[Antisteez Desktop Calendar 2012] Darian Faroy | August

It was a hot morning in Miami when we met 27-year-old Darian Faroy, one of this month’s featured filmmakers, in Coral Gables for this photo shoot…but not even the humidity could put a damper on his indomitable spirit. In a suit, Darian was all smiles and despite the heat, nonplussed. I say this to you so that you get an idea of what a cool character this Miami filmmaker is, and also, so it paints a picture of what kind of concise, practiced care he puts into his films. To be a filmmaker... Read More →

[Antisteez Desktop Calendar 2012] Vanessa Castillo | August

Miami…a city that inspires art, debauchery, rice and beans and flights of fancy. It is also home to burgeoning filmmakers who want to tell the stories that live just beneath the surface of this thriving tropical metropolis. Young filmmakers like 23-year-old Vanessa Castillo. But Castillo wasn’t always a filmmaker. Her journey began six years ago as a photographer. “I started off my visual journeys six years ago as a photographer, a legit light drawer (that’s the Greek definition... Read More →

[Antisteez Special]: WYNWOOD vs. WAL-MART!

Few are the places that remain untouched by conglomerates.  In the current economy we live in, rare are the areas where private small businesses have been able to thrive.  Even more extraordinary, are the places where urban, independent art is proudly displayed on the walls, streets and signs of city streets. Wynwood is one of these sacred places that encompasses all three. A beautiful inner-city Wonderland where impressionism, animated and graffiti styles of art peacefully coexist. Stroll through... Read More →

[Antisteez Desktop Calendar 2012] Miami Beat Wave | MAY

    While musicians, singers and artists give their all on stage there are plenty of people putting in work on their behalf. Our May calendar serves as an ode to the producers, mix engineers, light and sound, booking agents and managers who are often the unsung heroes of the music business. Not to say our talent this month is unsung… far from it. They’ve made themselves known in Miami and then some. The pair known as Miami Beat Wave started off classmates and ended up making music... Read More →

[Antisteez Interview]: Documentary Film Maker Adelin Gasana

Cuban America is an expository piece on the sociopolitical reality of Miami-Dade County. In laymen’s terms? Basically the major influence loud and determined Cubans – such as my balsy, gangsta grandfolks and their descendants – have made on this beautiful city of ours. For two and a half years Adelin Gasana has independently written, directed, and produced the film. It essentially documents the 50-year-story of the of the Cuban-American immigrant community that literally took... Read More →

[Antisteez Desktop Calendar 2012]: Danny Ae | APRIL

Danny Ae, 27, is a staple at the Fetish Factory and one of my favorite subjects so far in our monthly calendar shoots. Clad in leather and latex, he handled the farm animals, heat and walking around barefoot and stepping in piles of animal, um, magic with grace and dignity just to get this shot. The Colombian native came to Miami 12 years ago and told us that he found himself when he happened upon the fetish scene. He started dancing, modeling, performing a few years ago and says he is helping... Read More →

[Antisteez Desktop Calendar 2012]: Val Vampyre | APRIL

Val, 27, made her start in the Goth/Industrial scene dancing at Miami’s “The Morgue”. She describes their world as the kind of place “you can be who ever you want to be.” Which made her a prime candidate for a company which gave birth to the fetish community in South Florida- Fetish Factory. For the Argentinian the second the lights go on and the whip comes out she’s right where she needs to be. Being one of Fetish Factory’s lead entertainers and organizers... Read More →

[Antisteez Desktop Calendar 2012]: DJ Desiree | MARCH

This is a man’s world. And we’re not gonna take it. At a time of the year when turntable spinsters flock to Miami from around the world to convene in the name of music, it’s fitting that we celebrate with a deejay from our hometown of Miami. Not just any deejay, but one who’s beautiful and talented. DJ Desiree can be found playing New Disco, Electronic Indie and even New Wave on any given night. Maybe you’ve seen her at her usual gig over at Kill You Idol or perhaps... Read More →
