Click to sign up for updates and application information (when it's available) for the JJA Jazz Video project.  Non-members will be eligible to apply.
This project, funded by a Jazz.NEXT grant from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, through the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, will support hands-on training in basic video skills and explore new ways of using video in jazz journalism. We'll be sending out program applications soon. The program focus is on low-cost but high quality video production that can be done-on-deadline.  Accepted applicants will be equipped with  pocket video cameras and trained in basic production and editing techniques, in journalistic skills such as how to conduct good on-camera interviews, and in professional issues such as how to protect musicians' rights while disseminating video reports featuring them as widely as possible. Training will also be open to JJA members who provide their own equipment.  We'll sponsor online discussions about innovative ways to use and distribute jazz video, inviting publishers and presenters as well as musicians and educators into these discussions of how video can be better used to develop new audiences for jazz (and in doing so, provide new work opportunities for jazz journalists.
