Despite its small size and relatively low population, Vermont boasts a vibrant and diverse music scene. This panel discussion will focus on the filmmakers who chronicle Vermont musicians. Music docs are flourishing in Vermont lately. What inspires these filmmakers to devote so much of their time to these for-the-love-of-it projects? How do these films find audiences, both in the Green Mountains and outside Vermont?
Panelists will include filmmakers Mark Covino and Jeff Howlett (A Band Called Death), Matt Day (Shape of Things to Come), and Alison Segar (James Harvey: A Master at Play), as well as Joe Egan (Egan Media Productions), who has been involved in many Vermont-based music documentary projects over the years. VCAM Director of Media Services, Bill Simmon, will moderate the panel.
Sunday October 21 – 4:00 P.M.

Matt Day, filmmaker, Shape of Things to Come

In September 2012 a gathering of fascinating, curious people seeking to foster grassroots innovation in every community, descended on Shelburne Farms, Vermont in the form of the Champlain Maker Faire. Inspired by their dedication to community, creativity and technology, VCAM set out to discover what the Maker Faire was all about.
Instead of a boring old greeting card this year, send a HOLIDAY HELLO VIDEO GREETING to all your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues. Whether you make merry with Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Festivus, New Years, or any other seasonal celebration, we have you covered. VCAM will take care of the technology; all you have to do is show up with your family, your friends, your pet, your props, etc, with something to say! Choose from several festive backgrounds and music selections. We’ll hit record and get your video online. You can share it from there.
Come on down to the VCAM studio (208 Flynn Ave #2G) on Thursday, December 6 from 5-8 pm to make your holiday video greeting at our HOLIDAY HELLO KICK-OFF PARTY. This event is free and open to the public. You don’t have to be a VCAM member to participate (because we’ll sign you up on the spot!). We’ll also have refreshments and a greeting card craft station for your little ones. If you can’t make that date, don’t worry. There will be a second session at the VCAM studio on Tuesday, December 11 from noon until 5pm. Can’t make it to VCAM during the studio times? We’ll be hitting Church Street and engaging holiday shoppers on Saturday, December 8. We’ll be stationed near Yankee Candle and probably strolling, too. VCAM users may reserve the studio at anytime to record their greeting.
