After a career spent traveling the globe, Tom Seligson says “it’s a lot more fun to work in Westport.”
The former CBS News film producer has teamed up with his wife — digital, print and broadcast journalist Susan Farewell — and other Westport media types to form Strategic Filmworks. The full-service production company specializes in cinematic-quality films for websites and broadcast media. It targets travel, sports and fitness, medical, architectural and non-profit clients.
One of Strategic Filmworks’ first efforts is “Keeping America’s History Alive.” Produced for the Westport Historical Society, it weaves together interviews, archival images and jaunty music. The video’s prominence on the WHS website may lead to heightened interest, new members and– who knows? — a donation or three.
The company’s client roster is broad. “They’re not all local — although that would be nice,” Seligson notes. “There is definitely a market for this here, and we’re glad to help.”
The WHS video highlights the impact of creative men and women on Westport’s history. In the digital age, Strategic Frameworks proves a worthy successor to that heritage.
