Working under the B+R Productions banner to develop The Verizon Power House, a 15,000 square-foot experience of personal, interactive technology for SuperBowl XLVIII in New York City’s Bryant Park. The Verizon Power House showcased Verizon products and network capabilities through a series of fun experiences and media displays. Including an interactive Media Tower allowed football enthusiasts to create a personalized timeline featuring iconic moments in technology, pop culture and NFL history. A gesture game wall let visitors explore the solutions of the Verizon’s Powerful Answers campaign, and a 270-degree projection mapping room, transported fans from their homes to their cars and finally to a football stadium.
We are pretty proud to be a sponsor of performance installation HOLOSCENES, a visceral, visual and public collision of the human body and water. A new works by Lars Jan; director; writer, artist, and founding artistic director of EARLY MORNING OPERA. HOLOSCENES features a large aquarium like sculpture viewable from 360 degrees and inhabited by a single performer carrying out everyday human behaviour. HOLOSCENES weaves the unraveling story of water — the rising seas, melting glaciers, intensifying floods and droughts — into the patterns of the everyday. The ebb and flow of water and resulting transformation of human behaviour offers a portrait of our species’ collective myopia, persistence and, for better or worse, adaptation.

A civil-right activist and political consultant, Ruth Woo never went to college and has held no job title more significant than "administrative assistant." But has worked behind the scenes of the Washington State political arena for over the past 40 years tirelessly working to give voice to people of color, by making sure they have a influential place at the table of power. The Ruth Woo Project is documenting this effort.
This marks the fourth year running as a proud sponsor of the Asian CineVision 36th annual Asian American International Film Festival in New York. A two week event venued at Asia Society, East Village Cinema and MoCA. As always it brought together a very impressive selection of features and short films from across the globe. It reminded me that a good film doesn't always need the crutch of massive budgets, superstar talents and world-ending special effects to tell a good story and reach us in touching and impactful ways. I recommend all to support and put on your cultural calendar each year. (asiancinevision.org)
Chun Ching Hock settled in Seattle in 1860, just eight years after the city was founded. A few shacks, a lumber mill and a lot of mud made up the emerald city at the time and as a pioneer in a time when America resisted foreigners, Ching Hock build an global Empire and made a mark on the city that still stands today. The CCH Project is an on-going effort to document his experience and contributions and establish his place American history where it belongs. On September 23, 2014 Teresa Woo introduced the project at the HistoryLink.org luncheon in Seattle. The audience made up of the Seattle historian and archivist community brought the project to a new level of achieving our goal of making CCH an intrinsic part of the cities history.
I think Kickstarter is a wonderful and powerful tool that allows us to support independent creativity in a meaningful way. I’ve know the talented composer, musician Dave Hart for over 10 years and have experienced Emma sprout from a seedling into a talented violinist through her proud father. With bluegrass/Americana talent Jim VanCleve of the band Mountain Heart producing their first Album “Hold On” with Bryan Sutton (guitar), Byron House (bass), Kenny Malone (drums), Jeff Taylor (keys), Aaron Ramsey (mandolin/banjo/dobro), Josh Shilling (B3 organ)… how can you not create a winner. WooCreative is proud to support their efforts. (emmahartmusic.com)
We sadly lost singer/songwriter Babi Floyd this year. One of the most moving moments of my life was remembering him as a musician, friends and father with his son Tommie on Alki Point in Seattle this August. Babi was a force of heart and energy that will be missed, but always remembered. (youtube)
