Working on the Philadelphia Delivers: Amazon HQ2 Proposal last October was a fantastic and rewarding experience. The group of Philly-based leaders that came together both in front of and behind the camera speaks volumes about the level of excellence that is alive and well in the city of brotherly love.
We love working with our friends at OnePlus, and when they came to us with the task of producing 3 commercials for their new EIS video stabilization we were ecstatic! Wrestlers, Fire Breathers, and some crazy Elvis karaoke... now thats a formula for having fun at work. Check out the final videos, as well as some behind the scenes shots!
Come join us and the Dufala Brothers this Friday at the Philadelphia Museum of Art for DUDUFALALA!
From the PMA:
In-Gallery Artist Intervention
In the spirit of art history’s creative pranksters and the 100th anniversary of Duchamp’s infamous submission of a urinal to the 1917 armory exhibition, the Dufala brothers poke fun at the status enjoyed by collected art and artists by hiding contemporary objects, personal belongings and small sculpture in the museums galleries. A dada inspired scavenger hunt in and among the works of art throughout the museum, this intervention juxtaposes the pedestrian and the rare, intention and accident and comments on the public use of cultural space.
Recently LVLR Teamed up with The Penn State Alumni Association to follow and film a few of their 2016 award winners. Among that group was Mike Karns, a 2011 graduate and the 2016 recipient of the Kay and Ernie Salvino Volunteer of the Year Award. Mike serves as the president of the Alumni Association's School of Theatre Affiliate Program Group, and is passionate about connecting students with alumni and industry professionals in the theatre business. His company, Marathon Live Entertainment, is currently leading the social media campaign for the award winning musical, “Hamilton,” and we were lucky enough to tag along with him for a day on Broadway.
It's Halloween! So, the Leveler crew hit the streets of Philadelphia to ask our fellow Philadelphians what their fears are. Sharks, clowns, failure... some of their answers might surprise you, and some of them might make you laugh. Please enjoy Volume 2 of the Hellophiladelphia series, Fear.
This is the second year LVLR has documented one of the most chill, friendly, and talent-stocked block parties in Philadelphia. Magic Death Sounds: Block Party 2015 is a 3:00min visual round up of the bands, people, and good vibes that made the day a success.
Sound track: Hello Shark -"Christmas Eve"

We're happy to report that WXPN posted Leveler's Magic Death Sounds: Block Party video in conjunction with the announcement of this years lineup! The MDS crew works hard to bring a spotlight to the ever expanding Philly music scene, and the block party is a fun way to learn about new music in Philly.
Leveler gets a close look at the PAFA installation of "Truss", Traction Company's mammoth sculpture work. Video produced for display alongside the sculpture as part of Traction's exhibit.
Traction Company is a 12-person artist collective and studio in Philadelphia founded by, and entirely composed of, PAFA alumni, faculty and staff. Truss will be on view at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Fisher Brooks Gallery, along with various other sculptures from July 02, 2015 to October 11, 2015.
Summer is on the horizon and Leveler has been dreaming about the cool breezes on Moon Beach. We don't mind the 250°F sunshine because the gravity is oh so good. Mission Commander Justin Maina shows off for the camera and helps remind us what space exploration is all about. Having fun.

A few months ago the Leveler Media studio was infiltrated by the Garrison Carida division of the 501st Legion. The 501st is a global group of the most die-hard, do-gooding, Star Wars loving guys and girls you'll ever meet. It really tickled our Tauntaun to see that one of Leveler's photos was chose as the #501stPicOfTheDay !
Angela Monaco, owner of Concrete Polish and the Director of Ritual Ritual has been a great friend and client of Leveler Media since our humble beginning. Join us in wishing her and the rest of the amazing designers at Ritual Ritual a very happy 3 year anniversary.

Ben Lieberman is not only a super producer - he's also a super dad. So for this Father's Day, we wanted to share a video he recently presented at his son Owen's Career Day, and also wish all the other super dads out there a Happy Father's Day.
Over the weekend we set out with a RED Epic Dragon and some of the most beautiful lenses in the world to create Leveler's largest music video production to date. Take a peek at some behind the scenes photos from Friday's shoot in Philadelphia while you await the release of "Like a Fool”.
Leveler is excited to be producing the first music video from Yalls' newest album, United. A Philadelphia transplant, Yalls currently makes his home in Berkley, California, where he is putting out music at a prolific pace with a multitude of artists like his newest dreamcollabo with Squadda B.
