John “JonOne” Perello grew up in Harlem where graffiti and tags were seen in everyday life. Now living in Paris, JonOne has transferred his work from the streets of New York to the “limitations” of a canvas (some extremely large) and he now fancies more brushstrokes than air sprays.
Here is a short portrait of JonOne as he prepares for his first solo exhibit in the U.S. You can see his art displayed at Fabien Castanier Gallery in Studio City, CA from November 3 – December 2, 2012 www.castaniergallery.com
For the past few weeks we had the privilege of communicating and filming Alejandro & Maria, a mime couple! They call their group Binbon! They’re wonderful, good-hearted people dedicating themselves to the world of acting. They focus on theater acting as well as pantomime. We filmed a short video capturing their story. We also had fun filming 4 of their skits, you can see one of them below. To learn more more about Binbon and hiring them visit their website: mimosbinbon.wordpress.com
We hope you enjoy watching their work as much as we had making it.

This year’s Help-Portrait event was a success! We photographed 54 families. The San Fernando community came out and supported the event with over 60 volunteers and 20 donors. Awesome!
Help-Portrait is a movement of photographers who are using their time, equipment and expertise to give back to the community this holiday season. On December 10, 2011 the community of San Fernando and Alas Media made it possible for these beautiful families to take home a family portrait to share this holiday season.

At Alas Media, we’re big on storytelling, planning and communication. When you hire Alas Media, you get more than just video people, you get a production company that’s as excited to tell your story as you are. Our specialties are marketing and fundraising videos, event coverage and internet and tv commercials. We’re here to listen and ready to share your story with the world!
