PDX Jazz Festival Work Samples
In February 2014, a cohort of University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication students participated in a weekend multimedia workshop in order to profile musicians performing at the Portland Jazz Festival, put on by the non-profit PDX Jazz. After dividing themselves into teams of three or four, each student-comprised team had three days to shoot and edit together a video profiling a band or artist performing at the event.
Guitarist Dan Balmer is the youngest person to be inducted into both The Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame. He currently plays with his collaborative group, Go By Train.
Video produced by Michael Buisan, Bryan Kalbrosky, Shelby Goldstein, and Rachel Baker. The video piece on Dan Balmer was published on The Register Guard (viewed here) as well.
