Life After Fat takes the tired narrative of “weight loss = #flawless new life” and flips it on its head. Losing 100 lbs is a major journey, but what happens after the after?
In this scripted series, Maddie and her friends explore NYC living, their early 20s, and the complicated aftermath of significant physical change, quickly realizing there really is no one-size-fits-all for a secure self-image.
Galaxy Man Production's Reel for 2017
Funny People Making Food is an unscripted digital series hosted by chef, actor, and comedian Erica Wides. In each episode Erica invites herself into a comedian's kitchen, where they cook together and discuss the finer points of food, comedy, and whether using white pepper means you’re racist (yes, sorry).
Episodes are shot in the guest’s actual kitchen, where they cook something the guest has selected. It could be a nostalgic childhood food or an updated version of their go-to recipe. As they cook, we learn about a popular personality through a unique and intimate lens, and may even pick up a few cooking tips.
There will be laughs, there might be tears, and there will definitely be good food.
Filmed over the course of one month in our hometown of Columbus, Ohio, Breaking the Grade is a documentary that follows a group of students who were given a second chance. Although the system was ready to give up on them, a determined educator willing to try a bold new program wasn’t.
What followed was proof past events don't need to define the future.
Fix Our Transit came to us with the goal of garnering more support for Congestion Pricing among local legislators who use small business as an argument against Congestion Pricing.
In order to combat claims that small businesses do not support Congestion Pricing, we created five videos profiling a variety of business owners in Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn to demonstrate the support congestion pricing has among small business owners.
5A-5B is a comedic series that follows best friends, Kev and Jan, day-by-day over the course of one ridiculous, yet typical week in Harlem.
Kev is a gay geologist, seriously single, and with serious student debt. Jan, who lives across the hall, is an artist and divorced mother of three, also quickly running out of cash. Together, they survive the bizarre happenstances of New York City living with a lot of help from each other and a few bottles of wine from the corner bodega.
Galaxy Man Productions produces, edits, and co-directs this series.
Galaxy Man has produced content for a wide range of DoubleTree Time Square Hilton needs, from social media content showcasing the hotel's wide array of little luxuries to videos highlighting major events held on location at the hotel.
The Brooklyn Queens Connector (BQX) came to us with the goal of generating awareness and support for the BQX, a streetcar that would connect areas of the city that are currently under-served by existing transit.
In order to do so, we have provided on-going work for them creating short form videos that highlight key events and supporters of the project.
Korda Institute for Teaching came to us with a goal of showcasing how their method can be used successfully in a wide range of educational environments to dramatically improve teaching and learning.
With this in mind, we produce pieces for them on an on-going basis that profile teachers, administrators, students, and community members who have been involved with KIFT’s groundbreaking educational methods in order to spark change in a variety of very different schools.
Inspired by mouth-watering chicken and a groundbreaking social mission, we produced a piece for Hot Chicken Takeover, a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio that provides supportive jobs to those who need a fair chance at work.
We sought to capture not only the food, but also the amazing staff and environment that makes Hot Chicken Takeover such a special place.
East Harlem has had many names over the years: Spanish Harlem, El Barrio, Manhattan's First Little Italy. And it's a bit of all of these things - a neighborhood that remains fiercely unique and committed to its roots.
Yet most people know very little, if anything, about this area that Galaxy Man and so many great characters call home.
In this series, we hope to showcase some of the unique personalities and cultural staples that make us, like so many around us, love this little slice of NYC.
Episode 1, featuring Uptown Roasters, is currently in post-production
The Friends of the BQX approached us with a goal of increasing support for the Brooklyn-Queens Connector, a new system they hope to build to connect under-served areas in BK and Queens.
To accomplish this, we wanted to authentically show the wide variety of people who would be positively impacted by the BQX. We created multiple videos using a grassroots approach that showed people explaining, in their own words, how this new transit option would improve their commutes and communities.
Filmed on location in fabulous Chester’s apartment, Chester Lately is a star-studded and action-packed talk show starring dashing host Chester (Sam Korda), Joshua, who lives in the closet and is desperate for fame (also played by Sam Korda), special guests, such as the King of the Oceans himself, Poseidon (also Sam Korda), and a wide array of musical guests (not Sam Korda, usually).
Chester is a Galaxy Man Original that represents our unique take on the Late Night format. If The Eric Andre Show had a raucous one-night stand with Let’s Talk About Something More Interesting, the result would still have a higher budget.
**Chester Lately is made possible thanks to Baxter's Ice, where you go for all your icy needs
FlyFit NYC was a local boutique gym serving East Harlem. Their goal was to increase membership.
To help FlyFit with this goal, we wanted to showcase the spirited (and often pleasantly sassy) personalities that make up FlyFit, along with the gym's unique atmosphere that not only challenges but also creates a sense of community among its members.
