Vimeo Awards Festival NYC recognizes Notes to Self --

After being shortlisted for the Vimeo Awards, the word is finally out that unfortunately our official video for "Nobody" has not been voted in as a finalist. However, Vimeo has hand picked our video to be screened with a select few of other choice work at the Awards Festival on June 7 - 9. It will be screened with the assets we produced as shortlisters; a short making of, as well as a directorial portrait created by myself & JR, that will screen in accompaniment w/ Nobody, all up on the big screen, in its full archivist of glory. Cop tickets if you're in NYC that wknd and you wanna see some wild film making & superb editing, and an ode to classic material on a slightly larger screen, with that degraded analog 90s video tape grain you can't seem to re-live enough for one lifetime. A special Thank You to all those Notes heads who voted & supported - voting was only a portion of their selection process, judges also deliberated, but we'll get'em next time y'all - It was an honour to be shortlisted with such great talent in the running, and we're very excited to have our pieces screened and seen at the festival, regardless. It's been well documented that our video for our song "Nobody" is World Class, thanks to y'all. Best of luck to the finalists. As many claimed on YouTube, Nobody was fuckin with this video, Haha... Love y'all for all the kind words and continued support. Our Nobody video as you know is dedicated to GURU (R.I.P Forever). We dedicate its arrival to the big screen via the Vimeo Awards NYC with this very opportunity, to the recent loss & memory of a legend, Adam "MCA" Yauch. We will never forget his contribution as an outspoken and extremely creative artist in his own right - the culture is forever grateful of/to MCA, Rest in Peace, Adam. Somewhere deep in the concept of bringing the visuals for Nobody to life, we channeled Nathanial Hörnblowér for the courage to pull such an homage off. CG and all. Thank you. Stay tuned.
