Photobooth: Gawker's HUSH Silent Disco
We’ve done many jobs for Gawker. They love us. We love them. It’s a widely known fact. Here’s why: they throw interesting photo booth ideas at us and then trust us to kill it.
We did a zombie booth for Halloween. We incorporated a couch once (because why the hell not), and we shot in front of a sick piece of original art at the last Silent Disco (oh yeah, a “silent disco” is a party where the DJ spins through a network of headphones instead of a PA. Hence the “silent” part) and every time we’ve come up with some of our favorite images, our favorite vibes, and our most excited guests.
…Oh yeah, the folks who work at Gawker are pretty darn cool too.
This event was no different. It was another Silent Disco at the New York Public Library, and the idea was to actually incorporate the DJ in the photo booth (who would be spinning off a brand new HP Beats laptop). Guests jumped in the booth, pretended like they were scratching records while we light painted them, and afterwards they could get a little DJ tutorial if they wanted, courtesy of HP Beats!
It was an odd concept, but then again, so is MRI. So of course, we had a blast, and so did all the folks rocking headphones while they jumped in the booth. Check out a few highlights below, and the rest on the MRI Flickr.
