Muster and Architecture in Chicago

Muster and Architecture

I was asked to speak to the Chicago A&M Club for their annual Muster celebration on April 21, 2018. It was an absolute honor. Their membership went above and beyond ensuring Sarah and I enjoyed ourselves and felt comfortable in their city. While we were in town we checked off some tourist boxes. Pizza at Lou Malnati’s. Italian beef and hot dogs at Portillo’s. Millennium Park and “The Bean.” Wind in our faces. It was an action-packed weekend that involved a lot of walking, but we sat down for an hour and a half on a tour boat for the Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise. What an incredible way to learn about the city of Chicago. Of course I brought one of my StoryKeeping cameras along. 

 

Feel Like You’re Right There

A friend was asking about StoryKeeping and how I went about my interview process. I want future generations of viewers to feel like they’re right there in the living room having a conversation with the storyteller themselves. Lots of interview footage shot by other videographers is recorded off-axis, or with the storyteller speaking off to the side of the camera. Who wants to watch someone else’s conversation when they could be in the middle of the action themselves? In the StoryKeeping spirit, I’ve posted these pictures in the same order you’d experience them if you were sitting right there on the cruise. Enjoy!

    I just took the Chicago River Architectural Tour for the second time. Your photos are right on! This is the only way I can keep up with architectural changes in my home town–especially since I haven’t lived there for many years. I love going past the building on the corner of Michigan and Wacker where I worked in an ad agency for a year right after college. Our treat was to work late and then our boss would order us steak sandwiches from the famous London House restaurant in the same building. Thanks for reminding me of the old days.

      Approval from a Chicago native? I’ll take it! 🙂

      Thank you for the kind words, Leah. I’m proud I sparked some memories.
