Biodance Breaks a Leg

The beautiful, breathtaking, and eerie dance company Biodance just closed a fascinating show at the Hochstein Music Hall for the fifth season in a row.¬† While inspiring solos and duets were a part of this creative feat, the two highlights of the evening were a reprise of the technically astounding Liebeslieder (a waltz by Strauss performed live by vocal group RESONANZ) and the Rochester premiere of No Dancing Allowed, a playful yet powerful nod to youth in WWII America. Both featured contemporary dance styles, which (for those of you who don’t know) means the abstract kind that makes you go “Hmmm?”

Choreographer Missy Pfohl Smith has worked with Envision in the past and commissioned us to record the event for the purpose of creating a DVD, and we are in the process of working on it now. When intern Jessica Thurston starts work at Envision at the end of the month, this will be one of her first projects.

Rochester Business Ethics Award

The Rochester Business Ethics Award (affectionately known as the ‘Ethie’) is an annual award that goes to companies in this region who demonstrate high ethical standards in their everyday business dealings as well as in the face of crises or challenges. As part of the competition, business applicants are asked to present an introductory video displaying a basic overview of the company’s practices.

This is the 4th year that Envision has produced all of the videos for the competition highlighting the companies.

Behind the Scenes of ‘Humans vs. Zombies”

For the past several years, a student at Brockport College named Nate Sorrentino has been producing a film version of the widespread Humans vs. Zombies nerf war that is now a tradition on campus. He has been gaining momentum this past year, expanding the projects into short films with actual plots and later a large-scale web mini-series (rather than the theatrical trailer parodies he had done in the past.)

We helped him gain publicity recently by producing a behind the scenes video of one of his recent films.

Gamebreak Films at Millenium Games

For a recently filmed episode of Gamebreak, we found ourselves at Millenium Games, a popular and thorough gaming store in Henrietta, NY. We wanted to not only explore the store, but also to stop by the attached gaming room where patrons actually take the games they have bought in the store in order to try them out with other gamers.

On this particular day of filming, the Rochester Gaming Society was holding their regular meeting in Millenium’s gaming room, and we had the opportunity to interview a few of their regulars–including one of the founding members. They are a great group of people, and you’ll be able to see more about them when the episode airs.

We were then greeted by, Joe, a helpful sales associate who gave us an introduction to the store and then took us on a tour of all of Millenium’s deck-building games–Dominon, Eminent, Domain, Nightfall . . .

Can you guess what the topic of an upcoming episode is going to be?

If not, hopefully you won’t have to wait for long to find out! This episode is coming soon! Also, stayed tuned for more episodes filmed at cool locations outside of the Fortress of Gamitude.
