New Featurette on Tri-C Jazz Fest Cleveland and “A Great Day in Cleveland” edited by Adam Smalley.

We are pleased to present this featurette on Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland and the Great Day in Cleveland produced by Terri Pontremolli, directed and edited by Adam Smalley. This window into the Jazz community of Cleveland and the history of Jazz in the city was created in part by Tri-C Media Arts & Filmmaking student filmmakers who were privileged to film with some amazing Jazz luminaries at the historic and beautiful Palace Theatre (Cleveland, Ohio) during the Great Day in Cleveland.

Jonathan Wayne and his Tri-C photography students produced the group portrait of all the Cleveland Jazz artists who converged on the Palace Theatre for A Great Day in Cleveland.

Special thanks to Media Arts and Filmmaking at Tri-C (MARS/VCDV) Portfolio and Cinematography 1 students who came in to film A Great Day In Cleveland and to Cigdem Slankard our Associate Producer, to Director Miriam Bennett (Moving Studio Productions) who directed the Great Day in Cleveland segments along with Assistant Director Cory Michael Sheldon. Both Bennett and Sheldon are also Tri-C faculty members in Media Arts and Filmmaking. Tri-C Alum, Jose Infante crafted amazing individual photographic portraits of the artists, some of which we hope to unveil at Private Screening 2015 on May 1st!

“Kate Tucker: Here’s an interview and two performances with Kate Tucker from the band “Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden”. Seattle-born, Nashville-based Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden play lush, layered indie rock with sparkling melodies and shimmering soundscapes. On their new album, The Shape the Color The Feel, echoes of Cocteau Twins, Cardigans and early U2 can be heard in songs that explore the darker moods and brighter vistas of Metric, Spoon, Interpol and Phantogram. The high intensity single “Blue Hotel” is fast becoming a radio favorite, charting both CMJ and Triple A stations.”

In the interview Kate mentions our upcoming film, Dream Out Loud directed by Miriam Bennett (currently in production).

Good morning, today I am participating in the national ‪#‎blackdayofsilence‬ which begins at noon today in honor and remembrance for those who have been killed. I’m very thankful to be alive and to be surrounded both virtually and physically by people who are working to make a difference in the world through their words, actions, works, and artistic expression. Today we go silent and have a chance to regroup and meditate on what might work to end injustice in the future and ease suffering in the present. It’s not a solution; it’s a continuum of change which can ultimately bend toward justice. In small amounts, I believe we can bring one another strength and and a measure of peace everyday while being mindful of the reality of inequality, despair and cruelty that threaten the beauty of life on earth. I invite you to join me if you like.
