It came as a delightful surprise…well, maybe shock is more like it. I got a call from New York City from filmmaker John Ryan Johnson who told me that he was hired by American Express to make a video for Small Business Saturday. He was charged with choosing one retail shop to film in the Boston marketplace and HE CHOSE US! It was our website that reeled him in.
Well, that got Rita Rose in such a tizzy that she was running circles around me stirring up dust bunnies from who knows where. You remember what she was like over an outfit for the royal nuptials! It was all she could think about…what little pug outfit for a trim Miss Rita Rose to wear? She settled on basic beige with dark accents. The girl has such style!
John Ryan Johnson arrived with his wonderful crew and spent 7 or 8 hours filming everything in sight….I told every story I knew ’til I was hoarse. But look what magic he made! I am so thrilled to have this wonderful commercial. American Express will be putting on their Small Business Saturday site and may use snippets for a national commercial. We will keep you posted.
An lastly, kudos to my Rita Rose who is always the star of any show and to Julie at Levesque Creative for our website and for her own star turn in the this little gem of a video.
