There’s a Little Movie Theater Inside My Head: the Electric Rain Cape Experience
We love a good collaboration. We rely on nearby garment workers, talented neighbors and lively neighborhoods. Langan and Tarazi hit our sweet spot. These two LA-based lads have New England roots and the creative sap that’s delivered some sweet fruits.
Langan is a RI School of Design grad with the little movie theater inside his head. “When an idea comes about, it usually starts in the form of words (say, "a man dancing with a car"). I then feed those words to the movie theater, and my brain plays back a completed film,” Langan told The Atlantic. His films are very clever: "I just do what my head tells me," he admits. Experimenting with light is just one of his specialities.
Najeeb Tarazi studied physics at Harvard. He’s been a technical director at Pixar Animation Studios. Perhaps you’ve seen Toy Story 3? That’s one of his collaborations. His first short documentary, Josey Builds a Bakery! is a really nice story about a small business guy, warm bread and a community he collaborated with. He travels the world and delivers a universality with his work .
We get by with a little help from our friends. We're very happy with what Langan, Tarazi and their team have created. They've nicely captured the vibe we were looking for. Hope you have a free minute to watch. Empty your mind and let us know what you think.
