Lasallian Videos – by Scott Gibbs
|

The videos on this page were created by Scott Gibbs in 1998 and 1999 for major gatherings of Lasallians of the District of San Francisco. Scott was hired by the District because of his professional expertise in putting together videos for large professional corporations. He was tasked with going to all the places where District of San Francisco had invested personnel and financial assistance and convey – through his eyes – what these involvements had led to. There was no advanced “message” that was prescribed beforehand. As a result, the first video, called “Inspiration,” was created, with the subsequent videos emerging afterwards.

Until the end of his life, Scott was highly appreciative of the opportunity to have been able to learn about, document, and be involved with the Brothers, the Lasallian community, and Lasallian education.
