The Pest Rangers

Sometimes a simple informational video does the trick!

They’re creepy, they’re crawly, but bugs can be incredibly useful. These little creatures make up a huge part of our ecosystem, and while some may be a little frightening, there are some downright fascinating facts about bugs. There are billions of different bug species around the planet, but you don’t have to travel to find a diverse insect gathering. For some fun bug facts, look no further than your NEPA backyard!

Call us today and get a Pest Control maintenance plan set up. It's less expensive, more effective and far safer than doing it yourself!

Droning History: The Citizens Bank Building in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania

Join 570 Drone & Access Aerial as we explore one of Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania's most ornate and recognizable landmarks, the Citizens Bank Financial Center Building!

The Citizens Bank Building, designed in 1911 by Daniel Hudson Bernham an architect from Chicago, Illinois who was considered one of the early 20th century’s preeminent architects.

Bernham was influenced by the “City Beautiful Movement”, inspired by Roman Classicism and with a terra-cotta facade, it really shows it’s Neo-classicism architectural style.

The building is 13 stories high and 170 feet tall, the top story was added in 1926 built originally as the headquarters for Miners National Bank but has changed ownership over the years.

Goodnight Love [a short film]

It all started on a Monday when I asked Bridget LaMonica if she had a script for a super short film with a small cast. After giving it some thought she told me she might have what I'm looking for, but that I would need a bar, or a location that looked like a bar. So I sent a message to Estella Sweet the manager of HEAT NEPA and asked if we could use their club on a night they were closed, and she said yes, we can have it on Wenesday.

Now I needed a cast. I called Mike Perrella to play the lead male role and Ayla Dowling to play the lead female role, now "all" I needed was a bartender (And who better to play that role than Estella?) 2 other supporting characters and a stack of extras to play people in the background of the bar. As I messaged 2 dozen people literally simultaneously the cast was filling out nicely.

That's when Michael Belardi contacted me asking if I needed a DP and any gear, the only condition: I needed a legit sound guy. Enter Jared Grove, a professional film sound engineer from NYC who, due to Ayla twisting his arm, volunteered to help out on set. I told Michael I had a guy, Michael gave me a thumbs up and we were ready to roll!

With less than 10 hours before call time I still had work to do, Bridget and I ironed out the script, everyone was calling and messaging friends to help out on set. Travis Grosz enlisted a group of his friends to show up, one of the best local photographers in the area, Tom Reilly, from TR Photography volunteered his services as our stills/behind the scenes photographer and Cody Campbell, one of the clubs DJ's volunteered to run the lights and sound in the club. He also ended up having his film debut playing the role of Henry (the guy being hit on at the bar).

7PM, Wednesday night, less than 48 hours after I decided to make this film, I stepped onto set to direct my first narrative surrounded by one of the greatest group of people I've ever seen in one place. It was truly incredible. The film is 2 minutes long, it's pretty decent and I hope you love it, but you should know that HOW this film got made was a borderline miracle.

From the bottom of my heart; thank you. Without you I wouldn't be able to say this:

"Goodnight Love" a short film Directed by Jonathan Edwards.
