The Joes directing duo of Joe Naylor and Joe Pellegrino promised me some professional headshots as part of my payment for producing the MOMHEART short film. We captured these photos in late July 2019 at various places in Asheville, North Carolina. I knew that I wanted highly detailed black and white textured photos in a controlled interior space, which occurred at the Grey Eagle venue in the immediate photos below. Afterwards, we walked throughout downtown to collect candid shots. I was very impressed with the Joes’ work, and always grateful for updated headshots, which are critical for the freelance creative arena.
Leading up to Saturday, June 15th, I coordinated a music video premiere and fundraising event on behalf of the band VIA. The show was hosted by the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC as a benefit show for Girls Rock Asheville, a non-profit organization that leads a music camp for women and gender minorities.
In addition to VIA headlining and premiering their short film “Firefly” starring actress Katie Cassenti with dance choreography by Olivia Joy Harris. Other musical acts included Kathryn O’Shea, Miss Jean and the Love Cats, Moonlight Street Folk, and Rooster. I also designed the poster embedded below. Overall, the event was a great success for both VIA and Girls Rock, and I was glad to support both groups.
