WHOweARE Here we are—the local farmers (my new heroes), the shop owners, the man with the hot dog cart, the puppeteer, the school teacher, the musicians, elders, artists and children—recording and sharing stories about our community. We are vibrant and rich, from a perspective where everyone’s story is precious. This is who we are and this is why we’re here. —Melissa Hewitt Having been in advertising for many years, it’s such a pleasure to get to know business owners on a personal level. For the first time I really understand what their businesses are about and who they are. A picture really does tell a thousand words. These videos bring the whole story together in a way that makes sense. It’s a whole new way of advertising. —Jesse Marcus VISITvortex PO Box 82 High Falls, NY 12440 email@example.com www.visitvortex.com 845-687-3470 Cover art by Matthew Palin
