1. Natural Possession


    from Antony DeGennaro Added 3 0 0

    Someone is killing homeless people in Pioneer Square. Local artist John Willem has been known to suffer from mental delusions but he believes he is having psychic visions about the killer's identity; is it a gruesome, terrifying monster or the performance artist downstairs? Desperately reaching out to his vanity driven, lust crazed friends only gets him stabbed in the back and sinks John deeper into psychosis. Confessing his visions to the local police gets him ridiculed. Now John is in a race against borrowed time. It's up to him to save himself. Too bad John's own narcissism conceals a much more sinister plot; a running bet for control of the entire universe. This film was shot on Super 16 mm and set in Pioneer Square, Seattle. It examines the horror of homelessness and mental illness while poking fun at the local art scene. This film asks the question what exactly goes on inside the head of a mentally ill, narcissist artist struggling to save the universe from the forces of Good vs. Evil?

        • Environmental Justice in Pioneer Square


          from Michael Andrew Brennan Added 25 0 0

          I created this video in 2011 for a class project at the University of Washington's School of Social Work, where I was a graduate student from 2011-2013. At that time I was also working at a drop-in center for homeless adults in the heart of Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA. While Pioneer Square is a culturally diverse and socially dynamic downtown neighborhood known for its art galleries, nightlife, and restaurants, it is also known by locals as Seattle's "service ghetto". More social services exist in Pioneer Square than any other area of Seattle. This video is an attempt to shed light on some of the environmental justice issues facing Pioneer Square's street population. Rather than consult the "experts" often cited in newspapers, journals, and on television, I chose to conduct improvised street interviews with those whom I deem the "real experts" -- the people on the ground. I was deeply inspired, informed, and humbled by the half-dozen interviews I conducted. (Two of those interviews are featured in this video.) Through this project I developed several significant relationships with the interviewees who contributed to this video. I can only hope that I have given at least half the inspiration and wisdom as I have received. Despite the elementary quality of this video and the limitations of the video-maker, I hope the interviewees' dignity, authenticity, and depth of civic engagement is not lost. blessings, Michael

              First Thursday in Pioneer Square is the first Art Walk in the USA. The Art Walk in Pioneer Square is enhanced by the dozens of public art installations that can be found inside the 6 story building in 619 Western Ave. The experience in this art labyrinth is more exciting than going to the museum.

                • Cricket Campus Rail Jam Tour - PORTLAND FINALS


                  from Galvanic Design Added 1,893 1 0

                  PRESS RELEASE: It was a packed house at Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square for the finals of the Cricket Campus Rail Jam Tour. The Rose City was definitely feeling the excitement as the top riders from seven western states battled it out for bragging rights and their share of the $5000 in prize money. Everyone from businessmen sipping cappuccinos to the local Hawthorne hipsters were on site to witness the nations best college snow sliders. With a snow base of over ten feet, Mt. Hood was more than prepared to hook up our set-up crew with the five dump trucks of snow required for the grand finale. Anticipation built as the dump trucks roared into downtown, and the crowd continued to swell as the tricked-out Scion tC and xB’s showed up on the scene. Local shops, US Outdoor Store and Hillcrest were both on-site, providing a serious amount of free loot to shower over the crowd. Both shops were immediately swarmed with groms with the hopes of getting their paws on the mounds of product, possibly snagging autographs from Darrell Mathes & Brett Butcher, snow legends who were holding down the US Outdoor Store tent. At 2pm, Galvanic’s own DJ Wiky began spinning, riders checked in to receive the last of the Cricket Wireless jerseys, and the park crew put the finishing touches on the course for the final competition of the 13 stop tour. With kick-off time right around the corner, judges Tim Windell and Logan Fuquay took their places in the Red Bull judge towers as Nick Dirks, Jarad Hadi and Sammy Carlson climbed the FUEL TV DJ tower to get a solid view of the competition. The riders were poised on top of the scaffolding setup, sizing up the competition, slapping high-fives, and trying not to look nervous as they awaited the drop signal from the DJ tower. The FUEL TV cameras hit the switch as MC Chimpy T called the first competitors with an Active Culture Frozen Yogurt in hand. After four months of anticipation, the Cricket Campus Rail Jam Tour finals were finally under way. The college shreds were going all out, throwing down ridiculous combos and supplying the crowd with some serious carnage. Big-ups went out to Giro, who provided helmets at qualifying events, saving riders’ craniums from the 80-foot monster of snow and steel they attempted to conquer. For some, the sacrifice paid off, like Jaime Wabschall who laid down super clean 50-50s through the kink, landing her in third for the females. Becky Bruce was also able to put together solid combos on the kink with a 50-50 to front board, to hold it down in second. Tahoe shred Joanna Dzierzawski struck gold with the Best Overall Female performance and Best Female Trick with a textbook boardslide through the kink rail. Scott Pullman and John Ware put together top performances in the ski category, but the Best Overall Skier performance went to Collin Wright with a very solid showing on all three features. Wright also landed the Best Skier Trick with his buttery 270 switch-up 270 out on the kink. His performance bagged him $1000 in cash as well as a full setup from next season’s Spyder Venom line. The male snowboarders showed up for the finals ready for action, with a combination of post qualifier practice, tougher competition, and adrenaline pulsing through their veins. The finalists were a mix of the sickest collegiate riders in the country, making it a true battle of the best in the west. Civil Apparel’s John Adkins dropped jaws by acclaiming clean tail-presses through the kink followed by a 50-50 to backside 360 out of the kink. Collin Spencer was on fire all day with a 50-50 to frontside 360 out on the kink, coupled with a tail press to backside feeble with a 270 out. The Best Overall Men’s Snowboard Performance went to none other then Dylan Alito, making the 22-hour drive from Denver to stuff his wallet with close to 2k in cash. Dylan had more tricks than could fit on the judge sheet, taking Best Trick with a 50-50 to method to front board through the kink. Soon after, he dropped bombs on Portland with a 270 on to 270 off of the box, coupled with a moonwalk on the Windell’s stall feature. Post-event, the top riders got their 15 minutes of fame interviews with FUEL TV and various local news stations, giving these athletes the well-deserved attention from their top tier performances. As with the end of every event, it was time to put on a fresh Mt. Theory hoody and hit the legendary Red Bull after-party. Drinks flowed, bar tabs were maxed, and karaoke was sung. Some celebrated victory while some nursed battle wounds with tequila shots, and all toasted to a great tour and an even greater anticipated tour next year. An epic night in Portland was had by all, to say the least. A special thanks to the Campus Rail Jam Tour supporters, you have believed in the vision: “In college: a football player has a field, a basketball player has a gym, and snow-sports athletes need a venue to showcase their talents to their peers.” -Dan Genco, Galvanic Design founder This could not have gone off without the support of these companies: A big thank you to Cricket Wireless, Red Bull, Clif Bar, Scion, Spyder, Giro, Civil Apparel’s, FUEL TV, Snowboarder Magazine, Snowboard Magazine and Galvanic Design. Also, thank you to University of Colorado at Boulder, Colorado State University, Denver, University of Utah, San Diego, Fresno State, Boise State University, Gonzaga, University of Nevada Reno, Chico State, University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Portland Pioneer Square.
