ALTER STREET is a video series that showcases some of todays most diverse
and intriguing artists. We posed to them the questions; Why do you create
art? Where does that drive come from and how did you get started? You will
get to peek behind the curtain and see the artists in their studios. There
you will witness their process and hear their thoughts behind their work.
Our goal it to help inspire people and artists of all kinds, young and old
and shine a bright light on artists we feel everyone should know about.
Every Month a new artist will be featured along with a small run Limited
Edition Print that is Exclusive to Alter Street. An Archival Print that is
signed and number by the artist and embossed with an Alter Street stamp
These stunning videos are produced, shot and edited by OSBX FILMS
and we hope you see them as pieces of art as well. If you enjoy the series
don't keep it to yourself, let us know about it and then spread the word
about the amazing artists on Alter Street to everyone you know. 'Like' us
and 'share' us on Facebook, tweet it to your followers and email the link
anyone that can use a little inspiration.
OSBX FILMS is the collaboration of J. DeVirgilis and Joseph Hasenauer. They
have been creating work for the big and small screen for over 10 years. Working
commercially for national brands like BHLDN, Powerade, RCA, Motorola and
Big Brothers Big Sisters. Their true passion, however, lies in independent
filmmaking, whether narrative or documentary we feel we bring a certain visual
esthetic to the shooting and editing. This comes for their sincere love of the craft
that is filmmaking. In 2013 J. and Joseph co-founded Alter Street,
a web based art series.
J. DeVIRGILIS is a producer, director, editor and one half of OSBX Creative Group.
J. started working in the art departments of music video and on commercial sets,
eventually making his way to the infomercial world where he learned to direct and
edit. After Joseph Hasenauer crashed his Christmas party, they began to collaborate
as osbx creative group in 2000. They have produced thousands of hours of film and
video for a diverse group of clients ranging from really cool ones with no budget to
halfway decent budgets for big corporations. J. lives and works in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania with his wife, Megan and dog, Taco.
JOSEPH HASENAUER started in illustration and his 20 year career has given him
the opportunity to work in print design, photography, painting and filmmaking.
No matter what medium he is working in, it is the storytelling that intrigues him
the most; exploring not only visual beauty, but, also the emotion aspect of every
piece. And, as with most artists, he is fueled by whiskey, rock 'n roll
and beautiful women.
