Revel featured on Soundcheck Blog

My second video collaboration with Susan Marshall & Co. “Revel” premiered on WNYC’s Soundcheck Blog this week prefaced by the kind words of Digital Producer Michael Katzif – “Cusick’s rapid-fire smash cuts, intimate camerawork, and tight pacing allows us to follow the action and footwork up close and personal.”

Reviews for Welcome to Nowhere

Watch it Now Pick! “Have you ever wondered what would happen if Gregory Crewdson, Sam Shepard, and Cory McAbee took mescaline at a roadside motel and got freaky with a video camera?” – Michael Tully, Hammer to Nail

8 out of 10! “By boldly mashing live action with motion graphics animation, Cusick establishes a universe that falls somewhere between the hyper-real and the unreal.” – Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit

“Welcome To Nowhere (Bullet Hole Road) is a welcome addition to the realm of surrealist fantasy where each viewers subjective reality itself lends to the purposely subjective fractured narrative.” – Steve Rickinson, Indiewood/Hollywoodn’t

“A fever dream of a road movie!” – Rob Hubbard, 366 Weird Movies

“This used to be the stuff of cult classics.” – Kentucker Audley, No Budge

The film continues streaming for free on No Budge until Oct 18. The film has over 1000+ views in only 2 weeks, please give it a look before it’s gone.

Chance Magazine

Visit Kickstarter to reserve your copy of the inaugural issue of Chance Magazine. It’s an amazing new theater design journal created and edited by a group of International theater artists. The concept behind the journal is to present the work of designers in a clean, uncluttered format – much like fashion and art photography. This journal is long overdue and incredibly well executed. Pickup a copy and join us for the journey – I’ll be editing the articles featuring video artists working in theater and performance.

Interview with Donyale Werle

Theatermania’s David Gordon interviewed me and Donyale Werle regarding our designs for Bare: The Musical and you can read about it over on their website. I particularly like this quote he chose from our interview – “We speak and read in images now in a way that, fifty years ago, wasn’t necessary for theater. For a show like this, about images of self and identity, it is absolutely necessary.” Thanks for a great interview, David!

The New York Times has a feature on bare: the musical this weekend, which details some of the history behind the show and where it’s headed with the current revival. If you’re in NYC this winter/spring, go see the show at New World Stages. It’s a uniquely compelling musical, read more here at the NYTimes.
