To celebrate the collaboration between the two brands WeSC and The Standard proudly present a series of short films created by a group of selected artists who are an active part of the Superlative Conspiracy and whose creativity represent WeSC and The Standard’s art, travel and music sensibility.

We present: Cheryl Dunn for the Standard New York with the film titled "NYC Dream Jam".

NYC Dream jam . . i wanted to work with NYC musicians and create a sound battle through the walls . a flirtiy challenge , a musical conversation.
I’m also very inspired by the Geoff McFetrich designed locking hands carpeting in all the hallways and wanted this to be a dominant element by using the mysterious dancing guy that cant quite get into the party and making it the runway for for the “secret weapon” characters for the battling jams.
The Standard is about a whole exciting experience, and a lot of that experience is attributed to the artists they collaborate with. Which is also true for WeSC. so most importantly I wanted to celebrate NYC musicians and allow them to have a jam while the sun rose over NYC . . maybe that’s a dream but it was real for one night .
