Behind the camera: Cory Ring

As my curiosity about the field of film & video increases, I find myself crossing paths with people are are really good at what they do. I love to chop it up with people about their craft, especially those far more advanced with me, soI thought it could be cool to feature these conversations about Film & Video here on printmatic.net and call it Behind the Camera.

Well this first feature is on film student Cory Ring.  I found Cory through his fan-made video he made for a song of mine called “6 a.m” (from the Sign Language EP – buy it if you haven’t yet) and “Big Time” from the Latimore Platz Smokey Part Two EP.   There are a lot of fan-made videos out there, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that this might be the best one I’ve ever seen, and that it’s a huge compliment that my music was able to inspire such a creation.  Once I saw it I knew I had to interview Cory.

Check out the video:

Critically acclaimed mc/producer and Soul Position frontman Blueprint, returns with his highly anticipated sophomore solo release Adventures in Counter-Culture. Experimenting with synths, keyboards, and drum machines, Adventures in Counter-Culture touches on Blueprint’s cynicism with the world, his disdain for pop culture, the state of politics and an apathetic, uninspired society. The album encompasses every facet of music Blueprint knows. It blurs genre lines and connects his hip hop pedigree with his early days in the church choir, to the R&B bands he was a part of in high school, to his new found interest in rock and electronic music.

After a five year musical journey, Blueprint has emerged with his greatest effort to date. A culmination of self discovery and societal critique, Adventures in Counter-Culture is just that. The adventure begins March 1st, 2011.

Dan Monick: Seven Years with Atmosphere & Rhymesayers

Minneapolis photographer and all around cool dude Dan Monick just released a book called Seven Years with Atmosphere & Rhymesayers, cataloging his travels with the group as well as the growth of the Rhymesayers label over that period of time.  Obviously I’m pretty biased because I know all the parties involved and I’m also an artist on Rhymesayers, but regardless of that fact the book is all kinds of awesome.  Here’s a short video feature on Dan: Continue reading
