Crossing Dumbo, a web series of video portraits of artists, entrepreneurs and residents in Dumbo Brooklyn. This is a collaboration between DumboNYC and our talented friends over at Blue Barn Pictures. Different directors from Blue Barn Pictures, a creative content agency, bring their own approach to each interview to create a distinct profile of the person being interviewed and place them within the Dumbo community. The group at Blue Barn Pictures truly love what they do and support the community in a positive way, and for that we’re grateful to have them be a part of Dumbo.

During the 2011 Dumbo Art Festival last week, Blue Barn Pictures showcased the Crossing Dumbo videos at their studio. A new website for Crossing Dumbo was also released last week. (photos courtesy of Blue Barn Pictures):
