But there are a few more Greenbelters making community video who aren’t eligible for the award, due to their connection to GATe. Sooooo, I’ve asked board and staff members to suggest one of theirs from 2021 for this collection that I call the Best of the Ineligible Greenbelt Videos. I think they help tell the whole story of what Greenbelt videographers are up to these days. So again, enjoy!
GATe Board President Frank Gervasi
Frank’s entry is “Preserving our Past – Walter Pierce Park.” It shows the culmination of a 17-year volunteer project to preserve the Black and Quaker Cemeteries located at Walter Pierce Park in Adams Morgan Washington, DC.
GATe Board Secretary Claude Aubert
Remember the cicadas of 2021? Claude’s “From Nymph to Cicada (A Timelapse Video)” will bring back memories!.
GATe Board Treasurer John Campanile
John contributed his “18th Annual Greenbelt Blues Festival” to this collection. It was filmed September 25 of 2021 and brings back even better memories. Mark your calendars now for the 2021 Greenbelt Blues Festival – September 17.
GATe Executive Director Phoebe McFarb
Phoebe offered her “Greenbelt City Council Elections 2021,” and I’m so glad she did. I remember what a trooper she was to film and edit this SO quickly. After election results were finally announced to the crowd at the Fire Station at around midnight, she raced home and pulled an all-nighter to get the story ready for public distribution by 4:30!
