Kenny Dalsheimer founded The Groove Productions in 1996. He received his MA in Anthropology from Duke University in 1985 and then taught middle school social studies for ten years at Carolina Friends School in Durham, NC. In 1996 Kenny reconnected with his childhood dreams of shooting with cameras and making movies and with his interest in the power of documentary film.
He was also looking for ways to marry his teaching, creative, and social justice interests in new work. Over the years, Kenny has split his time directing documentaries, editing and shooting for film projects, producing non-profit and community videos, and teaching youth video workshops.
The Groove Productions
The Groove Productions was born during the making of our first film project – “Go Fast, Turn Left: Voices from Orange Country Speedway”. ‘The groove’ is a racing term for, “the fastest route around the track.
In addition to our documentary and video projects, The Groove Productions offers a full palette of production and editing services from shooting events, art happenings and interviews to editing video footage and photographs to compressing video for online distribution.
