Imprint LA

Imprint LA 2008:: A 1 day conference was with Kenya Hara-Art Director for MUJI, Sean Baptiste-Rock Band, Hiroshi Fujiwara-Fragment, David Wilson-Kangol, jeffstaple-STPL, Michael Kuhle-Lomography, John C Jay-W+K.. and many others.

Below are a couple of pics of Hiroshi Fujiwara-Fragment, David Wilson-Kangol, jeffstaple-STPL, Michael Kuhle-Lomography, and John C Jay-W+K as moderator.. speaking on “The Cult of Collaboration.” The lecture spoke on many different themes in regards to the history, pro’s, cons, likes and dislikes of collabo’s.. They also talked about how Fragment and Kangol’s collaboration came to fruition as well as STPL and Lomography’s collaboration came to be..

I really liked the 1-2-1 talk between Jeff and Hiroshi.. Jeff and Hiroshi spoke openly.. Jeff at times asking some meaty questions..

The session.. ended with a light hearted question from the audience(via text), “are rolled up pants the next trend” Hiroshi looked at his pants and looked at Jeffs pants(they both were rolled up) smiled and said…. I guess so…..

Thanks Raymond-URB for look’n out…

Johnny Cash Screening

Johnny Cash Screening: Repost from our buddies at Evil Monito

Screening of Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison
The Hammer Museum – Santa Monica, CA
Event: 10/3/08

The making of Cash’s landmark album is the narrative arc of this new documentary about a concert recorded in a prison cafeteria and captured by legendary rock photographer Jim Marshall. Two prisoners’ lives are also interwoven into the structure of this film that examines the transition of Cash’s character and his career. The presence of life in Folsom, the obstacles its prisoners faced and the struggles Cash encountered are brought to the surface. Original animation, interviews, and long lost archival material make this a compelling journey with one of America’s most celebrated icons revealing a complex unknown man in black. Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison celebrates his music, the history of an unprecedented recording, and its significance in understanding a life forever defined by darkness and light.

West Coast Premiere.
Starts at 7:00pm
Post-screening Q&A with filmmaker Bestor Cram.
