Over the rainbow

时隔一年,同样的阴雨天后,彩虹如期而至。正埋头苦干的同事们纷纷雀跃地涌入天台,像孩子般拍照留念。正如上周错过的日全食般,纵使上海的天气再那么的阴晴不定,总会给我们带来惊喜。
Today a beautiful rainbow appeared in Shanghai after a heavy downpour. Our folks who were fervently busy working, rushed to the office’s roof to check out the rainbow. Most of us took photographs to commemorate this special moment just like children. Despite the constant bad weather that Shanghai has, just as we missed total eclipse [...]

《延边口技》退出墨尔本电影节展映 W+K Shanghai Withdraws YB BOX Documentary From The Melbourne International Film Festival

经过内部讨论,W+K上海决定《延边口技 YB Box》退出墨尔本电影节的展映及后续环节。导演刘峰在周一早晨休假回到公司后第一时间表达了坚决退出展映的意愿。
这次退出是W+K上海的全权决定,并已于早些时候将该决定告之墨尔本国际电影节组委会。
《YB Box延边口技》讲述的是我国吉林省延边朝鲜族自治州几个年轻人通过beatbox影响中国街头文化的一段旅程和难忘经历。它是第一部展示在中国出现的beatbox文化的原始力量和创造性的影片,反映Beatbox如何向美国和欧洲的艺术家学习以进化出自己的声音和灵魂。影片表现了一种融合中国、朝鲜以及西方街头文化的另类领域发展出的独特的文化形式,见证了Beatbox这种另类音乐形式在中国的传播和发展。
YBBOX影片中以桂晶为代表的年轻人,在中朝边境的家乡接触到这种全新的文化形式,经过自己的努力掌握beatbox技巧,成为中国beatbox文化的标志性人物。随后桂晶和他的朋友因为beatbox来到上海和北京、跟世界顶尖的beatbox高手Killa Kela同台演出和交流。这些喜欢beatbox的年轻人通过自己的努力获得了大众认可,他们真诚纯粹的追求着自己的梦想,这些年轻人的成功引起了更多beatbox爱好者的关注。桂晶们在追求梦想时走过的路线影响了更多的喜欢beatbox的年轻人。大量喜爱beatbox爱好者的存在使得延边地区成为中国beatbox圣地,并且以延边为中心辐射周围的亚文化艺术形式。
