In 2004 I made a video for Andronica's 75th Anniversary. It was played to guest and vendors at the very prestigious Paramount Theater in Oakland. I cut it down again from 22 minutes to 10 minutes. This is the first cut of the shorter version.

The Video Entered: The Story of CARH The video entered was her production for a non-profit organization, CARH Inc., entitled "The Story of CARH". This video highlights the over 30 year history of an organization that helps an under served population in our community. This touching story illustrates the hard work and dedication of ordinary people helping an extraordinary cause. Stacy's Castro Valley company, Playback.net (established in 1984) followed the organization over a period of a year and condensed it in an entertaining 15 minute video of their organization. The story was told by vintage train conductor, Larry Kriegbaum who takes the viewers on the Niles Canyon steam train in Sunol, California, through a year in the life of CARH. Whimsically composed by Jack Waldenmaier. The story ends with a touching song donated by the artist Kym Jessing "The Mountain In Me" which was so fitting for the part.
