We got this email from a band called “and the giraffe” last week. The video looks fun, check it out.
…my name is Nick Roberts and I’m in a Nashville based band called “And the Giraffe. (andthegiraffe.com)” We recently shot a music video for about $200 out in LA with a friend of ours who lives/works out there. We used a Black Magic Design cinema camera and strapped it to the front of a bicycle with some spare rigging equipment and duct tape and pointed the camera at the riders’ faces. We rode the bike around a few different parts of LA and drove a Uhaul van about 200 miles northeast of the city to capture some incredible golden-hour scenes in a desert.

A one-day installation of possible roadway improvements for the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway (MANGo) hosted by Melendrez (www.melendrez.com) and the City of Santa Monica.
"The event helped to convey complicated planning ideas, it helped the community see, feel, and touch potential improvements on-the-ground."
Thanks to everyone who came out, volunteered, and otherwise participated in our PopUp MANGo in Santa Monica. It was a big success with several hundred participants! We received excellent feedback about the future of the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway and are working with our team to compile it into a preferred design concept now.
The event, which was SoCal’s first pop-up street design event, was a free, fun-filled, family-friendly festival and community conversation about the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway (MANGo). Hosted by the City of Santa Monica and designed by Melendrez, in partnership with Community Arts Resources, Pop-Up MANGo invited the community to take part in the planning of a potential new Greenway for the Pico Neighborhood.
Pop-Up MANGo featured temporary installations of possible improvements for the corridor such as: traffic calming devices, curb extensions, enhanced landscaping, places for neighbors to gather, and wayfinding signage.
