Ann Hagemann, Actress

…such excellent work!

I’m writing you, my Central IL. based colleagues in the arts, to give a personal and professional recommendation for videographer, Raphael Rodolfi and his Peoria, IL. based Co. Videogenique.  Since beginning his co. 3 years ago I have hired him multiple times to film projects for me including actor slates, online auditions, as well as a showcase featuring my advanced acting/music students, of which some have used footage as documentation for college and conservatory admissions applications and on their own websites.    In addition, my actors reel, ( clips from film projects I’ve worked on), is always assumed to be created by a West coast  Co., ( correction, it’s based in none other than Peoria, IL.),  and recently at a pilot season audition I  was asked which LA video co. produced such excellent work!  It was a proud moment to tell them otherwise!

Raphael is focusing more of his efforts on working with the Arts community of Central IL. and recently filmed a dance event  at the Cornerstone building.  We all know that having a copy of our work for archival use and/or grant submissions is essential to keeping our studios, theatres and arts related co.s afloat.    His sensibility to filming dance, music, theatrical, and art gallery events is evident in his work.  And it’s important to him to be able to provide the Central IL. community with top quality production and quick turn around.  ( He has the ability to produce multiple dvds within a 30 min. time span if needed!)

On a personal note, while working in Chicago, Raphael( originally from France),  met Peoria born Katie Couri, and after marrying her moved to Peoria.  Katie teaches at Peoria Notre Dame High School and they have a beautiful 1 year old son!  Raphael looks forward to continuing to offer professional, affordable video services to his new friends in IL!
