Phoenixville Country Club Video

The Phoenixville Country Club is a great place for a wedding. We made this promotional video recently for their website. Besides being one of the most beautiful settings to have your wedding in Chester County, the bookings are handled by the nicest person in the wedding and event industry, Dawn Gannon.

Why Italian Switzerland?

Did you know that in certain Alpine valleys populations live which are Italian by culture and Swiss by nationality? We didn't either until we videoed an international conference at the University of Pennsylvania entitled "Why Italian Switzerland?" In addition to videoing all the
 sessions we also took photos of the dignitaries and scholars.
There were two translators in a booth at the back doing simultaneous interpreting from Italian into English and vise versa. Attendees wore radio headsets like they do at the U.N. to hear the translation live. 

Senator Filippo Lombardi, a member of the Upper House of the Federal Swiss Parliament, was an engaging speaker.

Professor Mario Botta is a world-renown architect. His Powerpoint presentation was very interesting. Botta studied under famed architect Louis Kahn at Penn. At a lunch break he
and his wife sat next to us, and I thought they were very down to earth and friendly.
By the conference's end I thought that I would really like to go see Switzerland, and especially Italian Switzerland, where I now have friends.

Our Favorite Subject

One of the best perks of having all this fancy video equipment is being able to record our son, Henry, in HD. I think there's more footage of him than there is of Elvis! But seriously, I don't know when we'll have time to edit it. Maybe by the time he's in college.
