Lynn, MA – Lynn Uncovered is a new web series from LCTV that aims to tell stories within the community. This city is filled with amazing people. We wouldn’t have amazing art, restaurants and organizations without them. We aim to have a new episode of this web series produced monthly.

I met Dano about 7 years ago in a program called Door 2 Door where we created paintings for the annual RAW bash event that happens every year. Daniel is one of the most talented guys I know from Lynn. His work is a reflection of himself. Inspired by the locals around him and the scenery that surrounds him.

I was actually filming some b-roll of downtown Lynn when I spotted Dano working on a sign for a new art studio in Central Square. I went on to say hi and told him about Lynn Uncovered. From there we started filming for the first episode of this new series.
Capturing him in his space naturally was very important to me, so nothing you see on screen was setup. I chose not to use the tripod too much because I didn’t want to miss any good moments. The project took 4 days to shoot at about 1-2hrs each. Complimenting Dano’s work through the edit was important to me so finding music that was nostalgic and using film grain definitely helped put this piece together.
Dano is just one of many locals that help mold this city.
