ACT in 2015

There have been some mild shake-ups in the A City Traced world – Will moved himself to the wild and beautiful land of Oregon and Prudence (who is writing this blog post) has been working as a researcher on the funky finances of New York political campaigns. But, thanks to the help of old and new friends, ACT is well on its way to become a complete and awesome film and we can’t wait for what 2016 will bring!

Since the summer, we have been working with the amazing editor and film-maker Yuki Kokubo. She is relentless on guiding our story and we look forward to one day sharing the fruits of her labor! We cannot recommend enough her film, KASAMAYAKI (MADE IN KASAMA), a beautiful and mediative work on creativity and family after Japan’s 2011 tsunami:


Also, we have continued to shoot in Willets Point.. even on the night of Halloween aka Game Four of the World Series of the Mets vs the Royals. You can’t beat that hometeam exuberance!


Martyna Starosta has been amazing as our go-to cinematographer and I also had the pleasure to work with both artist Raoul Anchondo and artist/musician Raphael Peterson with sound. You can see Martyna and Raphael getting the roaring crowd at the end of the above Mets video. Check out some more production shots below:

Willets Point is still very much open! Come by and get your vehicle fixed.

I think I mentioned that Raphael is a musician, but did you know he also recently dropped a single? Take us out ShapeKing!


Happy 2015 and a Happy New Year from the A City Traced team!
