The Village of Lisle is serious about its image. The Village Board has just approved the hiring of Two Parrot Productions to create three films. One film would be a six to eight minute documentary style film about the Village, its services, and the way of life that has been so appealing to many of the residents: living in a community so infused with and surrounded by nature.

Two other segments are to be produced. One is a lead-in for the Village Meeting broadcast, and another is a thirty second commercial.

Videotaping will take place over the next seven months and include Village services, such as leaf pickup and snow removal, as well as well and police and fire department segments. A committee of four village officials: Catherine Schuster, Dennis Gilbertson, Eric Ertmoed, and Marcia Amos studied proposals from a variety of firms and eventually chose a Lisle production company. Two Parrot Productions is owned by Bill and Jessica Kizorek, a father and daughter team that has filmed in over 40 countries. Bill has lived in Lisle for over twenty years and has, during that time, appeared on, or helped produce shows for Oprah, 20/20, the BBC, and all the major networks. Jessica went to CU Boulder, graduated magna cum laude, and has won the Vision Award Gold Medal for Excellence in Video Production.

According to Bill Kizorek, "this is a real honor for us to be involved in the project. The Village officials we interviewed with were determined to create a set of films that would reflect the quality of life of the residents here, and why this is such a great place to live. Money Magazine cited Lisle as one of the best 20 places in the country to live, and we will be illustrating those reasons in the final production. This will include festivals, like the Lights of Lisle that opens up with a parade December 5th."

The Kizoreks have created documentary films around the world, most recently for Lions Club International Foundation, filming in Cameroon at the Jimmy Carter Center for River Blindness.
