Helping neighbors in need of homes

Ever wonder how Upper Valley Habitat for Humanity builds a house? It can take a year and up to 200 volunteers. "We couldn't do this work without our supporters," says executive director Eva Loomis. "It's humbling how many people give their talents so selflessly." Little known fact: You don't need to swing a hammer to help on site.

Produced by volunteer producer Laura Savidge, with support from JAM producer Rick Russell.

Telling Vermont's stories on film

Is Vermont a muse for filmmakers? Middlebury filmmaker Jay Craven, historian Rick Winston, and JAM's own Executive Director and filmmaker Samantha Davidson Green shared their thoughts on this question and more at a Bookstock panel in Woodstock June 25, 2023 moderated by Daybreak's Rob Gurwitt.

Riverfolk returns!

"Up above my head, there's music in the air. I really do believe there's a joy somewhere!" So went the first song at last week's Riverfolk 2023. Local folk, blues, and jazz artists ruled at the Courtyard Theater. "We've been dreaming up how to make our little hometown a mecca of music," said host Jakob Breitbach. Hear Riverfolk sing the dream to life!

Recording supported by JAM producers Mike Cannon, Rayce Gilbert, Jordyn Fitch, and Drew Boyce.

JAM Music Video Camp ROCKED it

with Tuck's Rock Dojo!

Their mission: In just five days, write an original song, record it in the studio, then write, shoot, edit and mix a pro-level music video. They chose to accept it... The young musicians and film crew got started at Tuck's Rock Dojo studio in Etna, NH. Claire heard lyrics. Jacob heard a melodic guitar riff. Cedar saw smoke in water. Chloe imagined herself running in a field from a bird's eye view, Kelty saw the living dead... They storyboarded and shot in a church, with chickens, in the Main Street Museum, in an abandoned tavern... By Friday, with support from Tuck and Kata Stocking and JAM staff, the exuberant JAM Campers screened their bang-up final cut to a captivated audience at JAM. It's sure to be a viral cult classic – you saw it here first!

JAM Camp and year-round media education programs aim to nurture creativity, technical skill, teamwork, confidence, and self-expression.

The Farm Boy

Sunday, July 30 2:00PM

Filmed in black and white using camera techniques of the WWII era it depicts, The Farm Boy was filmed mostly on director/dairy farmer George Woodard’s farm in Waterbury Center Vermont. A young man who drives milk truck for his father and meets a girl at a barn dance. The day after he marries her, he leaves for the Ardennes in Belgium, December, 1944. His mechanical experience growing up on the farm comes in handy during what will become known as The Battle of the Bulge. As his unit heads north, he is hit by enemy fire and left for dead. Produced by Joan Brace O'Neal.

$10.00 tickets (cash/check) will be sold at the door one hour prior to start time



Friday, August 18 6-7:30PM

In a society increasingly divided and isolated, storytelling can bring us together. Story Jam is a bi-monthly story circle where Upper Valley community members can meet to get to know each other through personal stories. Whether you are a new or seasoned storyteller; whether you are shy or extroverted – all are welcome! 

Organized by Judith Hertog and Michelle Rogge
