E. J. Stewart, once the area's largest video production facility, has quietly resumed operations at its old site at 525 Mildred Ave. in Primos. At its closing in May 1988, the company employed about 65 people, operating two of the largest sound studios on the East Coast. It now has a full-time staff of eight. The facility is being renovated, and the company has hopes of regaining its prestige in the video productions business. "We're focusing more on quality rather than quantity," said David Bowers, the company's general manager.

Employers use them to train workers, salesmen use them to sell, and manufacturers use them to teach workers about new machinery. They're corporate videotapes, and they're very big business. The Brush Report, the industry's prime analyst, projects that $5 billion will be spent this year on corporate video production, up from $207 million in 1973. As the industry has settled down to a steady growth pattern, all segments of the video-production business in South Jersey are doing quite nicely, thank you. The camera operators, scriptwriters, director/producers, the electricians, the technical crew, the editors, the salesmen - all are pleased about a trend that experts say eventually will lead to a proliferation of individual work stations that let workers view videotaped material.

Executive producer Lauren Placko, 17, stared at the television monitor and grimaced. "Lesha, can you come look at this?" she yelled, furrowing her brow. "You can't fit everybody in this shot. " Too eager and impatient to wait, Placko hoisted the 12-inch monitor off the floor, marched over to technical director Lesha Sanders, 17, and set down the screen in front of her. Sanders, who was assisting the video cameraman, glanced at the monitor and immediately began barking out orders - Hollywood style.

When Sally Mitlas was searching for a new home, the last place she expected to find one was around the corner, in a small community in Upper Dublin Township. But there it was, a house that seemed to beckon. "I've always really wanted a cabin in the woods," says Mitlas, owner of Mitlas Productions in Jenkintown. The bandleader, who spends many weekends providing the entertainment for weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs, was seeking a quiet retreat in her daily life. In 2006, she saw a property for sale and "figured I'd have a look.

THE BIG "first" for the local run of Cirque du Soleil's "Totem," which opened yesterday and runs through June 30, is that it is housed in a specially erected tent on the Camden waterfront. Heretofore, whenever the celebrated Montreal-based company has presented its groundbreaking blend of you-gotta-see-'em-to-believe-'em specialty acts (aerialists, acrobats, contortionists etc.) and psychedelic staging in this area, it has always been on the west side of the Delaware River. But "Totem" boasts another "first.

Nick Pahade will succeed Rick Parkhill , the California investor who founded Poptent in 2007 to match independent filmmakers with Fortune 100 companies and ad agencies to generate content at about one-seventh the cost of traditional production.

On one flat-screen, a young woman talks about being stalked. On a monitor across the room, another sexual-assault victim describes the incident that changed, and still haunts, her life. "The next thing I remember, he was on top of me," she tells the interviewer. "I distinctly remember saying, 'I don't want to do this.' " Her name is Katya Palsi, and on the day we meet she is watching herself on video in a Rowan University editing suite, hoping that her candor will help prevent what happened to her when she was 15 from happening to others.

SPORTSCASTER Lou Tilley introduced District Attorney Seth Williams to speak Friday at a Ritz-Carlton event kicking off the Philadelphia Soul/Greater Media Radio's Stand Up campaign against child sexual abuse. As the event ended, Tilley went over to shake Williams' hand and compliment the speech, only it wasn't Williams, but a member of his security detail, whom Tilley had mistaken for the district attorney. Tilley, who works on the "Propper Hockey" Flyers show and will broadcast Soul games on WMCN-TV, laughed when we called him about the mix-up yesterday.

WHYY's headquarters on Independence Mall has grown and is about to become more welcoming as the public broadcaster's $12 million capital improvement project nears completion. The Dorrance H. Hamilton Public Media Commons has added 8,000 square feet to WHYY's 60,000 square feet of studio and office space on Independence Mall. The building stretches from the station's front door on Sixth Street to Seventh Street. The addition will be a hub for teaching audio and video production - for television, radio, and the Web. "What we're going to do in this facility is transfer our digital knowledge to our audience so they can use digital technology to tell their own stories," WHYY president and chief executive officer William J. Marrazzo said.

The Metropolitan Opera's new regime will be credited with and accused of many things in the coming weeks - but "demure" won't be among them. The Monday opening of the 2006-07 season looked more like the Oscars than the opera, with a red carpet for pop star Rufus Wainwright and movie actor Jude Law, seen on giant video screens both in Lincoln Center Plaza and in Times Square. Rock star Lou Reed was seen lining up at the bar at intermission. Retired mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne merrily greeted fans.
