Three Del Ray businesses – Cheesetique, Caboose and Let’s Meat on the Avenue are the local stars in a Chamber of Commerce video contest designed to promote free enterprise.
In January the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s American Free Enterprise: Dream Big campaign launched the “I Am Free Enterprise” contest to honor America’s current and future entrepreneurs.
Contestants were asked to create a 3-minute video explaining their free enterprise story – the successful launch of a business, the invention of an innovative product, or how their idea will generate new jobs to boost the economy.
The incentive? Over $100,000 in prizes and great bragging rights!
Local videographer Meredith Bragg, a long time resident of Del Ray, now living in Parker Gray, jumped at the chance to showcase three of the independent businesses that have found a wildly successful home on Del Ray’s Mt. Vernon Avenue – Cheesetique, Caboose and Let’s Meat on the Avenue. Acting as producer, director, casting agent, voice coach, sound technician, make-up artist, animal wrangler, 1st, 2nd and 3rd ‘grip’ (and just about anything else), Meredith has perfectly captured the spirit and enthusiasm of these entrepreneurs.Meredith has written, shot, edited, and produced video on a professional level for many years. His work has appeared on national and local television and he has sold a web series to Warner Brothers television. In 2008 he concluded post-production on a feature-length documentary following the 2006/2007 post-graduate football team at Hargrave Military Academy.
We’re thrilled to showcase Merediths’ work and will let you know the minute the contest results are announced. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
