2017 In Retrospect

We would like to thank the Lord for opening so many doors that provided so many blessings to Spirit Vision Films this last year.

We would also like to thank our many clients for the opportunity to serve them with our videography products. Thank you so much!

Last winter we worked with multiple agencies to create the Off-Channel Reservoir Project, a compelling video highlighting the need for an off-channel reservoir next to the Dungeness River to help the City of Sequim with storm run-off, the farmers using the river to irrigate summer crops, and the returning late summer salmon that depend on the river to spawn. These agencies include:

  • Clallam County
  • City of Sequim
  • Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe
  • Washington Water Trust
  • Dungeness Water User’s Association
  • Clallam Conservation District

We helped with the Taste of the Peninsula for the third year in a row, creating a video focusing on what the Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County had done throughout the year.

Then working in association with Peninsula Area Public Access TV (PAPA TV) of Port Angeles, we created the first episode of the On the Road series … the New Dungeness Light Station. 

We then followed that episode with one created by PAPA TV’s Patric Mcinnes and his Skill Center’s videography class, named the Port Angeles Underground.

Our third episode in the series was completed in late August by Spirit Vision Films and highlighted the Olympic Discovery Trail from the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe to the Port Angeles Waterfront trail.

Spirit Vision Films is currently working on the fourth episode, Olympic National Park, Lake Crescent and the Sol Duc River Valley. It is near complete and should be aired this month.

Along the way we also created four videos featuring high-end real estate land, homes, and rentals here on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Also, working for the City of Port Angeles who contracted with PAPA to create eight videos showing the residents of Port Angeles how the city is working for them. Spirit Vision Films created two of the eight:

  • Public Works Winter Readiness
  • Port Angeles Fire Department and Operation Candy Cane

We also contributed aerial footage to several organizations including:

  • Peninsula College’s Pirates Soccer video.
  • Quileute Tribe’s Move to Higher Ground film.
  • We edited Kitsap County’s the Bucklin Hill Bridge Project, which received an award for their work on that project.

Finally, contracted by Clallam County Road Department, we started the long term McDonald Creek Bridge Project in July of last year, documenting the de-construction and re-construction of this long-awaited and needed bridge project on the Old Olympic Highway. The finished video and bridge should be completed by March of this year.

Without the Lord’s help, none of this would have been possible. Thank you so much!

And again, to all our clients who trusted Spirit Vision Film with their video needs, thank you! It was a very good year!

We are looking forward to what will come our way this year and to continue to serve our clients with support, creative abilities, and integrity for their video and photographic needs!



On the Road – The New Dungeness Light Station

Spirit Vision Films in association with PAPA TV (Peninsula Area Public Access TV) of Port Angeles, Washington, has created a series called On the Road, highlighting unique destinations around the North Olympic Peninsula.

The pilot episode is called the New Dungeness Light Station. We focus our attention on the Dungeness lighthouse, as well as the New Dungeness Light Station Association. This organization maintains and gives tours of the 160 year old lighthouse on the Dungeness Spit with their volunteers, board members, and lighthouse keeper program. All are located within the 775 acre Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, next to the Clallam County Dungeness Recreation Area campground, near Sequim, Washington.

Elaine Cochran, Joseph Bennett, Emily Enges my niece, and myself spent two days at the lighthouse interviewing the keepers, exploring and filming the lighthouse, and the many natural sights of the wildlife refuge. This is our efforts.

This film was grant-funded through the Clallam County Lodging Tax fund to promote tourism on the North Olympic Peninsula.
