, “outside activity” (walk, run, bike) while staying 6ft away from people is allowed under NYC’s quarantine guidance.
Otherwise please STAY HOME and do your part to stop the spread. It’ll save lives. Whether you’re young, middle, or old! With symptoms or without.
I’m sharing this video provide an non-editorialized window into life in NYC. Even though empty streets are freaky, it’s heartening that people are collectively changing their behavior to stop this virus. Tough times, but we’ll get through this. Hopefully more connected to and supportive of each other.
This bike ride started in South Brooklyn then across the Brooklyn Bridge, up to Times Square, back south and across the Williamsburg Bridge. Neighborhoods noted throughout.
Check out this user-generated content campaign Snapchat just launched!
Each spot features a different pair of real friends, from all around the world, talking about their relationship. In a fake world of social media, Snapchat’s ephemeral messaging is better suited to one-to-one and one-to-few interactions than say – BookFace or Finstagrom
It was a multi-month effort by Snapchat with the help of the brilliant minds at SpecialGuest in Brooklyn, NY.
I helped SpecialGuest out for a month or so earlier this summer with some Creative Direction. I worked on a few aspects of the brief including writing scripts for and helping with an edit of a global supercut. To show the breadth of the campaign.
Like most big campaigns we did a ton of work that won’t see the light of day. And I wasn’t involved in this project long enough to include in my portfolio, but thought it was pretty darn nifty, so wanted to share here on Clune’s Blawg.
Every shot is a different facade of a New York City pizza parlor — shot from across the street.
I was inspired by the rigorous typologies of German photographers Bernhard and Hilla Becher and also director Chantal Akerman‘s unobtrusive 1977 film News From Home – which features long shots of New York City streets accompanied by VO of her reading letters sent by her mother in Belgium
Pizza the Musical is a short film I created and directed for The Museum of Pizza – a monthlong popup exhibition in Brooklyn, NY. I wrote the piece in collaboration with maestro Sarah Fiete who also composed the music. Produced with the good people at Ghost Robot.
In this divided world, I wanted to bring people together around the greatest thing ever. Pizza: The Great Unifier. From kings to peasants, everybody loves a good slice. Despite it’s universal appeal, pizza preferences vary greatly from person to person. And goodness can pizza opinions get passionate! What style is best? — New York? Detroit? Chicago deep dish? What’s the proper way to eat a slice? Fork and knife or folded in half? — Or perhaps the most divisive issue of all: Does Pineapple have ANY place on a pizza?
Pizza the Musical sets about to answer these questions. And shows the world how “we’re all just one pizza in a pan.”
Sound on. This underground hike was extremely worthwhile. If you’re ever in the highdesert of central Oregon check it out. You can hike a mile down a cavernous tube carved by molten magma thousands and thousands of years ago. It’s pitch dark so you rent powerful lanterns to look at the rocks and contemplate geologic time and your relationship to the planet.
Yeah yeah. I was the tool with the Go Pro strapped to his head. But this footage of class 2 and 3 rapids shooting down the Deschutes in Central Oregon turned out pretty cool. Thanks for the great time Sun County Tours!
I quick chopped together this minute of Sakura. Shot on iFoneX. Cut to Akiko Tsuruga’s organ rendition of SAKURA. Cherry blossoms and magnolias in bloom at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Plus me filming Japanese tourists getting their picture taken by me. It was a lovely day and everyone was in a happy mood. Everyone I saw at least.
