The private opening of STUDIO 8558 located in the Arts District of Culver City, CA and exhibition featuring the artworks of diverse celebrated artists - John Paul Fauves and Chad Muska.
We’ve all watched that movie that spoke to us personally. Maybe it made you laugh, cry or it totally scared the shit of you. No matter how it made you feel, it did what great films do best, it made you feel something powerful. Shane Valdez started REALM FILMS to not just tell a story but make damn sure that story makes you feel something. Enter Jake Maymudes, a seasoned VFX artist, who moved in to join forces and Jake didn’t come alone. He came armed with the most talented VFX artists from around the globe.
Together they create masterpieces.
As artists in their respective fields it made sense to surround themselves with traditional art and in doing so get inspired. The two decided to add an art gallery to the office, STUDIO 8558. Now open, STUDIO 8558 is participating and giving back to the already rich artistic community of Culver City.
Pablo Picasso said it best, “Everything you can imagine is real.” The dream Shane and Jake shared has come true and is alive and well at 8558 Washington Blvd.
