St. Pete Clearwater: A Scenic Journey
Location Scouting book, illustrating the beauty of St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Florida
One of the principle objectives of a County Film Commission is to promote and market the municipalities within its county. One way is by demonstrating value as a destination for film and television production. The idea behind the animation was to highlight the 24 cities within Pinellas County, Florida, by illustrating the beauty and diversity of the various locations by animating our glossy, professional photographs cut to upbeat and engaging music to entice location scouts, working for film and television production companies to consider filming in Pinellas County.
The 9-minute video is filled with stunning landscape and architectural photographs taken by area photographers and sheds light on the wonderful history of Pinellas County, Florida. This project was commissioned by Visit St. Pete/Clearwater’s Film Commission, a Pinellas County government office.
"Declan did an amazing job animating the coffe table style book, and I use this video quite a bit when promoting the area to local and outside filmmakers. It just demonstrates Declan's ability to take an already awesome project one step further." - Tony A. Film Commissioner
