Marked for Death – Recap

Our return to Songbyrd after our month long CAN I KICK IT? series at Freedom Plaza, had some minor hurdles (arrive early for seating), but was a good time.  We’re now downstairs, for the next few months, and Songbyrd’s performance space is a great fit allowing for people to chill out and enjoy the movie.

Thanks to everyone who attended, Sonbyrd for hosting, props to Efua’s Baby (pop-up shop), and salute to everyone who helped spread the word.

And if you missed this month be sure to check us out next month Aug. 22nd for Shaolin vs Ninja.

MAKE NO!SE x Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi x Native Shoes – Photo Shoot

When I first started MAKE NO!SE there were a number of individuals that I knew I wanted to highlight and Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi was one of them.  I first met Kat (via a mutual friend) at a house warming party for a friend of ours about 6-8 years ago and it was during that first conversation (while Kat explained what she did and would like to do) all that I could think of was “DRIVEN.”  She’s one of those people that has a genuinely positive aura and energy about themselves, armed with fresh ideas and a self-motivating drive to make them happen and happen correctly.

Her company, Lil SoSo Productions, produces some of the most eclectic and concept driven events (ed. note – she’s NOT a promoter), in addition to managing an array of colorful artists and DJs, the DC area (and the east coast for that matter) has to offer.  Through the years I’ve worked with Kat on a variety of projects and its always amazing to run with individuals who can bring their visions to life.

Check out the photo shoot and corresponding video which highlight Kat through her home office and events she developed and executed for Smirnoff’s “Master of the Mix” DJ reality show.  Photography by Rosina Photography, video by Opiyo Okeyo, product support by Native Shoes.   Click the link below to see the full shoot:
