    Bully is a web series of live concerts by bands. Broadcast on openfilm, Bully is an interactive process where the bands play in a studio in front of television monitors that display live messages from viewers. The bands are smaller, lesser known acts. The messages appearing on the monitors are, at times, broadcast over footage of the band, so viewers can see the live reactions of the rest of the audience, creating a virtual concert that simulates the unified feeling of a live concert. The band often reacts to the messages, laughing at the funnier ones. Some of the bands that play longer sets include: House of Fools, Kingspade, The Maine, Panima and Steel Train. By allowing the audience to speak to the band without being drowned out by the music and roar of the crowd, the concerts create a high level of interaction between the audience and band that a live concert normally cannot attain.moreless

    Thirty Days NY is a unique art showcase, designed by Ben Jones, that was completed in the span of 30 days in New York City. The gallery was curated by a local bookstore, and with the help of the community, the challenge was to build, organize and then present the gallery from April 7 - May 7th, 2010. The short time frame meant some contemporary artists were allowed to take up residency in the Tribeca gallery space in order to complete their art projects on time. These experiences were documented on film as Thirty Days NY produced a web series showing the making of the gallery and interviews with the artists. Artistic freedom was represented in other ways as well as the series invited indie bands such as The Lucky Dragons to play in the gallery. Many reviewers positively regarded the Thirty Days NY project as a true celebration of the merger of arts and culture.moreless
