We are pleased to present this featurette on Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland and the Great Day in Cleveland produced by Terri Pontremolli, directed and edited by Adam Smalley. This window into the Jazz community of Cleveland and the history of Jazz in the city was created in part by Tri-C Media Arts & Filmmaking student filmmakers who were privileged to film with some amazing Jazz luminaries at the historic and beautiful Palace Theatre (Cleveland, Ohio) during the Great Day in Cleveland.
Jonathan Wayne and his Tri-C photography students produced the group portrait of all the Cleveland Jazz artists who converged on the Palace Theatre for A Great Day in Cleveland.
Special thanks to Media Arts and Filmmaking at Tri-C (MARS/VCDV) Portfolio and Cinematography 1 students who came in to film A Great Day In Cleveland and to Cigdem Slankard our Associate Producer, to Director Miriam Bennett (Moving Studio Productions) who directed the Great Day in Cleveland segments along with Assistant Director Cory Michael Sheldon. Both Bennett and Sheldon are also Tri-C faculty members in Media Arts and Filmmaking.
