“When I was 8 years old , I was taken to see The Magic Flute by my Mother.” Joanna Bergin was born in Argentina, grew up in London and I met her in NYC. Joann had just flown in from London hours earlier and stopped by one her favorite restaurants – Spur Tree lounge. Our conversation covers her journey to being an opera artist; genres of opera, people’s thoughts on opera, and what she has learned from traveling ” I love to travel. People are people are people are people where ever they are. We all want the same thing..to laugh..to smile..to be happy”.
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
