Bronze, Brass, Jazz

Role: VR Director

A surreal documentary journey of a place and time that lasted for roughly three years in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles in the 1940's when the Japanese were incarcerated during WWII. Its name was Bronzeville and among the many thousands of African-Americans who lived, worked, and owned businesses there, were places known as Breakfast Clubs; late night diners and bars that was home to a booming jazz scene...where a band's first set began at 1am and breakfast was served for those just getting off work in the early morning. In this 3-minute VR animation, a phantasm of Charlie Parker roams these same Bronzeville streets as he has before, replaying the same gig at Finale Club (230 1/2 East First Street) every night for all eternity, while history continues to repeat itself like a dream.
