About this project

Thank you for checking out the Portland Sessions Kickstarter campaign! 

We started the Portland Sessions in September of 2011 with the desire to capture and document intimate musical performances and provide high quality digital content at no cost to the viewer.  With artists, videographers and audio engineers donating their time and resources we have been fortunate enough to produce 15 sessions and counting, including sessions with:  

  • Joe Henry & Lisa Hannigan
  • Al James of Dolorean
  • Benjamin Francis Leftwich
  • Churches
  • Lindi Ortega
  • An Horse
  • Robert Ellis
  • Elliot Brood
  • Barna Howard
  • Josh and Mer
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Over the Rhine
  • Rubik
  • Nahko
  • Revolver

As we have continued to expand on this initial concept, so have our financial and equipment needs.

HERE'S OUR GOAL:

Our goal is to produce at least 6 more episodes of the Portland sessions through the end of 2012.  Our goal is to raise a minimum of $2,500 in order to expand the vision of the Portland Sessions.  These funds will enable us to secure and expand on the types of locations we shoot in, as well as purchase/rent additional microphones and other audio/video equipment in order to accommodate larger musical ensembles.  Anything above and beyond our initial set goal will go directly into furthering the scope of this project.


WHERE YOU COME IN:

We have spent a lot of time to ensure that your generous donation is matched with a reward we feel expresses our gratitude.  Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated, even if it's just spreading the word about the Portland Sessions and this Kickstarter campaign through twitter, facebook and word of mouth.

ABOUT THE PORTLAND SESSIONS:

The Portland Sessions is an on-going series of audio/visual productions documenting local, national and international bands
recording in unique spaces throughout Portland, Oregon.

For each session we choose bands and musicians that excite us and match them with spaces that are integral to Portland's visual and cultural landscape, with the goal of capturing the unplanned and unanticipated effect a space has on a performance.
