Shannon has an exceptional eye for dance, perhaps because she was a dancer herself - this means that in addition to her technical skills she adds her own creative dimension to the process. This is key for me because I often work at breakneck speed and I need someone who can be right there with me - even a beat ahead of me - in terms of executing creative decisions. It's for these reasons that Shannon is an integral part of the videography at CityDance. Also, she's warm, accessible and open!
Eve White, Marketing Manager at CityDance
We’ve worked with Shannon for over a year to film numerous performances and create edited videos that highlight artists’ behind-the-scenes process and interviews. She is professional, flexible, and so easy to work with. She has the great ability to understand the idea and concept of what you are looking for, and will work quickly and independently to achieve it. The best part is she delivers the final product with her own creative twist that makes the overall project better than anticipated! Shannon is such a pleasure to work with and I can’t recommend her enough.
Cathy Teixeira, American Dance Institute General Manager
I have worked with Shannon Braine on over 40 projects (performance documentation, micro-documentaries, trailers and projection design) since we first met in 2008. Shannon produces consistently elegant, high quality documentation of concert dance, thoughtful and well edited micro-documentaries, eye-catching trailers, and supportive and well integrated projection design for dance on stage. She brings an utterly unique eye as an expert in movement, framing the visual image AND technology. Not only is her work excellent, she is incredibly reliable, a team player, and makes all those around her comfortable, which is especially important when collaborating with and/or interviewing artists on camera. I cannot say enough to endorse her!”
Christopher K. Morgan, Artistic Director of Christopher K. Morgan & Artists
Shannon is always professional, prompt, and reliable. As a production manager for a large dance organization with many shows, I have a lot on my plate. I really appreciate that Shannon takes care of everything on her end without needing to be prompted: scheduling, filming, editing, and setting up DVD menus and titles. I get our DVDs in the mail, and digital files online, like clockwork and Shannon has it all taken care of!"
