We’re coming up to the end of Casey Wei’s Karaoke Music Video Maker Free Store residency and installation, and it has been intense! Four bands shooting videos using green screen, black walls, smoke machine, custom backdrops, a swimming pool, and a galvanized garbage can; plus all of the people who booked time to record or play songs or sing along with karaoke backing tracks on Fridays and Saturdays (all of the remaining slots are full, so we’re sorry if you didn’t get a chance to do one yourself).

Here’s a look at the rushes from the third week of shooting. Watch for a screening this summer of many of the finished videos — we’ll let you know!

Also coming up: a solo exhibition by Jamey Braden, opening May 18; more of the Spectre of Fascism Free School, which will re-start on May 4 and run until July 13, every Thursday; a screening series this summer that we’re calling Trouble (announcement soon); and a super amazing community engagement project for youth. Details on this and more, very soon.
