Nora Lutz and the Pond Jam – Premiering “Stories From Boston’s Emerald Necklace”

Over the hump!  Premiering Part Four of the Six Part Series.

This was the first video I completed for “The Stories Project”.  It’s also one of my favorites because of its’ unique style – in essence, I like to call it my own little rock-doc.  Nora Lutz’s story – The Pond Jam – invites us to take a look at how art, music, family, and community come together and are brought together everyday by the parks.  Enjoy Nora performing a beautiful rendition of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel.”

The Stories Project: A new venture into video-documenting a historic Boston park system.

Scroll down to see two of the ‘Stories’ videos I am publishing!

This summer, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, a nonprofit oversight organization of Boston’s historic Emerald Necklace system of parks, launched the beginning of a brand new venture  – the Stories Project.  The Stories Project is meant to video document the broad variety of stories that come from the 1,000,000+ people that visit the park system every year.   The Emerald Necklace is a 1000+ acre linear park system outlining the city of Boston that includes six parks in total, each with a different character and motif.  It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and completed in 1891.  The Stories Project is groundbreaking for the Emerald Necklace; it marks the start of creating a historical database of experiences formed at these historic parks and promotes and encourages use of the parks through a series of creative and compelling high definition videos.  These videos are being posted online and eventually will appear at the Conservancy’s new visitor center, opening in the fall.
