KijiK does projects for high profile clients, but we also do projects that are low key and under the radar in terms of national visibility because we take on clients that we believe in. There are two projects that we are excited about and we feel are worth mentioning due to the strength of the stories and the visibility that we feel will come in the future from both.
One is quite high profile and we are extremely pleased to be a part of it. It's being tentatively called "Backstage of the Backstage" and is a series of videos and mini documentary hosted by John Legend's brother Vaughn Anthony. It's over three years of backstage footage from three years of touring with Mr. Legend and his brothers recounting of the incredible times and places they've seen. It coincides with the soon to be released album from Vaughn Anthony which I can say is going to blow people away.
The second project is called 64 Toy Pianos at Vizcaya. We recently covered this event put on by Wendy Mae Chambers, renowned for her stunning performance extravaganza's. The event took place at the amazing Vizcaya Italian Renaissance-style villa and formal gardens built in 1916 as the winter residence of industrialist James Deering. It's an historical landmark in Miami sprawling over acres of lush foliage and vista views of baroque art, sculptures, gazebo's and exotic plants set against the backdrop of Biscayne Bay. Scattered throughout this wonderland were 64 Toy (miniature) pianos each playing original compositions individually, in quartets and in tandem. We weren't to sure what to make of this project until the actual event and can say it was indeed a day to be remembered. The whimsical and sureal combination of the sprawling Alice in Wonderland garden and the full sized people playing toy pianos was both campy and brilliant. Loved it! We've decided to cut a bigger piece on this one, which should be done in the next couple of weeks.
We'll have footage and coverage on both soon but for now here's a link to a great video and a favorite so far for 2009 Tommy Spark's "She's Got Me Dancing":
