The Hole

Directed by Courtney Sell and Billy Feldman.

 Consisting of five blocks around the Brooklyn-Queens border, 'The Hole' or sometimes referred to as 'The Jewel Streets', is a a neighborhood full of contradiction and mystery, an area lost in time, evoking images of both the Wild West and a post-apocalyptic future. Thirty feet below sea level, home to the Federation of Black Cowboys of New York. 
An antithesis of glossy New York City, 'The Jewel Streets' area is a surreal landscape consisting of abandoned homes, broken down vehicles, and swampy patches of open land where chickens run free and Cowboys patrol on horseback. The surrealism lies in the fact that just twenty minutes away, resides one of the biggest and most powerful cities in the world

iDance video with Russians on Brooklyn Bridge

 Directed by Renat Zarbailov.

Spontaneous music video was shot on July 23, 2008 on the Brooklyn bridge, NYC.
Yulya, Lena, Olga, and Nikita were offered  to shoot this iDance without any
preparation or rehearsal. The dancing Russian young women take off dancing across the Brooklyn Bridge in an inspired carefree improvisational whirlwind while intertwining with tourists on the famed walkway.
