About The Work:

Galinsky's QUALITY OF LIFE: The Giuliani Years - Featuring the last
film performance of Quentin Crisp's career, "Quality of Life: The
Giuliani Years", stands as an imposing and absurd commentary on the
administration's staggering authority and triviality. The film is
fueled by a diverse array of music featuring ION Records recording
artists Buckethead, Cobra Strike, Bill Laswell, and DJ Spooky,
Galinsky and award winning director of photography Thomas Moore
utilize natural light, wide angles, and security cameras to make this
21 minute film a gritty, humorous and visceral docu-style dark comedy.
The film marks Galinsky's film directorial debut and consists of a
series of guerilla style short scenes illustrating a variation of
"QOL" arrests with a cast of assorted perps and cops. The setting is a
grim back hallway of One Police Plaza where the accused are escorted
to their court appearance and grilled along the way.

Galinsky's THE END IS WHERE WE START FROM - Features a roof top
reading by Willem DaFoe with sound design by Thomas T-Bo Linder. Shot
on 8 millimeter film with no matching sound, it's an abstract urban
window into a sliver of T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets.

Galinsky's GET OUTTA YOUR HOUSE - a poetry video with sound design by
Muata, studio musician for The The, The Talking Heads and Yellow Man.
Featuring the frenetic kenetically paced video stylings of NYC artist
Peter Shapiro.

Penabaz's VAMPIRE GEISHA TO GO: Music Video- Created for the one-off
club party, The Vampire Geisha Ball, Halloween 2005. Starring Nicole
& L. Gabrielle Penabaz Shot by Gilberto Silvany
Directed/Edited by LGP A nod to the "Geisha To Go" escort ads from
80's NYC late night cable TV
. Plus - a wink to the "Memoirs of Geisha"
film promotion that suffered from having Chinese actresses, as Nicole
and Gabrielle are far from being Asian and it is also rumored that
they are not really vampires.

Penabaz's HEARTBLACK AMNESIAC: Music Video Created for the initial
promo tour of the album Elixir by ST. EVE. St. Eve is Gabrielle's
electro-rock music act that has toured in many configurations, this
one included Bec Stupak of Honeygun Labs on guitar and graphic design.
