Where can you hear some of the best tunes in Victoria for ten days straight? Victoria’s JazzFest, of course! Stretching from the last week of June into July, everyone can catch the Victoria Jazz Society’s lineup of jazz, blues and world music from local, Canadian, and internationally acclaimed musicians.

Every year, jazz societies from across the country get together to showcase their festivals to one another, and Victoria Jazz Society approached Roll.Focus. in search of new content featuring their annual performances.

As big lovers of jazz ourselves, we were enthusiastic about taking this project on and getting the opportunities to see so many talented musicians at work. It was vital to capture the energy of these events as well as the wide variety of genres when it comes to jazz, so that is why a wrap-up feature of the event was the video style chosen. We’ve also never had a video that involved so many locations - eight shoot days across six different venues! But it was well worth the effort, and we’re very happy with the end result that celebrates all the talent our city has to offer.
