LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Mutiny Pictures (www.MutinyPictures.net), a Los Angeles-based film company specializing in online branded entertainment and webisode production, made several company announcements through founder Michael Pierce on recent high-profile projects that showcase their branding capabilities and post-production expertise. Mutiny Pictures director Kenny Stoff recently teamed up with U2 to document the launch of the band’s first album in five years. “3 Nights Live” featured a three day, whirlwind tour from Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston where the band mingled with fans and the media in a Q&A session hosted by Shirley Manson. The Boston stop culminated with an intimate, live performance featuring songs from U2’s new record “No Line On The Horizon.”
In addition to U2, Kenny Stoff was reunited with Interscope Records’ artist Eminem to create a 30 minute program of original content for the making of his new video. “We Made This” is the lead single from his latest LP, Relapse, and is currently appearing on MTV and M2. Stoff and Eminem previously collaborated on the MTV hit “Making the Ass” which featured the puppetry of Crank Yankers and performances by Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel.
“We know we can rely on Kenny Stoff and the Mutiny Pictures team for great creative with quick post production turnarounds,” remarked Michelle An of Interscope Records. “We trust them with our most prominent artists and they continue to impress.”
Stoff also directed the music video “New Classic” for Razor & Tie Records’ Selena Gomez and Drew Seeley. The track is from the soundtrack of Disney’s “Another Cinderella Story” and has, to date, attracted over 500,000 views on YouTube.
Company directors Stephen Brown and Erin Brown also teamed up to direct the music video for The Strange Familiar and their song “Courage Is.” The music of The Strange Familiar is currently being featured on the ABC show “Secret Life of An American Teenager.” The music video takes a subtle, heartfelt and credible approach to teen pregnancy and the adversity of life.
Added Pierce: “It’s exciting to work with such a wonderful group of artists and I’m extremely proud of the work Kenny Stoff, Erin Brown and Stephen Brown have created. I am looking forward to the second half of 2009 and continuing to push the limits of traditional and new media.”
