Visiting different festivals throughout the spring, summer, and fall has always been a special treat for us in the past years. This past summer we were to experience a different type of festival, different from anything we had ever been to in the past. We attended the Douglas County Historical Steam Festival at Arcola, Illinois, for the purpose of producing/directing a professional video production of the Festival which will be available on the market this summer.

From the moment the production crew stepped onto the show grounds color/sound/aroma/and friendly handshakes engulfed us. The reputation that this show had gained was the determining factor in going to the time and expense of recording its sights and sounds for future posterity. One only had to be on the show grounds for a short time to realize why the show had gained such a reputation. Bustling activity all around us indicated that if we were going to shoot this three day festival we had better waste no time because this show was 'On the Move.'
