Hello Lombard! I’m Sean McMenemy, a local resident and I love my town. Even though I’ve only about 7 years it reminds me of the small towns I’ve lived in over the years. I enjoy the downtown and I just wanted to share some stories about Lombard. At least once a month I’ll put up a new short about some places I like go around Downtown Lombard. If other people have some ideas please share them here.
Here’s a little background on me. I’m a CG artist, that means I make graphics for video games, videos an films. I’m also a filmmaker and you can find out more about my work at SEANFX.com. I wanted to try a different kind of video making, documentary… I’ve never really done that kind of stuff before. Trying to find a story in something that you have no control over is pretty fun! I didn’t really know where to start and I kept wondering where I would find these neat stories.
One day while I was at the my Barbers I thought they would make a great story. So they are the first. I want to focus on my downtown mainly because I like going there and I would like to see it grow. I want to tell their stories because I want the business that are there to stay and help bring in new ones.
I hope you’ll like my site and feel free to add to it by adding comments or suggesting places to go and people to meet.
Oh yeah join my FLICKR group and share any cool photos you’ve taken in Lombard.
