After years of planning, research, cataloging and editing, Im happy to say my new video project After School Special is now live.

WP_20140425_11_47_46_Pro

A sample based look at a century of drug culture across a huge spectrum of film and music. Aiming to educate, interest and amuse all who have and have not experimented with “party drugs”.

The concept is inspired by ABC’s After School Specials. A series of ‘made for TV’ films designed to educate teenagers on socially relevant and often controversial subjects, originally broadcast by The American Broadcast Company from 1972 – 1997.

Traffic Jams Part1

traffic jams logo

Traffic Jams Pt1 (the questionable pilot)

How do you kill time on a long car journey from Bristol to Norwich? Plug in a QFO turntable with Serato and cut up some songs and samples about cars.

Please note if you’re planning to do this kind of thing for more than 2 minutes you’ll need a decent power source as it turns out you can’t run multiple devices off one cigarette lighter socket without the the adaptor blowing up.

Part 2 will be recorded once i have a new power convertor. I have some songs in mind but am open to suggestions.

Song used in this episode: Gary Numan – Cars
