At the age of seven, twin boys Kareem and Tyheem Barnes were playing hooky from school and break-dancing in the subway, earning fifty dollars a day.

Today, the brothers wow audiences as the Tic and Tac All-Stars, doing acrobatics, telling jokes, and luring huge crowds in New York's famous Washington Square Park.

The Art of Attraction takes a look into the lives and minds of these two men, who have made a living doing exactly what they have always loved: performing.

The Art of Attraction is a product of the MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop, where participants work alongside MediaStorm staff to create an intimate, character-driven documentary in just one week. Learn more about upcoming MediaStorm workshops and online training at mediastorm.com/train.
