    • "Stare"- A Breast Cancer Awareness PSA


      from jumP Added

      “Stare” to Save Lives- jumP & Poetica create an arresting ad for Breast Cancer Awareness Go ahead. Stare. Get a good look. David Johnston and Justin Tolley team up to co-direct a PSA for Breast Cancer Awareness in an effort to motivate women and men to examine themselves. “Stare” asks us to reflect upon our bodies, by presenting a ghostly vision of a woman uncovered. It’s what’s underneath the skin, what we don’t usually see, that matters. The awareness raised in “Stare” is a powerful and vital message of self-examination. “The inspiration behind “Stare” came from “repurposing the idea of looking,” Co-Director Justin Tolley reflects. “Anyone can be affected by breast cancer, regardless of whether you’ve been diagnosed before. You might know someone in your lifetime- a family member, a co-worker, an acquaintance- or it could be you.” Tolley states “There’s a responsibility that should come with looking.” We begin by seeing names and ages of survivors and non-survivors. As the camera shifts around the body, types of breast cancers surface like tattoos, and then symptoms as if it were all hiding underneath. “Some people emotionally shut down during spots like this,” states Director David Johnston. “However the rawness of this spot grabs your attention in such a way that connects you to the individual, and to yourself. Making that connection is imperative because it places the responsibility of looking, at ourselves and the people in our lives, for the benefit of their health.” “Stare” hits extremely close to home for jumP’s Executive Producer Alexandra Leal. “Its very personal” she states. “At age 40 my sister, without any prior family history, was diagnosed with stage 2B breast cancer. She leads a very health conscious life, which proves that the disease does not discriminate in terms of age, lifestyle or family history. It is an enemy that we can combat by educating men and women alike on the importance of checking yourself, as well as yearly mammograms.” Leal concludes by saying, “I think women, whether they have been affected by the disease or not, and the advertising industry in particular, will appreciate the rawness of the visuals. They are a form of ‘the objectification of women.’ But unlike what is commonly portrayed in mainstream media (advertising, pin-ups, Hollywood movies, magazines, etc) its ‘objectification’ serves a purpose.” Co-Director/Creative Director: Justin Tolley Co-Director/DP: David Johnston Executive Producers: Alexandra Leal Stefanie Bassett Editorial Company: jumP Editor: Justin Tolley Assistant Creative Director: Kadie Migliarese Copywriter: Justin Tolley Producer: Stefanie Bassett VFX/Production Company: Poetica Lead VFX Artist: Brian Kubovcik VFX Artists: Pierina Bustamante David Elkins Anton Anderson James Emmerich 3D Animator: Kirt Critoph Gaffer: Alexandra Lundy Audio Facility: Plush Mixer/Sound Designer: Nicole Pettigrew VO Talent: Tiffany Slagle

      • Interview: Yonder Mountain String Band


        from In The Band Added 302 3 0

        I called Penny Zemp at Partners In Music and asked if Yonder Mountain String band could make themselves available to me during their visit to New York City. She said I could shoot an interview and performance the day of their gig at Irving Plaza so long as I provided transportation for the band and their gear. I told Penny, "No problem," and waited for the date. The day of the gig, I hopped into my VW Westy and drove to Irving Plaza to collect the guys. Everyone got a nice laugh when they saw the van. We loaded everything up and headed up to midtown for the shoot. When we arrived at the studio the band sat down for an interview. Ben Kaufmann talks about the band's influences which, for a bluegrass band, are surprising - Frank Zappa to name one. Dave Johnston explains to viewers how bluegrass evolved from people expressing their wants, desires and fears through song. Later, Jeff Austin gives the real-deal take on what it's like being in the band. Afterward, the band was videotaped performing a couple of songs. You can watch "Sometimes I've Won" in Part II. The performance footage showed during the interview is from the song "Hill Country Girl."

        • True Repentance


          from David Johnston Added 174 0 0

          The problem today is not just that many are true to false god's, but multitudes are false to the true God. Damnable heresies are now dominant in multitudes of 'christian' churches. Perilous times are here! The Master Himself said, 'For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.' (Matthew 24:24) Those days are now here. Any gospel that denies the Lordship of Christ over the believer is a false gospel. This is a 'Severe Truth.' http://nbttonline.us/pdf_notes/G02.pdf

                      Almost every marriage ceremony includes the instruction from the pastor that marriage is not to be entered into lightly or thoughtlessly. Few who end up at the marriage altar, however, have any idea of what they are really entering into. The Seven Purposes of Marriage is a Biblical outline of God’s purposes for marriage. After all, marriage was His idea. If, as someone has said, "love is a dream," don’t let marriage be the alarm clock for you.
