    In March of 2013, Variable was commissioned by Edelman to produce four mini-documentary films along with the print advertisements for Pfizer's cause-driven campaign; "Get Old". The purpose of the campaign is to spread positive awareness on aging by showcasing stories that break the mold of the negative pre-conceived notions surrounding the topic. As a team of ambitious young creatives, we thoroughly grasp these negative connotations so we were thrilled to put our energy into a campaign message that we truly believe in. The first of four films features Hy Snell, an energetic and awe-inspiring gentleman. When asked how he felt about aging, Hy couldn't even comprehend why we were interested in the topic. It was as if "age" didn't even exist in his world. For Hy, "age" has had nothing to do with his joy and contentment in life. His immense passion for creating artwork has kept him moving forward without looking back for over seven decades despite his ongoing battle with failing eyesight. At 94 years-old and a dwindling 5% of his eyesight remaining, Hy continues to find inspiration due to the fact that he is literally seeing things differently every day. This fact spoke volumes to us since it is relatable on so many levels. In summary, Hy truly is a living testament who proves that each road block, as tough as it may seem at the time, can provide tremendous opportunity for growth and prosperity. -- Production Company | Post Production | Creative Collective: Variable Director | Editor: Jonathan Bregel Executive Producer: Tyler Ginter Producer: Alex Friedman Production Supervisor: Paige DeMarco Production Coordinator: Alexandra Van Voorst van Beest Cinematographer | Photographer | Colorist: Khalid Mohtaseb Art Director: Joseph Sciacca 1st AC | DIT : Dan Stewart Sound Mixer: Anthony Viera Assistant Editors: Dan Stewart, Jeff Levine Motion Graphics: Maha Mohtaseb Creative Assistants: Ashley Horton, Michelle Brooks, Dotsie Bregel Client: Pfizer Agency: Edelman Creative Development & Casting: Edelman & Variable Executive Creative Director: Jimmie Stone Executive Producer: TJ Sponzo Copy Supervisor: Kristen Dietrich Original Score: Keith Kenniff Unseen Music, 2013 | www.unseen-music.com Sound Mix & Design: Brooklyn Post Studio www.brooklyn-post.com -- www.WeAreVariable.com twitter.com/WeAreVariable hello@WeAreVariable.com

                Video by John Birdsong The Introducing Series The Window at 125 at The Roger Smith Hotel Introduction #9 Introducing ( http://rogersmithlife.com/art/the-introducing-series ) is an initiative that creates a platform for emerging artists to be formally introduced by an advocate of their art and future career. Twice a month a new artist will be presented by their champion and will also have an exemplary piece of work exhibited at The Window at 125. Tim Fite Introduced by Stephanie Pereira Old Peephole was created specifically for the Window at 125. It is a combination of pencil/ink/acrylic/beeswax drawing on paper, and stop motion charcoal animation. The piece is part of an ongoing exploration of "underdrawing." "Underdrawing" is a two tiered concept that originated in a fascination with X-rays of old masterworks. The peephole in "Old Peephole" serves the same function as the X-ray machine, giving the viewer a means of looking through the artwork to the "underdrawing," which in this case happens to move and make noise (this is the first tier). The second tier of "underdrawing" is the notion of simplified mark making for an economical narrative structure. Less process, more meaning. Tim and I met in college, years ago. Back then, he was my mentor, teaching me about art, and also the RA at my dorm, keeping me out of trouble. Tim can only be described as someone who is constantly making: books, collages, paintings, drawings, videos, prints (upon prints upon prints), music and merch for his various bands. During college he was signed to Lava/Atlantic, and more recently to ANTI. So his main gig thus far has been music (which is exceptional). Through music, Tim has continued to make visual work pushing the boundaries of his live performances with a multi-media show that employs Keynote, drawing, storytelling, sing-alongs, a light-up boombox sculpture and one smart laptop. The thing about Tim is that anyone who knows his work, is excited about it. Those of us "in the know" have commissioned animations, broadsides, prints and even a Ketubah or two; we have bartered for things we could not afford; booked him shows whenever we had one to book (and extended those shows when they did so well); and collected his drawings, prints and paintings from the internet and from his living room. We have told our friends about him, and co-opted his brilliance for our own ends. Tim, quite simply, is an incredible artist. I am "introducing" him, simply so that you may share in the joy of his work, and engage him in your own creative efforts. -Stephanie Pereira Tim Fite lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He makes art and music in equal measure. He has a recording contract with Anti records, and is a print shop steward at the Center For Book Arts. No matter how hard he tries to make serious music, someone always ends up laughing. No matter how hard he tries to make funny artwork, someone always ends up wearing a black turtleneck. Most recently, Fite was praised in the New Yorker for his musical/visual contribution to the Brooklyn Philharmonic Outside/In fellowship, "The standout piece at that event was "CopyCat," an ode to a runaway feline, by the singer-songwriter Tim Fite; at once satirical, dreamlike, foulmouthed, and bittersweet, with rugged string quartet writing to match, it was a feral original creation." You can see more of Tim’s work at: http://cargocollective.com/timfite Stephanie Pereira is the Director of the Art Program at Kickstarter. Before joining Kickstarter she was the Associate Director of Learning and Engagement at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center. For nearly a decade, she has worked with artists and arts organizations to produce and curate shows, festivals and singular events. Since getting her BFA at Mason Gross School of the Arts and MA in Arts Administration at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago all she has wanted to do, and has done, is work with artists to "make stuff." And so she has done. Most recently, she has been collaborating with Tim Fite. They plan to take the world by storm. This piece will occupy The Window at 125 from October 15-30th 2012 To accompany the work in the window space, a celebration of each artist and the formal introduction will take place in the form of a conversation between the champion and artist. They are posted in its entirety every two weeks on http://rogersmithlife.com/art/the-introducing-series People. Place. Ideas. Art. Culture. Stories. Roger Smith, your New York City experience.

                      Note: We don't wear these clothes. It was just for this video, haha. Never again will we wear such horrible covers for our skin. From loving exercise, to simply hating it. Regardless, this is our new years resolution. To get healthy. Not quite a new one, eh? ;D My personal new years is to do well enough to get into college. If that fails I'm done for. [/dramatic] This is also my first HD video which I'm quite pleased with. Hanging out with Jed and Fia made today one of the best days of this year. (Jed said: Best day of the year so farr.) It took us around three hours to record, which wasn't bad. And the editing process was a blast! I can happily say that Media is the course I wish to pursue in college later this year.
