Project Luz

About the Project:

We are 20 students in Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico prepared to start our own community news project with daily broadcasts and online posts to our community (and you!) using various platforms. We already possess basic photojournalism skills thanks to Project Luz.

Over the course of 6 months, we will set up the platforms and begin news reporting, writing and publishing our stories to our worldwide audience. Our mentor, a San Francisco-based journalist, audio producer and sound artist, is ready to spend her time, energy and resources to turn us into youth journalists within our community.

Now, we just need your backing and you can watch it all unfold!

Students will be informed of project success at the completion of their summer audio/photo workshop.

Budget for 20 students / 6 months includes professional equipment for every student includes SLR cameras, field recorders, microphones, headphones, laptops with editing software. Additional expenses for web designer, printer, projector, cell phones, website, housing, food, transportation.

[Words in blue paint at the end read ‘Groupthink’.]


“They play it safe. Are quick to assassinate what they do not understand. They move in packs ingesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another. They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow. They are US! This is what we have become, afraid to respect the individual. A single person within a circumstance can move one to change, to love ourself, to EVOLVE.” -WindowSeat – ErykahBadu

Dwele sings Angel w/Suite for Ma Dukes 40 piece orchestra!

Feb 10th is the fourth anniversary of Dilla’s untimely passing. People are celebrating his life all month long. At Mochilla, we have spent the past year working on A Suite for Ma Dukes. Until now we have held our cards close to our chest releasing videos and entirely instrumental pieces. But today in homage to the man responsible for all this we are releasing, just to you, the first vocal performance from SFMD.

Dwele sang Angel that night without rehearsal. It is a classic. Miguel’s arrangement is super heavy and Bob Power made it magic.


Turn it up!

++willy wonka original psychedelic boat trip!

This was/is absolutely one of the most fascinating parts of the
Original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) mainly due to it’s rhythmic, poetic and psychedelic feel…


“There’s no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There’s no knowing where we’re rowing or which way the river’s flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing ’cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they’re certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!”

-Willy Wonka
