The new video highlights some of the great recreation opportunities around Castlegar.

Destination Castlegar video gets big hits

Thousands view video highlighting local attractions since release

There’s a gorgeous new video of Castlegar out there, and it’s getting a fair amount of attention.

Destination Castlegar has released a new video as part of its local promotion campaign, highlighting some of the beauty of the region’s landscape. The short features several activities in the Castlegar area, including rock climbing, running, and water sports.

The 70-second video has received 49,000 hits since its release last week.

“We were hoping to get a real feel that Castlegar is an all-around, family-oriented, attractive, beautiful place to come and visit and potentially relocate to,” says Andrea Ryman, marketing co-ordinator for Destination Castlegar.

The video was produced by Lee Orr and Eric Gonzalez, local photographers and producers who have been working with Destination Castlegar for the last year. Orr took photos, while Gonzalez produced the video, says Ryman.

The $10,000 contract with the two young men also allowed Destination Castlegar to build up a solid library of stock photos from the region.

The community marketing agency is just starting with video production. It’s signed a new contract with Stacked Films to produce a series of short videos that will highlight specific events and activities in the community in all four seasons.

That material is scheduled to be released starting in early 2019.
