It's tough to squeeze three days of incredible performances, delicious food, and dancing festival-goers into a two minute video. I hope this will bring back as many good memories of this past weekend for you as it does for me.


Filming the Elkhart Festival was a real treat. Coming off of a photography internship here at The Truth, filming and producing a video to sum up a three-day festival in a few minutes was unlike anything I was used to doing. Our current photo intern Julia Moss put it best: video is just a long picture. I kept that in mind while walking up and down Main Street throughout the weekend and looked for pictures the same way I would have had I been shooting with a still camera. The only differences were having to be mindful of the audio recorder attached to the top of my camera and trying to keep my hands as steady as I could for as long as I could - not usually a big issue when shooting still photos!
