Nicabob is a bored teen living in nowhere Southeast Louisiana. Prolonged use of ADHD meds has made him a social outcast even seemingly among his own family members. To amuse himself, he starts a Youtube channel. Although he follows instructions from Youtube and models his videos after successful Youtubers, his channel only attracts haters. When the bullying becomes unbearable, Nicabob shuts down his channel. The difference between real time and online time becomes almost unbearable for Nicabob. Frustrated, he begins to chop through the wall of 8 foot weeds in his back yard. When he breaks through to the other side, he discovers a chance at real human interaction.
This is an Elektrik Hybrid: a story that was once real and then became fictionalized. A teen who was once real plays a fictionalized version of himself. What is the line between documentary and fiction?
Local Urban Ecologist Dr. Josh Lewis tells the hundred year story of the Industrial Canal Lock system that dissects the infamous 9th Ward in New Orleans. He outs the industrial capitalists who used public funds to build the system and describes how irresponsible urban planning to suit industry rather than ecology has lead to repeated catastrophic flooding in the region since 1927. This history cum Call to Action is aimed at mobilizing our city and our country around the intersection of industry, ecology, climate change and politics.

a fictional place Down the Road
Our award-winning film “Destiny lives Down the Road” attracted the curators at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans who commissioned us to produce “Chalmatia: a fictional place Down the Road,” which was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts & the LA Division of the Arts. The installation included over 400 photographs, 86 text pieces, an hour long film, and an installation component.
Commercials and Content
Our philosophy has always been: work with people we like; work for brands we can get behind. Life is too short to do anything else. Why only make commercials and content with people we like and for brands that we can stand behind? It takes a lot of love to do what we do. Love makes the content better. And we love our clients and their brands.

Destiny lives Down the Road
Living in a small town sucks for seventeen year old Destiny, especially after the 3rd environmental disaster in her lifetime. Deadbeat dad, mom drunk every night, her fantasy is to dance her way out of this hell hole and bring her sisters too. When she joins a dance school after a five year hiatus, she realizes that the difference between fantasy and reality is vast. It’s time to grow up. ‘Destiny lives Down the Road’ blends fiction and creative non-fiction into a coming of age story set in the real post-disaster landscape of Chalmette, Louisiana. The film follows the fictional Destiny as she interacts with all non-actors playing themselves in real situations.
