Summer is here, and I’m filming and editing from Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in the Berkshires! It’s opening week!!

Every year, we receive dance footage from companies around the world that are preparing to perform at the Festival. We create a promotional video to give audiences an overview of the fantastic dance performances coming to the main theaters at the Pillow. This year, we condensed the video and made our cuts more fast-paced to allow for a few more uses on social media.

Check out all of the beautiful dance in store for this summer!

The Pillow season overview video is used everywhere – on YouTube, in YouTube ads, on Facebook, Instagram, on the Jacob’s Pillow website, on the Pillow campus playing on loop in places like the Welcome Center… Videos can tell powerful stories across many different platforms. I love that.

I am going on festival 15 here as the Video Producer at Jacob’s Pillow. I run an outstanding video team here that consists of two interns (Zoe Walders and Liana Kleinman) and an apprentice (Amber Schmeising). I am so fortunate to do this with my Assistant Video Producer/long time colleague Benjamin Richards. Raising the next generation of dance videographers and editors is a thrill.

Plus, I love spending the season with my family in our cabin in the woods!

My work at the Pillow is so important to me, and one of my favorite times of the year. Christopher and I can’t wait to make dance photos and video with all of the 2016 artists. Come visit!
