This was a challenging summer no doubt. With COVID restrictions, rain-outs, fast deadlines, new gear, 4K, and more rain, we do this because we love dance, we love video, we love collaboration, we love artists, and we LOVE Jacob’s Pillow.
Every year, on September 11, Buglisi Dance Theatre offers audiences a chance to reflect and remember 9/11 with a special outdoor performance at Lincoln Center in New York City.

We just wrapped an incredible summer at Vail Dance Festival!!! Throughout the two weeks the Festival ran, we filmed nine shows with four cameras…

A few weeks ago, Ballet Hispánico came to Jacob’s Pillow to celebrate their belated 50th Anniversary. It was a belated celebration — they were supposed to perform at the Pillow in 2020, when the Festival was canceled — and it was definitely worth the wait!!
I really feel like the whole past year and a half prepared me for this dance video project. If we were planning this film shoot before the pandemic, I would’ve been like, “OMG. How could we possibly get all of that accomplished in such a short period of time!?”
Mentoring and encouraging my team to embrace new roles and challenges has really been the work I’ve been doing most during the past year and a half, as we help artists connect with audiences through the pandemic.
