Share Article

Dvideo Productions of Purchase, NY produced a documentary video for The Apawamis Country Club of Rye, NY to present at their 125th Anniversary Ball.

When a club has been an American institution for 125 years there is reason for celebration. As the historic Apawamis Club in Rye, New York was gearing up for their Anniversary Gala, Bob Dunn, longtime club member and past President, enlisted Dvideo Productions of Purchase, NY to produce a documentary-style video for the event. Arie Marek, President of Dvideo said, "Producing videos for businesses and organizations is a very exciting process! Working with well-known and respectable names like the Apawamis Club makes it even more rewarding.”

Bob wrote the script based on his knowledge of the club’s history. He dove deep into the club’s archives and found an abundance of print, film and video material that was turned over to Dvideo’s Post Production team. They took the data and translated it into a 35-minute documentary video made available on the Club’s website for all members to enjoy. Dvideo also cut a 6-minute version that was presented to the 650 guests at the gala held at the Club in December. "Producing a video to celebrate the club's 125 years had many components. Try to imagine how much material there is; videos, photos, interviews, historical milestones, memories of members and so much more,” said Marek.

Network television sports announcer Tim Ryan got on board to provide Voice Over narration for the video. He was a club member for 20 years and had fond memories himself. As one of the earliest golf clubs in America, Apawamis has a rich history of hosting a myriad of sporting events including the 1911 U.S. Amateur Championship as well the USGA Curtiss Cup and recently the Senior Women’s National Amateur Championship. In addition to athletics, the club is a place for families to celebrate and enjoy social events and weddings. President George H. W. Bush and Barbara Peirce Bush met at a dance at Apawamis in the early 1940’s.

Apawamis staged tournaments and events throughout the year and topped it all off by hosting a dinner for 650 guests with special recognition given to the families who have been members for up to 7 generations. Each of the guests had their eyes locked on the screen while the video played and many went to the website later to watch the longer version.

Dvideo’s production crew didn’t have to travel far to film club members and former presidents reminisce about the past, which made the process simple and convenient. However, Dvideo also helps many organizations around the country tell their stories in creative ways, even if they aren't close by. Marek states, “With today's technology we have the ability to produce videos beyond your imagination."
