We recently collaborated with Lagos Jewelry, whose global headquarters happens to be right here in Philadelphia. Our crew is on hand creating a campaign of videos, but this one captures the essence of the company’s signature inspiration line, Black Caviar. We are revisiting the old-world craftmanship that creator Steven Lagos first incorporated and melding with it state of the art technology used to develop each intricate piece. From the design floor to the workshop, we follow the process by showcasing systems and artistry leading to incomparably beautiful jewelry. Charles Morabito directs, combing over hand-drawn sketches and carefully illuminating diamonds, gems, and precious metals. This deep dive explores the treasure trove of Caviar’s rich history.
Conlin’s Digital Print and Copy Center has been a family owned and operated company since 1980. To help celebrate this legacy, Maestro Filmworks dove right into the day with the team, capturing the vast spectrum of their expertise. The company has been expanding quickly over the years and generations. For us, that meant plenty of large machinery, intricate systems, and dynamic community interaction to capture.

We are celebrating our thirteenth year as a full service production company and couldn’t be prouder of our team and our history! Established in 2005, we’re proud to say our creative house is now a teenager! Just so, we are ready to take on more of the responsibilities that accompany such a rank. Maestro’s key initiative is supporting our local communities in education and art by using our resources to buttress their missions while honing our passions. Most immediately, it is our collaboration with Stay True Philadelphia. A seven-year long relationship so far, we are gearing up for another successful summer program teaching students photography through our subsidiary Philly Photo Studio. It’s a fantastic way to kick off our 13th year, developing further as a leader of visual arts by supporting the promising young minds of our future.

We’re also looking forward to rounding out the second half of the year with Philly-Forward creative content. Extending from the corporate scene, we’ve set some creative goals toward features and shorts that will build on our pride for this city and its communities! Be sure to tune in to the current manifestation of that: our ongoing Long Story Short program through Instagram @makelongstoryshorts
Happy Birthday, Maestro!
