Filmmaker Rob Coelius introducing the Village Life documentary on 10-21-12.

Rob Coelius of Video Farm Productions has worked with the library to film and produce five local history documentaries, starting with One Room Schoolhouses in 2008 and proceeding on to WWII Veterans and Farmers and completing Village Life and Korean War in 2012.

Rob films each interview and edits it so we can present them on this website individually. He also creates each film, finding a narrative threads that connect each interview and tell a complete story. Rob incorporates the photos, finds archival footage, selects the music and handles all the creative details that come together to create engaging and informative films.

It has been a pleasure to work with Rob and his company, Video Farm Productions and we look forward to completing our next documentary: Local Landmarks, which will trace the route of a walking tour of Chelsea’s historic downtown. We look forward to many more successful projects with Rob and Video Farm to continue to document and share the stories of Chelsea.
