Morrismore Production House: From Conception to Reception
2012 brought Morrismore back to the heart of its inception goal, opening Premier Networking Vancouver, and hosting successful networking nights for the entertainment and creative industry. The networking nights featured local performers, models, deigners, makeup artists, photographers, and studio owners.
2012 also saw the birth of another Morrismore dream, GrindDown Magazine www.grinddown.com. Morrismore was also involved in breakout work with the team from Vancouver Alternative Fashion Week (www.valt.ca), sponsoring, organizing model casting, makeup teams, and MC-ing the show.
For 2013, Morrismore is focused on promotion, casting, photography, art direction, artist development, networking and exploration of new media.
We're honing our skill set, with a new focus, a renewed passion and a new drive for the future.
Morrismore's founding vision, a simple dream of bringing talented people together to express, create and give back has taken many forms over the past years. The vision of the Lissen 5 series began in 2005 with cutting edge fashion, eclectic art and live local music shows held all over the city. Combining live performance with avant-garde design and beautiful visuals, the Lissen series brought something entirely new to the Vancouver scene. “Project Everywhichway”, “The Second Coming”, “All Hallows”, and “Whisper to a Scream” set the tone for the emerging vision of Morrismore.
With the completion of the Lissen 5 series in October 2007, Morrismore branched out to host weekly live music performances at local clubs featuring up and coming, hugely talented, local, and undiscovered talent. With those shows under our belt, Morrismore was poised to break into something new…a new vision, a new direction, and a new flavour for the coming years.
Inspired by the art of Megz Majewski (www.deadkittie.com) Doll Parts: Porcelain Treasures of a Grim Collector gave Morrismore the opportunity to take step two in their business expansion plan to create Morrismore Models, Western Canada's first and only alternative modeling agency in 2010. Focusing on the promotion of Morrismore Models in 2011, Morrismore cast models in countless fashion shows, photoshoots, music videos, and promotional appearances around Vancouver.
