Montclair Magazine May 2022 - Page 4

editor ’ s letter

When Montclair residents aren ’ t making the news , they ’ re covering it in one form or another . In this issue , we profile aman whose skills make it possible for us to have front row seats at the Super Bowl , Academy Awards , Grammys and other events seen by millions from the comfort of their own homes . Ron Travisano is the

CINDY co-owner of RailCam Robotic Systems , a SCHWEICH company that owns , installs and operates the HANDLER technology — tracks , towers , ropes , winches and more — that enable cameras to film in places humans can ’ t get to ( for example , afew feet from Taylor Swift ’ s face during the 2019 Billboard Awards ). You won ’ t look at massive live events the same way again after reading “ On Track to Get Killer Shots .”
The other storyteller we include in this issue is acclaimed author Alice Elliott Dark , whose highly anticipated novel , Fellowship Point , comes out July 5 . In the interest of helping others express themselves , she shares creative writing tips in “ The Writer ’ s Writer .”
Don ’ t stop reading there . Joan Garry , the former executive director of GLAAD , helps groups such as Montclair Art Museum and Jazz House Kids find their voices — and support — with her Nonprofit Leadership Lab , which has supported more than 10,000 members over four years .
