LOOT(Remix)

A few months back while browsing through No Film School’s site, I saw a post regarding a Short Film by Ayz Waraich and Martin Wisniewski called LOOT. They released the film with the intentions of having other filmmakers remix the film and put their own spin on it. They hoped others would take their work- chop and screw it up- creating brand new works of visual art. The original film was made with a $500 budget and an experienced crew but this no budget flick was intended as a way to give back to the film community. They had fun shooting the film and in turn wanted other filmmakers to have fun remixing it. This is just WiseMind Film’s interpretation of that short film, Hope you enjoy. I have included a link to the original post from NoFilmSchool which lead me here so you can read up and actually watch the original version! Original Post Here

Short Film Pick of the Day! Breath by Toby Meakins

A short film, to me, does it’s job by leaving you hungry for just a little more. Due to the nature of a short film (any film 40 min or less), we dont get a full back story to our characters and often times we as viewers as dropped in a specific moment in the characters life. We get to see things unfold just as the characters do, essentially we get a slice of their life. That is exactly what a short film is, a slice of Life. We don’t always need those elaborate back stories to get into the film, or to understand the characters.

“Earning your first penny on tsu” New video by WiseMind Films

What is all the hype with tsu? Well, tsu is a fresh new social media platform that pays you to post original quality content. It’s just like Facebook, IG, and twitter except the goal is to get users to engage one another and share great content. You are not going to get rich overnight with tsu, but honestly a few bucks to post awesome content is worth the time. According to tsu they differ from everyone else in the sense that they share the advertisement revenue with all its users. So the more people like your post, share it, and comment on it means the more eyes are on your page, which in turn means a bigger slice of the pie. Once a user has $100 in their tsu bank they can redeem the money, and tsu will send you a check. Yes it is real, some users have posted videos and pictures of their checks.  Since it’s launch in October we have seen some users really soar and gain thousands of followers by simply sharing great content and not overwhelming their audience with spammy BS! For the average tsu user, who only has a few hundred friends and followers the road to $100 is a long one, if you find your niche on tsu and gain momentum then you will get to those hundreds alot faster. Since earning money on tsu can be so difficult, the moment when you see your first $0.01 in that account is an amazing moment. To think we spent all these years creating memes and trendy hash-tags for free on these other sites!

Here is a brand new comedy sketch commemorating that moment you earn your first penny on tsu! Brought to you by WiseMind Films!

“518 Hope” (Official Video) G.Bags FT. Shave Bird

The First visual off G.Bags 3rd installment of the YFFR series, we bring you 518 Hope. Directed, Shot, and Edited by WiseMind Films, we see G.Bags and Shave Bird spit over Faboulous’  “The Hope” off the Soul Tape 3 mixtape. In this track G.Bags sticks to what he know which is #HardBars and NY Love. It’s no secret that G.Bags reps NY all day and he provided us with some memorable lines such as “I’m from the era of the clue tapes, had to keep my boots laced/kill a nigga with an old gun, catch a new case” obviously paying homage to D.J Clue’s mixtape series back in the 90’s. Everybody had a dub of a clue tape, it was essential to have back in those days if you were a real Hip-Hop head. Another quotable off the track is “we from New York, why ya’ll acting like chicago niggas?” This line stood out the most because if you look around we have tons of new artist and even some established ones from NY, that if you didnt know any better you would think came from Chief Keef’s neck of the woods. Now while there is nothing wrong with embracing a different sound, and style but ultimately you must be true to your roots. G.Bags also has a knack for finding a way to include current events into his rhymes in a matter that doesn’t seem forced, he raps “These dudes a cold rats, these are known facts/ Thats why I don’t fuck with you niggas, like the clippers owner” This being a play off the whole Donald Sterling debacle that occurred recently. Not only was Donald Sterling used for inspiration, Jay-Z’s now infamous run in with sister-in law Solange was also used as fuel, “Internet thugs, online they hella gangsta/ see me in and wont do nothing, they Beyonce in the elevator”. Shave Bird comes in on the second half of the song and does not disappoint. His flow is smooth and compliments G.Bags more aggressive demeanor. Bird spits, “Chain Husky and the wrist game looking stupid/Yellow cannery diamonds, but the bezel looking blueish”, Bird captivates the listener with colorful imagery but still manages to feed the streets ears with “Man I love that money so the coke talk is fluent/like 6 grams on an ounce make a fiend stupid”. Overall The track does not disappoint unless you looking for catchy hooks, and nursery rhymes. Go and get your copy of YFFR3 now here only $5 and well worth it!
