San Francisco is all about the Arts

Just going through the Velocity film and image archives with media director, Hiromi, and found this commercial, which featured Velocity Circus/ Arts & Entertainment advertising San Francisco as a destination for the arts. It was broadcast aboard every international flight coming to San Francisco as well as by several visitor and convention bureaus at the time.  I recall receiving lots of phone calls from enthusiasts who saw us aboard their flights.

Check it out:

Whirling Dervish of San Francisco

I personally had a cameo as the dervish in the spectacular courtyard of one of my favorite San Francisco monuments and fine arts museums, 

The Palace of the legion of Honor

Here is a short montage from the shoot:

And whirling at my favorite SF Monument, the Palace of Fine Arts, which at the time housed the interactive physics museum:
