More awesomeness from EOK. We used the shared space down in Sequoyah Hills to shoot a video for StreetJelly.com. The video is not ready yet, it's in "post-production." I don't really know what that means, but it sounds good. We'll use the video for a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the streaming music site. …Continue
