Project Main Details
We are producing a film that highlights a company that has been in existence for almost 100 years and has been managed by three generations of the same family. This film is predominately about the founding father, and the company that he built. This short documentary will be shown at a dinner celebration for the company in December.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Narrator: It began in 1908, when a Welsh family crossed the Atlantic to start a new life in the United States. It was the dawn of the 20th century, and those with determination, perseverance and ambition found tremendous opportunity.
Narrator: Born in New York City, David O. Evans was the youngest of 10 children. David learned early in life that work was what he called a "necessity and a privilege." At 16, his father died, forcing him to quit school and find work to support his family.
Narrator: With a team of horses and a dray wagon, David started hauling bricks for fifty cents a thousand for a contractor in New Jersey – his introduction to the construction industry.
Narrator: By the time he got married in 1910, David had already secured his first two building contracts and purchased property in Rahway, New Jersey.
Narrator: But tragedy struck again in 1912, when his wife died suddenly of a miscarriage. He was devastated, but he pulled himself together and moved back to New York. Soon he was working for two construction companies and became the foreman for the 4th Avenue subway in Brooklyn, where he proved his ability to set steel beams. His employers were so impressed, they made him General Superintendent at the age of 21, earning over $100 a day - more than a bank president at the time!
Narrator: In 1914, David accepted a four-year overseas contract - an impressive engineering project for such a young man.
Narrator: 94 years in, Elberon
continues to grow, defying the odds by passing the torch to a third generation of family leadership, made possible by the incredibly strong foundation built by the son of Welsh
immigrants at the dawn of the 20th century.
