VIA Benefit Show for Girls Rock

Leading up to Saturday, June 15th, I coordinated a music video premiere and fundraising event on behalf of the band VIA. The show was hosted by the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC as a benefit show for Girls Rock Asheville, a non-profit organization that leads a music camp for women and gender minorities.

In addition to VIA headlining and premiering their short film “Firefly” starring actress Katie Cassenti with dance choreography by Olivia Joy Harris. Other musical acts included Kathryn O’Shea, Miss Jean and the Love Cats, Moonlight Street Folk, and Rooster. I also designed the poster embedded below. Overall, the event was a great success for both VIA and Girls Rock, and I was glad to support both groups.

“Elevator Went” by Wyla // music video

In early June, Artificial Ink Creative assisted in the production of the music video “Elevator Went” by Wyla. The concept revolves around a dreamscape scenario where the band frontman Ed Madill experiences various political calls to action. The final product will have an online launch within the next few months.

The crew on the project was limited; directed by Rome Widenhouse, produced by Ted Kendrick, sound recording by Braethun Bharathae-Lane, with cameo acting roles by Erich Reinhard, Joshua King, and a host of extras who contributed to a crowd sequence. I was responsible for securing and maintaining locations, and can’t thank The Plug venue in downtown Asheville enough for their hospitality, as well as the Asheville Outdoor Special Events department for their assistance.
