We'd like to say a big "Happy Holidays" to all the great people we get to work with - clients, music partners, web developers and others on this journey - you know who you are. And what better way than to do it in song? Shout out to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for his little ditty "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy", performed so excellently here by BForB maintstays The Mag Seven in a video produced by our new friends RED Digital Cinema. From us to you, may your holidays be bright and merry, and your 2017 utterly awesome.
We're excited today to launch an opportunity for Herewith, a new "beach lifestyle" print and web magazine founded by three surf industry vets that we've worked with on and off for years. This ain't your mom's "coastal living" magazine - it's a modern take aimed at the discerning (dare we say "hip") beachgoer/ocean enthusiast. Herewith's editors are looking to BForB for indie, garage and dream pop (three of our faves!), and we're than happy to serve 'em up. Welcome, Herewith!
As avid cyclists, snowboarders and skiers (and parents of little ones involved in these activities), we understand the importance of protecting oneself, particularly one's brain! So we're thrilled to launch an opportunity today for Giro, one of the world's largest manufacturers of helmets and other protective accessories for cycling and winter sports. We'll be assisting their crew in sourcing and licensing songs for use in promotional videos like this one featuring BForB artist JEFF The Brotherhood. Welcome aboard, Team Giro!
As huge fans of their products, we're thrilled to launch an opportunity for premier watch and accessories brand Nixon. This Encinitas, CA-based company has been cranking out gorgeous products since 1998, including their recent Star Wars collection, which will have you fan boys and girls drooling. We're excited to provide them with awesome jams for their videos. Welcome aboard, Team Nixon!
We're very excited to be working with accomplished action sports filmmaker and videographer Joe Carlino on his upcoming short film "Dayumm", which chronicles the travels and unbelievable shredding of two of snowboarding's brightest lights: Olympic gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg and X-Games gold medalist Halldor Helgason. We worked with Joe previously to source tracks for "The Other Side", his 6-episode profile of Sage that features a variety of tracks from BrandsForBands (like "It's Been So Long" by These Machine Are Winning, featured in the trailer above). We can't wait to see what he comes up with this time.
We have many vivid and awesome memories of being 10 years old, tear-assing around the neighborhood on our Mongoose bikes. So it's with much excitement that we announce today's launch of a Mongoose opportunity in BrandsForBands. Their editors are looking to us to help out with music for promotional videos, and we're only too happy to oblige (and our 10 year old selves are pretty stoked, too). Funny how things come full circle. Welcome, Team Mongoose!
We're excited to be working with our friends at NYC agency Figliulo & Partners to source songs for a suite of web videos they're producing for AC Hotels, the design-heavy, boutique hotel division of Marriott that caters to the more discerning traveler. So chic!
As one of the world's premier backpack and outdoor gear brands, JanSport is all about cultivating self-expression and the spirit of adventure to the fullest. They're also big believers in the transformative power of art and music. Their Live Outside Campaign aims to combine these two passions into a hyper-local happening with a truly global reach.
For the 2016 iteration of Live Outide, JanSport ventured to one of the most culturally rich places on the planet: Rio de Janeiro. We're excited to provide the tunes for a series of promo videos recapping all the action. Check out the teaser video above (featuring "Dirty Work" by Welshly Arms) for a glimpse of what's to come!
We're super stoked to launch an opportunity today for our friends at Freeride Entertainment, one of the world's premier action sports/outdoor production companies (you may know them from such mind-blowing films as "Where The Trail Ends" and "On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter"). In addition to their film work, they also produce branded content for clients like Oakley, Specialized and Skullcandy, and they're looking to BForB for some dope jams. We are more than happy to help out. A big welcome to the Freeride crew!
