Now more than ever is the time for your business to make clear what your values are. Silence is siding with the oppressor. Speak up, speak out, let us help.

At Jess Pfilms, we know it's our duty and privilege to speak out about the blatant racism going on in this country. As storytellers, we also know that part of dismantling systemic racism is acknowledging the systems that have been suppressing black voices and doing our part to step back and give them a chance to speak. Until the end of 2020, once a month Jess Pfilms is offering 50% off to a black owned business or a nonprofit centering black voices.

Black lives matter.

How to caption your videos on Facebook

Did you know that 85% of videos are watched on mute? Did you know that adding captions can boost view time by 12%?

Adding captions is easy, quick and automatic, and here's how to do it on facebook.

GETTING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA - it's one of the scariest things that anyone has to do. 75% of the population has public speaking phobia. You get in front of the camera and your voice suddenly sounds too high-pitched or too low-pitched, your hair just won't stay, and your hands feel like foreign objects.

As a filmmaker, who is used to being on set, and knows that the editing process can hide and remedy all mistakes, you would think I wouldn't be scared. But as soon as that red recording light turns on, it's a whole different ball game.

What has helped me more than anything are improv warmups. They get your voice and your body moving, and they take you out of your head. A few you can try:
1. 8 count shake out - count to eight while shaking your hands and feet. (https://bit.ly/3ad15hb)
2. Feel your feet - take a few deep breaths, as slowly as you can. While you do that, be conscious of feeling your feet on the floor, feel them grounding you.
3. Singing! This one can feel strange to do, but it can really help get yourself into a more relaxed, creative part of your brain.

What ways do you get yourself or your clients ready for the camera?

THE GAP by Ira Glass

I didn't make this gorgeous video illustrating Ira Glass's "The gap", but I rewatch this video almost every year when I need a creative pick me up.
Have you seen this video? What did you think?
https://vimeo.com/85040589

I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating…

Julia Emiliani at Zone 3

Loved working with Zone 3 on this, one of two more to come.

Boston illustrator, designer, & maker, Julia Emiliani, completed her first mural on the garage doors at Zone 3 this September. 'A Composition of Moments' is an exploration of the idea that the things we love are reflective in the things that surround us. This piece is to represent the memories and milestones that Julia has formed in Allston over the years, as the city changes.

Emiliani’s work is part of Walls on Western, mural-focused public art program intended to highlight Boston area artists with a connection to Allston/Brighton that is run by Zone 3. You can learn more about the program and artists at zone3westernave.com/wallsonwestern
