Russell Efros was a New York-based filmmaker and musician. He wrote, directed, produced, and edited short films and music videos. He also wrote, recorded, and performed music with his band, Plain Dog, as lead singer and guitarist.

We are fiercely pursuing Russell’s dreams, which have now become ours, to build a safe, warm, and nurturing community for creatives to express themselves, share their talents, create and collaborate with other artists, and gain access to the resources that they need to sprout and flourish.
