JonMarc Edwards Artist Profile

SmashWerks Films was honored to tell the story of JonMarc Edwards through his artistry and the creation of his thought provoking interactive installation,
FLUTTER, by creating a multitude of diverse edits for his fanbase. 

A sensual and conceptual installation, participants will intermittently be enveloped in a flurry of text, meaning and chaos. FLUTTER is an experience that connects both the visually stunning with the metaphorically inspiring. Sly, funny and wise, the conceptual installation visually asserts that language is an essential element like air, water, fire and wind (and as ubiquitous.) FLUTTER empowers participants to interact and make sense of the linguistic fabric that is all around us; concrete, profuse, disposable – unique!

Please enjoy the teaser, 3 minute, and 7 minute pieces we produced for him below.

Art In The Streets With Shepard Fairey and More

The Art in the Streets Exhibit at MOCA in Downtown LA showcased 50 of the most renowned street artists
bringing their color to the world. We were honored to interview Shepard Fairey & Sharp for this piece.

Live Experimental Theater

SmashWerks had an amazing experience shooting the play, Humilious; a post apocalyptic drama which explores and challenges the way we perceive the afterlife.
Directed by the talented Robert Catalusci and shot on the steps of City Hall Los Angeles in a single take, it was a masterfully executed 6 camera shoot including an 18 foot Jib. It premiered at The Independent in downtown LA to an enthusiastic sold-out audience and is currently touring museums in the US and China.
Check out the trailer below:
