Smashbox: Face/Off ~ The Videos

RR Sideshow: Contributing WriterDaniel Rolnik

There were 26 finalists in the video portion of the Face Off competition at Smashbox Studios. And although all of their shorts, music videos, and animations were great, the judges still had to narrow it down to their top 3. Davis Factor [co-founder of Smashbox], Guy Oseary [Rock Paper Photo], Brian Bowen Smith [photographer], Rick Callahan, Steve Carr [director], Justin Tyler Close [The Lab Magazine], Dee Delara [Smashbox Studio], Greg Garry [Complex Magazine], Stephen Kamiguji [Genlux Magazine], Albert Kodagolian [Director], Rocky Morton [director], Mathias Vriens McGrath [photographer], Ettore Zuccarelli [EZ Productions], and Kimberly Brooks [painter] chose an eclectic ensemble of winners, which you can view below in addition to my favorite video, which unfortunately didn’t make the cut even though it has well over 125,000 hit on youtube – granted it does have the advantage of being a music video by the rad band LOW and features every girl’s celebrity crush John Stamos.

1st Place: “Tatiana Cotliar” by Boyce & Brown

2nd Place: “Feast of Fury” by Dugan O’Neil

3rd Place: “Kaleidescope” by Sue-Ling Braun


“Try To Sleep” music video directed by Travis Schneider [feat. John Stamos]
