Like pretty much every music festival in the world after March this year, HONK! Fest was cancelled due to the social shutdown following the COVID-19 fiasco. But this did not prevent the organizers of HONK! from bringing together brass bands from all around the world for a week-long online festival.
I helped produce and curate content from the New Orleans HONK! Fest community including The Young Fellaz Brass Band, the Red Flame Hunters and Original Big 7 Social Club, and New Creations Brass Band. I shot and edited mini-documentaries and performances with the Red Flame Hunters, Big 7, and Young Fellaz Brass Band, and hosted a live panel discussion on New Orleans Culture with members of the New Orleans brass band community.
