Rhymesayers20: Relive the Experience
Whoa, what a night. The Rhymesayers pulled off the impossible and got almost all the artists to ever grace a Rhymesayers stage back to Minneapolis for an epic 6- hour rap show at the Target Center.
We had over 13 camera operators covering the event ranging from stage coverage to various roaming documentary cameras, and fan/artist diary booths.
I have a feeling there will be some more content coming from this show...
Frog Bikes - The Adventurers
In March, 1Light Films traveled to the UK to film a Brand spot for Frog Bikes. We worked with Adventure Advertising on this one, an agency based out of Minnesota. If you don't know 'em, check 'em out.
This piece is more like a short film than a commercial. Adventure and 1Light came up with a fun story about two brothers whose boundaries are limitless on their Frog Bikes.
The whole trip was 6 days. Just enough time to take in the sites, sounds, and local beverages....
Looking forward to more with Adventure Advertising, and Frog Bikes
On the Ground- Heiruspecs
This was a collaboration between 1Light directors Melby, and Victor, with choreography from Alissa Paris Gilbert. Melby directs the warehouse dancer, and Chastity Brown's performance, while Victor created the band's performance space in his direction.
We love the visuals in this project. A beautiful song, and our dancer, Eshay, expresses it perfectly.
Doomtree "Gray Duck" (Official Music Video)
This one was a blast. Amazing crew, great group in Doomtree. Looking forward to doing more action.
Atmosphere - Camera Thief (Official Video)
Pre-pro, pre-pro, pre-pro. This one is all about the Pre-Pro. Melby from 1Light took 3 trips out to the desert to find the locations in this video. Listening to the song, he walked through every step. Almost takes away the fun when you know exactly how it's going to go.
Bahamian Son Movie Trailer
Bahamian Son is 1Light's first feature film.
Bahamian Son is an independent feature film, based on true events, from the life of the writer Reggie Henderson. The story follows Kevin as he sets out to find his father, whom he hasn't seen in more than thirty years. During his journey, Kevin examines his own life and the family he has built for himself, as well as his childhood growing up in the projects of North Minneapolis. After Kevin tracks down his father, he travels to the Bahamas to meet him. What happens in the Bahamas opens Kevin's eyes to a world and a history he never knew existed. It's also another test of Kevin's beliefs regarding family and loyalty, and what it means to be a son, a father, and a man.
Rhymesayers European Tour
Since crew member Melby was 16, he's listened to Rhymesayers Records. Artists like Atmosphere, Brother Ali, and POS had, and still have, a significant influence on him. It was a goal of his to work with these guys on a professional level, but to have the opportunity to travel across Europe with them, making documentary films with his best friends and 1Light crew mates, was beyond those dreams.
1Light Films traveled 9 countries, 13 cities, making mini docs daily along the way. At the end of the trip, we made a feature film titled "The Rhymesayers European Tour", and premiered it at the Twin Cities film festival in 2012. The feature is currently on track for wide release in 2016.
This is the last video in the series. We recommend you watch them from the beginning, after this one. There are 13 episodes.
Atmosphere - Bob Seger- Music Video
A retelling of the Paul Bunyon myth, Atmosphere's "Bob Seger" video was a fantastic effort by everyone involved. Set in the 1800's in colonial Canada, watch Paul extract his revenge on the Queen's Army.

Republic of Couture - Midtown Omaha
Don't think of Midtown Omaha when you think fashion and culture? Think again.
1Light Films had fun down in Omaha with our buds over at The NEWBLK agency.
