Lafayette Cunningham is a graphic designer and owner of a local graphic design company in Rome, NY. In addition to his trade, he has a passion for film making. His latest project is titled, "After the Storm," a short film about the City of Rome, NY. It's pretty impressive.

The reference to the "Copper City" in this film is one to Revere Copper Products founded in the 1920s in Rome. The copper concept is one that has stuck, even inspiring one local brewery. This Central New York city is growing, and will soon shine like a new penny.
