I had the pleasure of being the Producer on a Shabazz Palaces short film we shot this past year. It was an incredible experience working with such a talented group of people to create something for a band whose music means so much to me. Originally it screened as part of the FRYE Art Museum’s Moment Magnitude show but is now online for everyone to view.
