One of my absolute joys is when young students reach out to me to see if we can help them make better videos. It was THE reason I created the iOgrapher in the first place. When I hear from kids all over the world I am so very humbled and excited to see what they do with our products.

Recently I received an email from a young man. His name is Anthony Bvlgari. Anthony is 14, from Southern California. And he has been singing opera since he was 3. He has had the opportunityiographer-image-1 to work with the likes of Andrea Bocelli and Michael Buble.

Anthony sent me a wonderful email with links to videos of him singing. He expressed his interested in our products and I sent him some samples to get creative with. I am a huge fan and supporter of this young man. Here are a few questions he answered for the blog.

1. How old are you? 

AB – I am 14 years old 

2. Tell us about yourself.

AB – I love to sing opera since I was 3 years old . I sang with Andrea Bocelli twice in 2010 and recorded for Michael Buble’s Christmas album in 2011 . Since then I have done many theatrical performances and concerts including singing with David Foster and Friends , LA Opera and international pop stars .

I am almost 15 and that means that I will start to change my voice so while I am at it ,  I have developed other talents within me .  Among them are acting , playing the violin and upright bass , tap dancing and being an indie filmmaker  .

I have only just started filming and editing myself in videos just under a year ago but that doesn’t stop me to have the ambition and the willingness to work hard while making great family oriented videos that bring a smile to people’s faces  . 

The only thing to fear is fear itself so thus to make something creative, all you need left is imagination . Filming captures that imagination in a bottle and in a format that  billions of people around the world will see for hundreds of years to come ! It is a wonderful feeling to see a finished product but ever more pleasantly appreciated when fans enjoy it  

3.  what do you like about mobile video?

AB – I love mobile video because, simply put,  it’s the future.  Not only that but it actually looks great ! 

As technology moves forward , built in cameras in your everyday smartphone are getting more and more industry grade . We are at the point in this journey that we can film actual full length feature films for the big screen with something that everybody used on a daily basis . All this became possible in only the past decade, imagine how technology will be in 2027! 

4. how does the iOgrapher help with your video content?

AB – The iOgrapher is truly the best invented film gear for the iPhone EVER!  It very easy to use considering  it’s 2 cold shoe mounts and aerodynamic design that allows for maximum handheld stabilization ! It is easy to slide my phone in and to attach the wonderfully made lenses.

Not only does the iOgrapher  make MY VIDEO look professional but it also makes ME look like a pro. I  have received  dozens of compliments the short time I used the iOgrapher that I truly think it needs to be a household item and replace the compact camera . 

5. What does the future hold for you?

AB – Lots of film , song and dance but I also want to  strengthen , evolve and flourish my opera career ! Opera is a very elegant branch of the arts and takes years to master . I will use all the lessons I have learned and continue cultivating it along with my other talents

6. who are some of your favorite artists?

AB – In Opera , my favorite singers are Luciano Pavarotti , Placido Domingo , Jose Carreras , Enrico Caruso , Maria Callas, Nicolai Ghiaurov , Ivan Rebroff,  Joan Sutherland and Dimitri Hvorostovsky . 

In acting , dancing and singing I love Gene Kelly , Fred Astaire , Ginger Rogers , Tyrone Power , Eleanor Powell , Cary Grant , Judy Garland , Bob Hope , Dean Martin , Frank Sinatra and Clark Gable .
