Goodbye Garbers

DOCUMENTARY

I worked with a small and super talented group of people to tell the story of a legendary warehouse in Richmond, Virginia. The building was a creative hub filled with musicians, artists and DIY-ers simply looking for a unicorn-like space to hone their craft. Its closing left a hole in the creative community.

I shot, edited, art directed and loved making this documentary.

A Joyful Noise

For more than 40 years, the Garber Door Company called 2201 E. Franklin Street in Richmond, Virginia home. The 6,500 square-foot warehouse was largely unoccupied by the small business, and over the years, it gained a following among musicians and artists seeking makeshift practice spaces to make noise and art.

In June 2016, the Garber Door Company relocated their business and sold the building on Franklin Street, displacing a large portion of the city's musicians and silencing a familiar Richmond sound forever.
