California is a Place

Ever curious about the small stories around California that you never hear about? This Golden State is filled with more than just sunny weather, movie stars, and Disneyland. Did you know that the employees of Silicone Valley have a fight club? Or how about the scrapper bike community in Oakland?

So what is ‘California is a Place’?

In a nutshell : very short & beautifully shot documentaries about the little stories of California that many people may be unaware of.

California is loaded. From Disneyland to farmland, we’ve got Scientology and superstars, Silicon and silicone, crips and bloods. The border. Krumpin’ Clownin’ Jerkin’. The surf and the turf. The boom and the bust. California is humanity run amuck and then packaged, branded and sold. California Cuisine, California Love, California Casual, California Gold, California Girls, and of course, California Dreams. If it exists in the world, it exists here and it does so with pizzaz.

Obviously, we love this stuff. That’s why we’re doing this project. Simply put, California is sensational. And the closer we look the better it gets: words and images, stories and songs, opinions and ideas. This project is ongoing. We hope you like what you see and say so. We plan to post often. So until that day, when we finally float off into the Pacific, California is a place. Stay tuned.
