BWP Press, Hollywood CA -- The most critically reviewed indie-produced Hip-Hop Documentary Series in America is "Celebrating!" the simultaneous release of Four (4) Brand New Hip-Hop Documentaries GV8-GV11.  Recipient of The National Educational Media "Gold Apple," Telly, Indie Fest, Platinum EMPixx Awards and multiple CINE Golden Eagles , the producers of the GV Series are proud to have been Awarded over 176 Prestigious Award and Festival Honors since 1995.  Touted as the thinking person's educational Documentary guide to undaground Hip-Hop, the GV DOcu-Series is Executive Produced and Directed by indie-filmmaker Bob Bryan.  Mr Bryan has earned special recognition and respect amongst his industry peers and educators as a pioneer in revealing the raw integrity and intellectual thought-process behind Undaground Hip-Hop practitioners.

 

"There is so much more to Hip-Hop than the stereotypical "Gangsta-ism, Bling-Bling focus" and the insulting overt fetish-like glamorization of "Big Booties"  which unfortunately as an media image (in many consumers minds) has become emblematic of what commercial Hip-Hop is all about," says Bob Bryan

 

If the truth be told, besides it being a real sub-culture, which consists at least 5 specific elements (Beat-Boxing, Hip-Hop Dance, The Emcee, The DJ, Graffiti Art). Hip-Hop is a huge communication paradigm that enables and encourages a free-flowing multi-intelligence model, allowing artists with various talents to express themselves freely, in a socially constructive & dynamically positive way. 

 

"Gives an amazing view of the appreciation of Hip-Hop culture."

   --- Angie "Hip-hop Angel" Griffin, Temple of Hip-Hop,
Universal Zulu Nation

GV8 The Fifth Element: The Art of the Beat-Boxer is both documentary and tutorial.  Learn the basic techniques to developing your Beat-Boxing skills….  Press Release  
 

"I don't know about you, but from where I sit  the machinations of what a DJ actually does behind the "wheels" are downright fascinating. Consider the superior manual dexterity that is required to manipulate faders, switchers, equalizers, turntables (usually 2) all seemingly near simultaneous in their execution, in order to create a beat!  Imagine?...   Press Release  

It's all here!... GV10 HIP-HOP DANCE is an engaging documentary (from multi award-winning filmmaker Bob Bryan) that personalizes the Hip-Hop dance experience for those artists who "live it" to those of us who "receive it".  This specific and complex text, this living, dynamic kinesthetic language is borne out of their life experiences, the love of the game… Press Release

 


GV11 Voices From Da Hip-Hop Undaground (Part 1) documentary is an in-depth exploration of the process, thoughts,  raison 'etre, creative expressions and  paths taken by some of the most prolific, innovative and outrageous undaground Emcees, Filmmakers, Animators, Rappers, Urban Artists (working in various mediums) and outrageous and brilliant thinkers of our time…   Press Release

 

Abandoned buildings and desolate blank alley walls of our inner cities are routinely “fired-up” and transformed from disturbing neglected urban blight into artistically rendered urban murals and masterpieces or so-called “pieces.” Oftentimes, this ”rebel-art” reports to us what has happened overnight in our urban communities, almost like a daily newspaper. The subject matters various from political statements, lost love, futuristic ideation, identity reinforcement, transcendent existential philosophical reflections or simply a tragic yet beautiful RIP “portrait piece” dedicated to a fallen mate or family member killed in a drive-by shooting or crippled by a sudden fatal illness. Whatever the case, the mission of these creative artists are radically different and unlike the omnipresent internet blogs spitting out its daily dose of outrageous entertainment nonsense and/or silly personal neurotic obsessions. These artists are seriously dealing with Reality!
 

 

"I kept being reminded of the works of Keith Haring and Salvador Dali. 

I guess in some ways all Art begins as Rebellion!

The M.B.C. would be honored to add the program Graffiti Verite'   to our extensive collection

of Award-Winning Documentaries."

"If you regard Graffiti as defacement of property - something that Gentrification should erase
