Featured Artist Thread // Vaughn Elkourie

Vaughn Elkourie just moved back to Atlanta after graduating from Georgia College in Milledgeville, GA where he finished his degree in Digital Media and Business Management. When he is not working on projects for his internship at Dyme Squad Media, LLC he enjoys video editing, digital media, as well as analog art mediums such as drawing and painting.

When asked about his inspiration on his most recent video release, he told us that he actually stumbled upon the idea on accident. He was finishing up moving in and fired up his record player with Tears for Fears on vinyl. After flipping on the preamp he went on to the next thing until he realized that he had the settings pitched down, but instead of changing it back his mind reverted back to footage he had. With the Adobe Suite, Vaughn’s editing abilities and a few hours of work; this slow summertime video ballad was born:
