gravity sleeps

Gravity Sleeps is a creative collaboration and media production company. In addition to music videos and narrative film, Gravity Sleeps is well-versed in documentary, interactive, and commercial work. Our work has been featured on NPR, Pitchfork, Esquire, and has screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

Visual storytelling is the tool we use to engage with our world. It is the heir to the communal campfire which drew countless generations around its embracing, flickering glow; and we take that tradition a little too seriously.

Looking awesome, Beau!  Gimme!

Oh hey!  Just checked in with our friend Joan as Policewoman from the January shoot for her single “Holy City” directed by Alex de Campi to discover that her vid is at nearly 80,000 views!

That’s something!  Could you make it 80?  Check it out if you haven’t already!

Incredibly exciting new rough work from Eric Scott Pfeiffer on the Scrimshaw graphic novel written by Ian Green and Wesley Wingo!
I really haven’t seen whaling treated this way… ever.  So pumped for what comes next (spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well…)

Little late in saying so, but had a great time at SXSW this year seeing Harrison Atkins’ Chocolate Heart in a very bizarre screening block at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema!

New rendering in the works.  ”20,000 Beaugues Below the Sea.” -M. H. Mezzina

Hey hey!

Check out Joan as Policewoman’s new fresh to death video and single from director and comic writer Alex de Campi produced by Wesley/Gravity Sleeps for RSM!

The vid was filmed in NYC at Windmill Studios in Brooklyn with the incredible support of Carrie White, Michael Yetter, and the whole Factory team.

Super proud of the results.

UK’s The Telegraph had this to say in it’s exclusive launch of the video:

"The video, filmed in New York City and directed by Alex de Campi, comprises of a series of surreal TV tableaux with Joan dressed in each technicolour vignette.
The track’s closing scat-rap is by US comedian Reggie Watts, who Wasser describes as “an incredibly inspired musician as well as being a comedic genius.”

Congrats to Harrison Atkins on the acceptance and premiere of his short Chocolate Heart at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.

Wesley/Gravity Sleeps lent a hand on the film, serving as associate producer, one of the most notoriously hilarious and coveted credits one can garner for a film. 

We’re psyched to have played a part.  Be sure to check it out this March if you find yourself in the Austin area! View high resolution

YES! 
People get ready for antebellum whaling epics, the latest graphic project from Gravity Sleeps.  From our artist:
“Here’s one of the pages from Scrimshaw, a comic I was recently hired for written by Wesley Wingo and Ian Green. I’m super excited about this project. It’s a long book and at times I feel out of my league but I really enjoy the challenge and pushing my boundaries. The book will more than likely be published in black and white but I did a color study just in case we end up shopping around for a colorist.”
Needless to say we think he’s doing an a-ok job.  10 Page preview is nearly finished which means Kickstarter is coming… get those wallets out!
