Leslie Knope doesn’t make an appearance in our videos for the Iredell Parks & Recreation Department but they were still a lot of fun to shoot & edit. When we were approached about doing the video series in May it was requested that four videos be put together with each one focusing on a different facet of the department (Facilities, Athletics, Camps & Adult Trips and a special spotlight on the Outdoor Education Center).
Gathering footage for the videos had us zig-zagging all over Iredell County. We stopped at different playgrounds, parks, schools, pools and even made a special journey to capture a tubing trip. Unfortunately we didn’t bring our bathing suits so we had to record all the fun from the sidelines.
While at the different locations we’d occasionally grab some quick interviews that we’d later insert into the various videos to help tell a story. Once the editing was completed the videos were shared on social media and posted on the department website so that visitors & residents alike could educate themselves on what all the Iredell Parks & Recreation Department has to offer.
Check out our handiwork and learn about some fun stuff…and if you find yourself at any of the activities tell them JGI sent ya!
