Young and Hungry Students make the news…literally
Two students from Young and Hungry, Copywriter Lauren MacNeil and Art Director Priscila Moreno, were recently featured on SFGATE for their documentary about San Francisco Buskers -aka street/subway performers. Their piece focuses on John Bridenbeck, a classically trained violinist who makes his living playing the likes of Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi in the San Francisco subway system–AKA the BART. The short documentary is a pilot episode for “Bartist” a branded content series for the upcoming NO BOX TV network, being developed at Young and Hungry.
After developing the “Bartist” concept, MacNeil and Moreno sought out artists and were happy to find Bridenbeck, who was a very willing subject. After finishing the piece the team sent it to him and he posted it and essentially “Reddit blew up” says MacNeil. From there, SF Gate picked up on it and developed the article featured in the link below. Way to go Y+H ladies!
