The World On A String
The ever-evolving Serafin String Quartet is raising its profile with a new CD release, a London concert and a project with a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer. It’s safe to say, the Serafins aren’t fiddling around.

Film Brothers celebrates 10 years in business while shooting for its next decade of lights, camera and action.
From a whacky indie film called “Franks & Weiners” to a legitimate video-production company, Wilmington’s Film Brothers have evolved from Logan House heroes. It only took 10 years.
“We are a serious business,” says Gordon DelGiorno, one half of the fraternal team. “We aren’t just a bunch of people running around with cameras. We were at one point, but not anymore.”
Gordon and his brother Greg started making feature-length films, but quickly moved on to documentaries such as “Jack of Clubs” about the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware. Now they’re producing commercials, too.
Greg attributes Film Brothers’ success to a strong local fan base that supports the company and turns out to see its films. “They come to our films and put their money into it and basically keep us going, so that has a lot to do with the people around here,” he says. “Wilmington is generally a small enough area that you can build a strong network.”
Whether people like the films or not, Gordon says Film Brothers projects are not only entertainment but a way for people to reconnect. The evidence? About 150 business owners and entrepreneurs helped the company celebrate its milestone.
“We brought art and business together, and that has kind of been our calling card,” Gordon says.
As Film Brothers works toward its next 10 years, the brothers are making connections in Los Angeles while evolving into a marketing and networking video company.
“We want to stay here in Delaware, I don’t want to move to L.A.,” Gordon says. “We are doing commercials, doing festivals and community events and staying busy here—and looking for the big home runs, too.” —Caitlin Maloney
