Transworld Cinematographer Project – NYC Premiere Info

We were all hoping for another Transworld premiere at Tribeca Grand, complete with an open bar sponsored by some random tequila company, serviced by half-naked girls. However, budgets (or phone calls to tequila companies with money to throw around) in the publishing world are not what they used to be, so it makes sense for them to hold off on that.

Going with the next best thing, there is nothing more *New York, bro* than a skate premiere at a bar. If you simply cannot wait to see R.B. Umali’s section with a Kevin Tierney ender, Jake Johnson and Gilbert Crockett’s “going pro” footage, Fat Bill’s montage containing the handsomest of the handsome, and whatever burnt-out concoction Beagle came up with for the new Cinematographer Project video, they will be showing it at Epstien’s (Stanton & Allen Street) from 5 to 8 P.M., and at The Fish (you know where that is) from 8 P.M. to 4 A.M. on Friday, March 30. 21+ or all ages with a fake ID / good sneak-in tactics / abundant facial hair. Showing up before 7 P.M., and leaving the neighborhood immediately after is highly recommended.

If you don’t need an excuse to drink with a bunch of assholes at some awful bar on a Friday, the video will be available on iTunes and DVD that day as well.

  1. With any luck, this will be the first Transworld video worth paying attention to, let alone owning, since… uh… Modus? In Bloom maybe?

  2. that was a flavorful part right there. back when hip hop was used in video parts without irony… and even more amazing – music like the track in this part was still being made at the time – and it was popular. Let’s not even start the clothing discussion. I must’ve missed out on that video Cinematographer, but some of the footage is familiar.
