Jason does a lot of work with Hip Hop artists in Toronto, but always manages to convince them to make the trek out to Hamilton to use our facility here. Check out the Studio Rental page to find out how you can book Low Key Studio for your upcoming photo shoots, video shoots, or event!
On Friday we threw a party to celebrate Johnny Major‘s Debut Album “This is the Sound” going up on iTunes, and we also took the opportunity to premiere their new music video for Ghetto Fabulous. If you weren’t able to make it out on Friday, don’t worry! Ghetto Fabulous is now on YouTube! Watch below…
This was a Christoph Benfey‘s directorial debut and also features the talented and dynamic Anna Cyzon. Chris Wardle held things down as the camera operator and also edited the final cut. The entire video was shot in 1 day in Hamilton, Ontario.
Since the Photo Booth at WTFunk Happened to 2011?! was such a success, we decided to do it again! But we all ended up having the most fun in it after the party was over! Here are some pics, the rest will be up on our Facebook Page later tonight or tomorrow.
GG Cole did an amazing job of warming the crowd up before the video started andSanjay Patel made it out again to contribute his signature live art in between sets. This one turned out to be one of my favourites so far!
I hope everyone had a great time and we’re definitely looking forward to the next one! Thanks again to everyone that made an effort to come out for the party! Now go spread the word on this video!!
Everyone in Hamilton knows what happens on the second Friday of every month. Of course I’m talking about Art Crawl! What you didn’t know is that starting this month Low Key Studio will be launching the Art Crawl After Party.
To kick things off we’re pairing up this months Art Crawl After Party with some great friends of ours, Johnny Major. They just released their debut full-length album on iTunes and they decided to celebrate the occasion with us here at Low Key! This will also be the Official Premiere Screening for their Music Video for the song Ghetto Fabulous. They’ll be doing a live acoustic rendition of some of the songs on their album, and GG Cole will be doing an acoustic set as well.
There will be art on display and for sale in the gallery, as well as Live-Art by Sanjay Patel. Cash bar, so this will be 19+, but FREE TO GET IN!!! If you’re Art Crawling on Friday the 13th, definitely make an effort to stroll over and pop in for a look! Things get started when the Art Crawl starts to slow down. See you here!!
Of course one of the many uses for the studio is going to be film shoots (by the way, rental rates are now posted!). Since opening at the beginning of December we’ve already had the pleasure of having 2 music videos shot at Low Key Studio, and a third one is happening this Saturday.
The boys (along with the ridiculously talented and animated Anna Cyzon, who is featured on the track) from Johnny Major stopped by last weekend to shoot their video for Ghetto Fabulous [which I’m directing!]. With Chris Wardle as D.O.P. and Editor on this one, it’s sure to be an awesome first video for them! I just got some screen shots from some behind the scenes footage that was shot by Chris, so here they are!

The video will be dropping on January 6th 2012, and there will be a release party for the iTunes release of their new album “This is The Sound” and the music video release at Low Key Studios on the 6th as well. More details will be coming soon.
In other news, Katie and I were in studio shooting our Christmas cards the other night, and I was playing around with some long exposure stuff for fun when I got this photo…
