Video A-Go-Go: Wilding, Fighting, Models and Music

You may know writer/director Larry Benner’s work from his low-budget, locally filmed flicks Ether and The Nudger. His production company, Buried Pictures, is currently finishing production on his most recent film, Wilding, but they did manage to find time to whip up this “semi-official” trailer.

Thanks to choreography, cinematography and editing tricks, movie violence tends to be far more dramatic-looking than the real-world equivalent. Perhaps we need a little balance. Here, we have a video of Asheville MMA’s Robert “The Sherrif” Lee and Angelo “Bone Crusher” Gaffney sparring at Anytime Fitness of Asheville.

Have you always dreamed of being invited to one of those exclusive parties you always seem to see in movies and music videos? You know the kind, where everyone is a model, the vibe is high energy and everyone seems to be having a blast. While scoring an invite to one of those parties is entirely up to you, this week we can do the next best thing and show you a video from one. It’s from the private PUSH fashion party at Royal Peasantry.

Speaking of big dreams, it’s a rare performer who doesn’t at least occasionally fantasize about getting their big TV break. Asheville-based indie-pop band Uncle Mountain recently managed to snag a few moments of airtime on UNC-TV, performing their tune “Borderline” on NC Now.
