The Emoji Song
Directed by Adam Volerich, NY, 3:27, Music Video, Brooklyn Premiere!

Is the modern man overdoing it with the emojis?  Actor/singer/songwriter Ben Rauch would argue a definitive YES!  “THE EMOJI SONG," is a cautionary, comedic music video exploring the dangers of today's relationships that can be both created and destroyed over the phone.  Rauch reminds us that emoji's have their place in a budding romance - but when they take over the entire relationship - you're bound to end up, as he did - stuck single with nothing to show for it but a sad face (not unlike the tearful emoji that ubiquitously signals our pain over text.) Whether the audience is a woman who's previously cut a relationship short over emoji overdose, or a man who recognizes his over-reliance on the expressive creatures that live in his phone -- "The Emoji Song" is truly a music video that anyone who has a smartphone can relate to!

ODE TO THE SINGING BUTLER brings to life the characters of Jack Vettriano's iconic painting, "The Singing Butler.” Told completely through movement and dance, the film explores the moments before the man and woman find themselves waltzing on the beach. With an original score by Jake Weinstein, the story follows the characters as they prepare for a picnic that will forever change their lives. This exploration inspires the audience to imagine life’s possibilities beyond one singular moment.

Directed by Zoe Map, Brooklyn, NY, 3:35, Music Video

"Dumb Dumb" is a vintage futuristic experience, a boom-bap anthem that features an all female cast of dancers  to Cipherella's thought provoking lyrics; to denigrate celebrity gossip and the general public's interest in trivial subject matter.  From the moment Cipherella presses play on her ghetto blaster stereo, viewers become enthralled by the 90's hip imagery. She and her crew begin marching through a parking lot styled in matching denim outfits. Her opening rhyme, “true story everything I say you type. World of collision, catch my vision, hop my flight” alerts fans of the hip-hop cosmos she intends to take viewers on in “Dumb Dumb.”
