During the particularly frigid month of January, our video production team squeezed into our post-turkey long johns and hit the streets of Edmonton. Our mission was to gather vibrant shots of our city for Alberta Tourism’s stock footage collection but we found so much more.
Our crew, in tow with some talented Edmonton models and actors, set the scene by ice skating at City Hall, shopping on Jasper Avenue, dining, snowshoeing, segwaying, and cross country skiing at Muttart Conservatory. We even got up and personal with the ice carvers at the ‘Ice On Whyte Festival’.
In February, we braved the cold again and joined the festivities of ‘The Flying Canoe Adventure’ held in the Mill Creek ravine and La Cité Francophone. We were greeted with beautiful light installations (in the trees!), live music and toasted bannock over an open fire. Our noses may have been cold but our hearts and bellies were warm!
Check out some samples of what we captured here.
