A Year in the Pit: A Journey into Music Photography is a one-hour documentary about still photographers commonly found front stage in the pit at music festivals. Shooting “in the pit” requires intense, split-second decisions to capture the ultimate on-stage moment. The symbiotic relationship between image-maker and musician provides the backdrop for a great story. The film explores the artistry and images of some of America’s finest music photographers. The film was shot at Virginia-based festivals including FloydFest, Rooster Walk, Galax, Hoopla, LOCKN’, The Festy, The National, and others. Additional footage was acquired at French Quarter Fest, The Hamilton (D.C.), The Regency Ballroom (S.F.), Terrapin West (S.F.) and other venues. Additional footage was recorded in Lost Angeles, San Francisco, and Lake Tahoe.
