This isn’t our story. Rather, it’s somebody else’s story about us.
I’m a juggler. I’ve been performing as a juggler for most of my life. Design is my bread and butter—but I’m also a juggler. It gets weirder. My wife is a clown. Her main job is fine art, but she is also a clown. And together we provide entertainment and perform stage shows.
Now this site is about design (most of the time), so I won’t go into too much detail about that side of our lives. But it provides some necessary background for understanding why a filmmaker contacted my wife and me, wanting to make a documentary about our lives. He visited our juggling club, followed us for an hour of performing and visited our home twice. The juggler and the clown were the primary players in the finished product, but the designer and the artist also played main roles.
This was an incredible gift. It wasn’t created as an advertisement for any of our businesses, though it will certainly function in that way to a certain degree. It was a pleasure to work with Monelli Films. He’s the one telling the story here and that’s why Kate and I were very excited to see the finished product…and to find out how the story would end.
We wish Alexander Monelli all the best as he enters this into a local film festival, and we hope you enjoy this documentary!
Update: “Juggle” won second place in the Lancaster County Community Foundation’s 2014 Film Fest.
