Since 2014, Richmond City Media has been making waves in the Staten Island film community. The film collective has been busy covering local events, organizing film festivals, and working on several narrative projects. Today they released a teaser trailer for their latest short film called “The Nothing.”

Staten Island’s art community is bustling all year round, but something about the summer brings out the creativity in all of us. This year, there are several art exhibits worth checking out. Whether you’re into photography, film, paintings, or even performance art, these events will definitely catch your eye. Area

The annual South Shore Artists Group Fence Show is a yearly event meant to showcase local artists and artisans and will take place at Conference House Park off Hylan blvd.

The event takes place at the Richmond Savings Foundation Tuscan Garden and showcases a full listing of honorees who have contributed to the local arts.

To celebrate the annual celebration of Fleet Week 2017 and all of our military sailors out there, Flagship Brewery and the Fleet Week NY Activities Committee are going to be hosting the Fleet Week NY Music Festival on May 28th from noon to 8pm.

Last year, students at New Dorp High School got together and had the novel idea to bring a piece of comic book culture to SI by having their very own local Comic Con.

This weekend is your last chance to check out an exhibition and sale of the works of Synthia St. James, Charles Bibbs, & More. at Staten Island’s Creative Incubator HUB 17. The event is a collaboration between Nafissah Art Collectibles and media producer Frances Wilson Noellez. The exhibition has been running since April 29th, and will continue until Sunday May 7th.

An icon of New York City, the Staten Island Ferry was one of the first subjects to be recorded in High Definition. Back in 1993, while introducing the technology, JVC filmed various scenes in New York City for a promotional video.

Richmond City Media recently released its sizzle reel for March on YouTube. Watch the video above for a behind-the-scenes look at the daily operations behind and in front of the cameras.

Corinne Caputo, author, comedian and Staten Island native, recently published her first book, “How to Success!”

Every once and awhile I get lucky and find a book that truly speaks to me and “How to Success!” is one. I felt like I was having a conversation with a fellow writer, commiserating about the trials and tribulations of our chosen profession over a glass of wine, rather than reading a stuffy how-to manual.
