I'm Brian King. I live in Los Angeles, and I produce video content for television, rock and roll bands, and my own amusement.
This is the first act of the piece I shot in Oakland with a guy called GATS. It’s one of the best things that I’ve made so far this year.
Graffiti is a thriving life force in Oakland. Meet GATS (Graffiti Against The System), an artist for whom the city is one endless canvas to connect with the people. Times are rough in “The O,” as GATS plans to write a poem throughout the city.
Following GATS around was incredibly intense, and getting a month long guided tour through the shitstorm known as Oakland was something I’ll never forget. Have a look.
