SNL, ATCQ, Redux November 13, 2016

Hello! With the US election so close behind us, it was only natural that Saturday’s Saturday Night Live show dealt with the election’s outcome in various ways. The program also featured the musical guest A Tribe Called Quest. The band performed with a tribute to late Tribe member Phife Dawg, who passed away earlier this year. Francisco had already created his own tribute to Phife and ATCQ, which I’m presenting to you again now. Please enjoy!

Insights On the Road September 29, 2016

Hello, it’s Thoughtful Thursday! From crowded shelves, to teetering hardcover end tables, to an overloaded Kindle, our books are everywhere. Many are old friends, while some will never be read. Others have given us help and clarity with their carefully chosen words. When these beloved works have offered up their insights to us, do we still need to hold on to the physical objects? In this short film, Francisco delves into this discussion, so please buckle up for the ride and enjoy!

To Make Your Mark August 30, 2016

Happy Media Monday on Tuesday! Today’s film is about art. What would you risk to make the art you want to create? Being ridiculed instead of recognized? Wondering if anyone will ever see in your art what you see in it, rather than enjoying the fruits of your labor while you are still alive? Shot on a blustery day in Copley Square, Boston, MA, Francisco tackles the question most artists grapple with in pursuing their passion. Enjoy!
