“After leaving Isaw I moved up north to teach at Brown Mackie College. Where I started to develop a relationship with another video artist in the UK named Burnie Kunize. Professtionally I have been working with Mr. Kunize on several video art projects that center around visual music, video art and video mixing. Of these projects, one of which is working on the relaunching of his short lived music video TV program called AcidTV on the UK’s SkyTV Networks. Along side of this major project I have started to publish DVDs of visual music and video mixes via my own visual music label called Kadian Visual Music. These DVD are sold online via the www.acidgfx.com web site.”

I have the first half of the video already completed and online for people to view, wit the other half coming in mid October.” — Shawn Vendryes
