Birth Through Action. Everything and Nothing.

WHO ARE WE?

Art School Dropouts is an east coast based digital media group that creates original narrative-driven content.

With our skill sets on action filmmaking and comedic acting, we aim to entertain through martial arts and comedic action much like Jackie Chan or Charlie Chaplan; all the while incorporating fresh, new ideas from cultural trends of inspirations to modern day media, from comic books to anime.

The blend is a refreshing look at nostalgic action for new and old fans of the action genre.

 

OUR KAMON

"From the very start, I knew I was building something special. Something unique.
And after countless tears and laughter, I realized I was building a family; because it's not the blood that makes you family, but the loyalty.

So, after a year's worth of ideas, we finally settled upon our logo.
Our crest.
Our family's crest.

 

For those that know me, hopefully this symbol echoes with you all.
Our first mantra: Birth through Action.
In the middle is a lotus, a plant that blooms in mud, persevering through all odds.
But ideals means nothing without action; the four blades protect that concept.

Our second mantra: Everything and Nothing.
Greatness but humble.
A warrior in peacetime.
To be enlightened but earthly.

To us, our logo means everything. It's the symbol we carry on our backs and hearts every time we go out to fight for what we believe in.

Birth through Action.
Everything and Nothing."

- Joey Min, Director Senpai
