Vision Media Marketing Inc., New Jersey’s leader in government public relations, has produced a new 30-minute documentary film in collaboration with Mayor Jamel Holley and the Borough of Roselle titled “Roselle: A Story of Light.” The film looks back at the Borough’s storied history, including being the home of Declaration of Independence signer Abraham Clark and being the first village to be lit by Thomas Edison’s incandescent light bulb. It also shows the Mayor and Council’s vision for Roselle’s future, with new programs creating safer neighborhoods, attracting new business and using technology to better interact with residents. The documentary was directed and edited by Nimi Hendrix of Newark-based Secret Society Motion Pictures and written and produced by Philip Swibinski and Michael Makarski of Vision Media.
“Mayor Holley is one of the most innovative local elected officials in New Jersey and this project was his vision to teach the residents of Roselle about the borough’s amazing history while also touching on the successful initiatives he and the Borough Council have implemented,” said Philip Swibinski, an Account Executive and Digital Director at Vision Media. “The result is a fully realized look at this community that shows not just its history but the local businesses, non-profits, houses of worship, community leaders and local government that makes it a special place.”
“Roselle: A Story of Light” premiered on January 22nd at the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway in front of a packed crowd of Roselle residents and friends. It is now available on the Borough’s website and may be entered into local film festivals and competitions. It is the first 30-minute video presentation that Vision Media has produced, although the firm has decades of experience producing shorter form video content for clients in local government public relations, corporate communications, political campaign media and public affairs.
