Dungeness Recreation Area

This is the third film that Spirit Vision Films created for Clallam County Parks to highlight three different county parks …. Salt Creek Recreation Area, Camp David Jr., and the Dungeness Recreation Area.

Dungeness Recreation Area is actually two designations in one. The beautiful Dungeness Recreation Area and the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge that encompasses the Dungeness Spit.

Check out this beautiful county park as well as a quick snapshot of the Port Williams County Park, just 10-miles east of the Dungeness Recreation Area.

Check out the details in the film’s description section. Enjoy!

Camp David Jr County Park

This is the second video created by Spirit Vision Films for the Clallam County Parks to highlight their beautiful county parks.

Camp David Jr. county park is about 30 miles west of Port Angeles, Washington situated right on the beautiful Lake Crescent, in the Olympic National Park.

This park features multiple cabins and is geared toward the group, educational or recreational retreat, reunions, gatherings, or weddings.

Check out the details in the description section of the film. Hope you enjoy!

 

Salt Creek Recreation Area

Spirit Vision Films was hired by Clallam County Parks to create three 2-minute videos highlighting three county parks .. Salt Creek Recreation Area, Camp David Jr., and Dungeness Recreation Area.

With the CV19 delays, it took almost a year to complete the three. Yesterday, we finished the last one and now look to share these videos with you!

The first is Salt Creek Recreation Area. The description on the video will tell you all you need to know about this incredible place right here on the North Olympic Peninsula!

So, take a journey to Salt Creek Recreation Area and enjoy where the area residents go to unwind!

THE LEGACY PROJECT

Spirit Vision Films has just signed a contract with the Northwest Cooperative Development Center in Olympia, Washington to create 8 training video modules for their upcoming Legacy Project.

This project is focused on the baby boom generation that includes at least seven million owners of privately held businesses, many of whom will want to sell or liquidate their businesses in the next two decades.

One succession strategy is for small business owners to sell their businesses to their employees by converting to a worker-cooperative ownership model. This model gives owners a viable exit strategy, offers opportunities for rural workers to retain their jobs, and allows for retention of local ownership.

The modules will give a step by step instruction on how this is accomplished.

The filming starts in the middle of May and the modules should be available by the middle of June. Should be fun!

The NWCDC’s website is http://www.nwcdc.coop for more information and will be the home of their new modules. Check them out.

McDonald Creek Bridge Replacement Project

The Old Olympic Highway at the McDonald Creek Bridge was closed on July 10th, 2017 for a complete replacement of the earthquake prone and functionally obsolete bridge built in 1957.

Spirit Vision Films was contracted to document the progress of the bridge deconstruction and the new bridge’s construction by the Orion Marine Group, awarded to them by the Clallam County Road Department.

Whereas, working with the City of Port Angeles, we produced a video for them in 14 days, the Clallam County bridge project lasted nearly 10 month.

The final video is made up of mostly aerial clips that we flew around the project, but we used a time-lapse GoPro, and our Canon cinema camera to capture the progression as well.

But today both the bridge and the video are complete and we at SVF’s could not be happier!

If you have never seen a bridge being constructed, this video is for you! Watch from the very beginning until the bridge’s dedication on April 28th, to the opening three days later on May 1st, 2018.

We hope you enjoy it!

 

Best of the Northwest Awards

Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the Alliance for Community Media’s, Best of the Northwest Awards in Portland this weekend.

I had entered three of our films in this year’s festival that represents Alaska, Alberta, Canada, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, Idaho and of course Washington. I knew that the competition would be great. And it was.

One of the three films made it to the finalist level …. the On the Road episode, the Olympic Discovery Trail. It was the only one I entered twice. Once in the Documentary and once in the Informative Feature category. I actually did not know which one was accepted as a finalist…. until this weekend. The ODT was accepted in BOTH categories as finalist! We only had one other film to compete against in each category. So, I thought our chances were good to nab at least one of these prestigious awards.

Imagine my shock and surprise when I found out that the Olympic Discovery Trial won BOTH categories in this festival. Best documentary and best informative feature.

To say that we at Spirit Vision Films and PAPA TV in Port Angeles are just a little excited would be an understatement! We are thrilled that this film has won, not only for Spirit Vision Films, but the whole of the North Olympic Peninsula. This film will draw attention to us here. We are very thrilled about this! My narrator, Elaine Cochran had a lot to do with these awards. So, thank you so much Elaine. I couldn’t have done it without you!

I hope you can take some time and check the film out yourself …. especially if you are a hike or biker. Enjoy!

The Best of the Northwest Award Finalist

Working with PAPA TV for the last two years has given us the opportunity to produce some great video. In this case, the On the Road series. Over the course of the last year we have produced four episodes.

I entered three different films, including one of the episodes of the OTR series that have aired on PAPA TV in the last year to the Best of the Northwest Awards this year. The Alliance for Community Media which represents Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Oregon, Wyoming, and Washington community media and PEG (Public, Education, and Government) television stations hosts the annual event and invites these stations to enter their best productions in various categories.

Spirit Vision Films, along with PAPA TV’s On the Road – Olympic Discovery Trail was picked as a finalist in the Informative Feature category. Very cool!

As such, we will be attending the awards ceremony in Portland, Oregon on April 27th to see where we end up in the competition. We at PAPA TV and Spirit Vision Films are extremely excited to be even considered as a finalist in this very competitive awards ceremony. Stay tuned!

OFFICIAL SELECTION - Best of the Northwest Awards - 2018

 

Here is our entry:

Aerial Bluff Survey

I love using our UAV for filming documentaries. It adds an element that can’t be had with ground based videography.

But UAVs have many different applications other than just film making. For instance, using the UAV to survey bluff erosion is so helpful when looking back at your bluff to see what you can’t see in many cases of high bluff waterfront property.

Such is the case with this canyon and bluff near Port Angeles, Washington. There is obvious erosion happening all over this canyon. You could not see the bottom of the canyon while standing on the edge or the undercut working it’s way back toward the road. There is no access from the beach, other than by boat, either. That is why using a UAV to look back at the bluff is so beneficial and much, much safer!

Call us for a free estimate if you are curious about the face of your high bank waterfront.

February Update Video for the McDonald Creek Bridge Project

Orion Marine Group continues to move along on the McDonald Creek Bridge replacement project with the pouring of the concrete bridge deck. Check out the progress that has occurred since the last update.

Completion of the project is projected to be around mid-March, weather depending.
