Grasshoppers 2017 Commercial Video

A 2017 THRU Media Commission for PJCE

Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble asked THRU Media to produce a short documentary to promote their second-year program mentoring high school students as composers, called Grasshoppers.

Additionally, he wanted a complete 3-camera concert shoot plus editing for each song. This was a pretty big job that could have been vastly more expensive, but I did it on the shoestring and punched above my weight, as this is my only video commission.

Forrest Brennan and Joe Jatcko provided camera operation for the concert, capturing the content for much of the documentary as well. I completed the edit in my studio.
