New online videos to promote Campbell River

The City of Campbell River, Rivercorp, Tourism Campbell River & Region, North Island College, School Districts 72 & 93 and Volunteer Campbell River are working together to produce a new series of online videos that will help promote Campbell River to the world – and local businesses will be offered a starring role.

“Every year, through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, a number of Canadian communities are offered an opportunity to have up to five videos produced for promotional purposes,”says Vic Goodman, CEO of the Campbell River Economic Development Corp. “Community partners will be involved in scripting these five videos, and we’ll live up to the high visual standards set with our well-watched YVR video produced in Campbell River for the 2010 Winter Olympics. That video did a great job of focusing on the quality of life for people who live in and visit this spectacular place.

“We’re still working out details, but we have confirmed there will be an opportunity for local videographers to offer their services to CGI for this project. The FCM offer is free to local governments, and includes updates every three years. The short videos will showcase Campbell River’s economic development, tourism, educational opportunities, parks and recreation and community organizations.
