UPDATE: Graham Carter told us that Woody Herman: Blue Flame has won a gold Hermes award. Congratulations to Graham Crater and Jazzed Media.

 

First off, Prajna Media Group would like to congratulate Graham Carter of Jazzed Media on an amazing documentary about one of the giants of the big band era- Woody Herman. Recently we sat down with two-time Grammy nominated record producer and award wining filmmaker Graham Carter and asked him about his experience working with Prajna Media Group.

Prajna Media Group: Why did you choose Prajna Media Group, Inc to be your creative postproduction partner?
Graham: I was impressed with the extensive resume of Gordon Eaton of Prajna Media Group, and his robust and varied portfolio of completed work. This comprehensive background, coupled with an unending commitment to completing the project in a timely manner, made the decision to work with Prajna an easy one.

Prajna Media Group: What was your vision for this project?
Graham: My goal was to show the long and successful career of one of America’s preeminent big band jazz leaders and his relative impact on the jazz world for over half a century. By combining newly filmed interviews of former Herman band members with an amazing collection of vintage still images, recordings, and both film and video footage of Woody and his band, the result was an intimate portrait of Woody and his drive to further the development of big band jazz and provide first class entertainment to his legions of fans.

Prajna Media Group: Graham, in what way has Prajna Media Group helped you the most?
Graham: I was really impressed with the very high level of “ownership” displayed by Gordon at Prajna Media Group as he edited by latest documentary film. Gordon was also very forthcoming in making helpful suggestions as we worked towards editing hundreds of still images and over 50 hours of video footage.

Prajna Media Group: In the future would you choose Prajna Media Group to be your creative partner again?
Graham: I would not hesitate in considering Prajna Media Group to work with me on upcoming projects.

Graham, it has been a great privilege working with you and we look forward to collaborating again on your next project.
