Moon Tunes – Andy Frasco on the Wakarusa Ferris Wheel

We shot this on-location at Wakarusa… The audio was a challenge – We had wireless lavalier mics on the 3 band members – the sax player was in 1 pod with Evan – he had headphones on so he could hear the other guys. Evan was manning the audio recording rig and getting extra footage with his iPhone. The other 2 dudes were in the pod with me, 2 mounted goPro’s, and a Canon t2i handheld.

We’ve been inspired by the Take Away Show series and have been trying to bring a little bit of that guerilla flavor to these Moon Tune videos for Phases of the Moon Festival. Still learning, but this was a fun experiment. Good times.

Phases of the Moon Video Premiere: One Small Step for Jam

Announcing the release of Phases of the Moon Music & Art Festival‘s inaugural lineup film.. “One Small Step for Jam…”! BIG thanks to our friends Aaron Weiss (of One Story Productions) and Slate Systems, who collaborated with AIRSHP on this stop-motion film. We like to think of it as a nod to the Apollo 11 moon landing mission, a tribute to the spirit of exploration in all forms of art, and our own little Lunar Landing Conspiracy!

Phases of the Moon Festival

Phases of the Moon Fest
One of our newest projects is Phases of the Moon Music + Art Festival – its a new 4 day camping event held at a beautiful 3000 acre park in Central Illinois. Four days of feel good music from the likes of Widespread Panic, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Soulive, and Martin Sexton. AIRSHP is heading up the branding, web, and marketing efforts – doing our best to craft a fresh take on the age-old ‘summer camping & music festival’ model – and its been a blast so far! Its the kind of work we love to do – utilizing our collective experiences as designers, musicians, and of course – music fans.

Check out the Phases of the Moon Festival website and follow the fest on facebook.

Evan Bozarth wins Austin Poster Artist of the Year Award

We had fun at the 2014 AMP Awards! Thanks to Austin Music People (AMP)  for recognizing Evan Bozarth with the Poster Artist of the Year award.  His winning poster for the ‘Dance Party to Beat Dystonia’ was chosen by the venerable Kerry Awn.
You can check out more of @eboz’s poster work here.

Boz Bros Duel on TypeFight!

TypeFight Duel - The Bozarth Twins

We recently had the honor of being selected to submit designs for TYPEFIGHT! – a sort of celebrity deathmatch for design geeks.  We were both asked to design a number 4 in honor of independence day – our designs were then pitted against each other in the octagon of public opinion.. The voting was neck and neck – but ultimately, it was my ‘4 Dollar Bill’ design that took the title over Evan’s ‘Stars N Stripes’ entry..  I must come clean and admit that I did get plenty of photoshop help from Evan with my design, so suppose I owe him a beer (or ten) and a bag of frozen peas (for his bruised ego).  Special thanks goes to Drew Roper for being the ‘Don King’ of this story.

Note:
this voicemail->blog post was made possible by the fine folks at If This Then That..  its a sweet service that allows you to integrate tons of different web services by creating a simple recipe of events -> for instance, we have a recipe that says, “If there is a new post on the @airshp twitter feed, then post the same message to the airshp facebook fan page“.. pretty cool eh? the possibilities are endless.. and its just one of the many tools that we use to establish brands across the social web.

jQuery Plugin: Feed to JSON


I have been loving YQL ever since I figured out how to use it to scrape webpages and return the data as JSON – allowing you to turn any standard web-page into a simple API ..opening up endless possibilities for data mash-ups.. IMO, its the best thing Yahoo has ever produced!  

I wrote a little jQuery plugin that uses YQL to convert an RSS feed into a handy JSON object – this tiny extension makes its easy to work on rss feed mashups and widgets.. just check out this instagram tag search or this gimmebar user feed that i made in a matter of minutes..

Greetings from the AIRSHP

We hope this message finds you well, the following is a primer for the uninitiated…

We’ve been around.
Although AIRSHP is new, as a 2-man team, we’ve been around the block a few times. We have a 12-plus year background doing quality design and development for the entertainment industry. We’ve spent most of our careers working for other firms and we’ve learned a ton along the way, but the day has finally come to set out on our own – to forge a company that is built from the ground up around us – our collective skills – our creative ideas – we’ve got something to say!

Who does what?
Dustin handles most of the development work and Evan handles the graphic design.. we share duties when it comes to creative and strategic services..

What kind of projects would you like to take on?
We prefer to take on projects that utilize our broad skill set – web design, logo, branding, internet marketing, social media strategy, user interface design, email newsletters, etc.. allowing the end result to communicate our clients’ message consistently and effectively across all mediums. Ya Dig? If so, we are actively seeking new projects to sink our teeth into.. holla.
