Thanks to video team, a new way to share Chautauqua

Thanks to video team, a new way to share Chautauqua

Like most Chautauquans, Matt Cole has seen a sailing race on Chautauqua Lake. John Liau has watched kids in the Children’s Club chase after watermelons and play in pools of foam, and Laura Taflinger has experienced a lecture in the Amphitheater. But unlike most attendees at these events, Cole, Liau and Taflinger’s perspectives were from behind a video camera lens.

Cole, Liau and Taflinger make up Chautauqua Institution’s video team and can be seen at almost any event on the grounds, from lectures to games to religious services. Because of their efforts, the Institution will be able to preserve the season’s events through vignettes and videos on the Chautauqua website.

On a sunny Friday morning at Boys’ and Girls’ Club, the grassy waterfront behind Beeson Youth Center was unusually quiet. There were no campers gathered in groups on the grass behind the Boys’ Club building and no kids chatting on the green benches inside the Girls’ Club.

Everyone flocked to one location — the recreation field between Club and the John R. Turney Sailing Center for Club’s annual Track and Field Day.
