DCP 163: Filmmaker Ron Dawson Creator of the Experimental Documentary - ImprovJam



Filmmaker Ron Dawson talks about creating his experimental documentary ImprovJam: A Musical Convergence of Jazz, Rock & Rap.

ImprovJam captures the improvisational jam sessions of three of Seattle's finest jazz musicians, a rock guitarist, and a freestyle rapper.

ImprovJam was filmed on location in the music room of Garfield High, a school with a rich musical history, boasting one of the finest jazz teams in the nation, and alma mater to such musical legends as Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, and contemporary rap artist Macklemore.

What happens when Ron and his crew takes nine video cameras including two Canon C100's, two T3i's, two 70D's, and four Panasonic GH4's - and records the convergence of jazz, rock, and rap is nothing short of magical.

Coach Kris Simmons returns in the Video Business Success Coach to answer a listener question: When should you to outsource?

Thank you for supporting and listening to the DCP!
