Tony Bettler, Video Producer

After retiring from my day job in New York City, I decided to pursue my hobby. I took courses at the School of Visual Arts to improve my knowledge in the craft of video and sound recording as well as non-linear editing. I produced a number of short movies for private use.

In 2004, I joined a group of European scientists led by an old friend into the Bolivian Amazon Basin for one month to document their field work. Over the past 10 years I have accompanied them five more times. The movies were shown primarily during lectures.

Recently my wife, Marla Milne, and I have produced movies for Greenport community events and about our worldwide travels. Some have been shown at the Greenport Movie Theatre and or the Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport. Our movies are produced under the name 'View2XL' and can be viewed on www.view2xl.com
