We Are The Sun

We started filming and documenting big art efforts last year at Burning Man, and this year we had the pleasure of being part of the incredible build crew for Catacomb of Veils, one of the largest art structures ever built on the Playa.

It was a tremendous experience, that will stay with us forever, and created a new family network of insanely talented artists and friends. We are now happy to share this video we recently completed that shows the crazy amount of effort it takes to bring a project like this to reality.

Hope you enjoy! We are always looking for other amazing projects to help out with at Burning Man, so feel free to reach out to us at any point if you have something brewing in the pipeline.

Survey

Our latest video is a quick introspective showcase of the emptiness of the desert during survey for Catacomb of Veils at Burning Man.

With the use of our Inspire 1 quadcopter, we were able to capture some simple vignettes of the arid landscape during the very start of what will soon become a city of 70,000 people.

Veils

We are very proud to share our on-going photo documentary project with Catacomb of Veils, one of the largest and most ambitious art projects ever at Burning Man.

Please follow the link below for the latest and most up-to-date gallery, or keep checking our blog here as we'll be selecting some of our favorites on and off over the next two months.

The Crew

Typically every year we join a Burning Man project, or two, to help build an art piece, a structure, an experience. Art for art's sake. All volunteer work, purely for the process of building a community, creating a journey and an experience that thousands of people will be able to take part of in the Black Rock City desert.

This year, we're actively working with both Sonic Runway and Catacomb of Veils.

As part of the build crew for both, we've been taking tons of photos and creating film content to tell the stories of the crews, the build, and why we all get together to do something as temporal as this – something that will literally only last one week.

We've been sharing a lot of this work already on this website, but this time around we want to share a more personal story. We edited this wonderful piece together, and we couldn't be prouder of the results. The images were shot by two great crew members from LA, Samuel Steinman and Matthew Goldstein. The film was edited by Afonso Salcedo.

We're starting a series of videos that tells a more personal story of why we get involved in large-scale art projects like this. This is our first one. Let us know what you think.
