The hope behind ArtShots is that the clips would highlight artists, arts organizations, and teachers who have touched people’s lives in their community. This entry from Margaret Ma fulfilled on that hope completely. It profiles dance instructor Gayle Greenbrook. Here’s a peek.

The ArtShots competition was conceived to bring audiences a glimpse of the talent that lives within the community’s vibrant art scene. The bonus showed up when the stories told through the ArtShots clips also brought forth the inspiring stories of artists who would not quit.
Tony Smith delivered this clip about an artist who is made for one thing, and that’s what she does. Dalia Rawson brings dance alive. Take a look.
The hope held by the creators of ArtShots was that filmmakers would find inspiration in their arts partners, and that audiences would be inspired by the collaboration between filmmaker and performer.
We have a feeling that audiences will discover that hope having been met by this clip created by Teresa Widdowson and singer/songwriter duo Bev Barnett and Greg Newlon.

Audience voting for the ArtShots clips is open until Tues, Apr 3. The results of that voting, and the awards selected by the jurists will be announced during the South First Fridays art walk on Apr 6. Be there if you are able.
When ArtShots was first conceived, Zero1 was exactly the sort of arts organization it was designed to highlight.
This network for art and technology serves Silicon Valley, and in a way the entire world through its programs.
This 90-second ArtShots clip from area educator and broadcast professional Cynthia Green highlights Zero1 and gives a glimpse of the work that it does.
The concept of ArtShots was born from a desire to interconnect the indie filmmaking community with the richness of the Silicon Valley arts community. The competition pairs one participant from each community and challenges them to make a 90 second micro-documentary that captures the essence of the artist or arts organization.
The finalists from the 2012 event are available online and you can visit the official Audience Choice Award page to vote for your favorite.
Here’s one that was created by award-winning area filmmaker Ryan Wood.
