eyeJAZZ Challenge: Make your own jazz video tonight

Dec 2nd, 2010 | By
eyeJAZZ, the video project of the Jazz Journalists Association, has just issued its first eyeJAZZ Challenge, urging both novice and experienced video makers to shoot brief –one minute or less- video clips  that fit Challenge guidelines and submit them to eyeJAZZ .

The clips should give an outside view of places –from concert halls and clubs to church halls and gyms– where jazz is heard in the video makers’ own community, and the people who go there to listen. “Where do you hear jazz?” asks JJA President Howard Mandel, ” Let’s see what those places look like, and hear from those who listen.”

Details of the “assignment” for eyeJAZZ Challenge One and information about how to submit finished clips can be found on the eyeJAZZ training site.

eyeJAZZ Challenges are designed to be quick and easy to complete; they aim to encourage jazz video makers, especially beginning video makers, to take the plunge  and try  using cell phones, pocket cameras and other highly portable equipment to make very simple jazz video clips and share them with the project.   Submitted clips may later be  used as part of a collage that demonstrates the variety of venues where jazz is heard and the wide-ranging interests of the jazz audience.
