Pink Dawn Video Launch Invite & Teaser

PINKDAWN.releaseparty.poster.FINAL

This past May I was introduced to Carmela Antonio in a coffee shop on Ossington by an angel. Carmela’s vibrant energy and enthusiasm had me hooked right off the bat, but then she loaded up a new song she had recorded, strapped her headphones on me, and inspiration struck. I had been looking for a new artist full of potential to try out my hand at directing with, and Carmela’s muse hit me hard. “Pink Dawn” is the track. It is an ethereal rendition of the fragility of unrequited love. It is streaming now exclusively on carmelaantonio.com. Be sure to have a listen. The video will have it’s inaugural screening with a live performance by Carmela on Sept. 15th at Milk Glass Co. The video debut performance will naturally take place amongst the opening of The Goddess Array Pt. 2 art show. Doors are at 6pm. Show is at 10pm. Party until LATE. We have much to celebrate. Please consider this your formal invitation. RSVP to jennifer@jennifertoole.com. xo

Acronym Ensemble.

The Acronym Ensemble is a group of twelve musicians from NYC who are dedicated to unearthing the unpublished musical scores of the Baroque era. Have a listen at the hauntingly beautiful yet very civilized sounds of their latest album, WUNDERKAMMER, and make sure to go to the next show. Find concert listings HERE.

We shot this series a couple months back in the middle of an oppressive New York heat wave with only the small risk of NY traffic to contend with. I love a good thrill. xo

Magenta Foundation: Flash Forward Incubator

I shot the talented teens in Magenta’s Flash Forward Incubator again this year. These are a few touching outtakes. Check out the students’ incredibly raw and personal works of art on the Magenta website HERE. The works will be on display and up for auction on June 23rd at the Clint Roenisch Gallery in Toronto. xo

The Flash Forward Incubator Program is dedicated to supporting emerging artists within the high-school setting. While proposing a new and exciting model for arts education and arts funding, the Incubator Program prepares students for their transition out of high school and into the next phases of their artistic careers.
