Some of my favorite videos I’ve made for VMFA are the ones we’ve done for kids. Here are a few highlights, plus the VMFA Kids playlist on Youtube:
It’s always a pleasure to make videos with the passionate people at Sabot at Stony Point school:
Happy 100th birthday to this fashionista, my grandmother-in-law, Beatrice Sweeney. Bea was born on June 17, 1915–the same year Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra were born. Woodrow Wilson was president and WWI was just beginning.
A few weeks ago I visited my twin nieces in Boston. We were trapped inside during the snow storm, so I got a lot of footage! This is a sequel to the video I made when they were 1-month old:
Here is another fun video I produced for Sabot at Stony Point school:
I know that my friends, the Whorleys, look like models assembled to act like a family for a magazine shoot. But they are real. They really do look and love this beautifully.
It’s been a real honor and pleasure documenting the classrooms and the community at Sabot. I’ve been reminded how each person comes to the learning in his or her own way, how everyone has distinct talents and strengths, and how much we can accomplish if we work together. From this, I feel especially inspired to explore and experiment with new ways of filming and editing and to collaborate more with other people.
Thank you, Sabot, for embracing me into your community!
Fall is a reminder of the joy of color, the joy of falling down, the joy even of getting hurt and getting back up on our feet ready to try again.
