Last week I was interviewed by Leah and Jay of Vancouver video house, Giant Ant Media. We got to talking about some of their upcoming projects, the largest will include a trip to Tanzania.

This will be a part of Urban Project, which is “a non-profit society dedicated to promoting employment, education and safer living opportunities for disadvantaged youth in urban locations throughout the world.” [Urban Project].

Their specific goal will be to work on Bongo, a film and 12 part web series about hip hop culture on the streets of Dar es Salaam.

In order to raise funds for this venture, Giant Ant held a kick off fundraiser, and you can “Be a Producer” by donating to the project on their site.

The next fundraising event for the project will take place September 10th at the Anza Club, where James Lamb will be playing, along with Miami Device and Brie Neilson.

    Oh yes, a blast it will be. But only if you like to have a good time. Because a good time will be had. So you better like a good time.
