Another Look at the 2019 TASIS Commencement Ceremony

The 2019 TASIS Commencement Ceremony was live-streamed by digiQualia, a Florence-based film production company that employed a four-camera setup to deliver this impressive product on the morning of June 1. Now that the video team has had some time to clean up its footage in post-production and divide the ceremony into smaller segments, we are pleased to share the following clips.
