Our first TV commercial

Our first TV commercial was filmed on July 29th. We expect it to go live next week, on Comcast cable channels in Winchester city and Frederick, Clarke, Warren and Page counties. We have also uploaded it to YouTube, so here it is:

The soundtrack is a violin arrangement of Casta Diva, from Norma by Bellini. (This was purchased from UniqueTracks.com with a Commercial Synchronization and Multi-Usage License explicitly permitting use on YouTube.)  (Edited August 9th: This is now the version without the unregistered software watermark.)

New picture of Lorenza

There is a new picture of Lorenza on her personal resume page. This was taken a few days ago in our studio, as we were filming our TV commercial which should soon be released and hitting the airwaves (well, in fact the cable networks, courtesy of Comcast). Part of our mural is visible in the background.
