We’ve all had to make a lot of changes in 2020. I have been working with the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce for the last five years. CEO Lori Pepenella has always been a believer in my talents and we have worked together on video content that shows just how amazing the LBI Region is through imagery that no one had before captured and solid storytelling.

With so many people spending more time in their second homes during the pandemic, the Chamber is seeking to help them find local businesses to help with full time living or planning for the holidays. I directed this video by coming up with the idea and having Oak Leaf Media repurpose some content we had shot for the Chamber and Just Beneath the Surface. I wrote this script and coached Samantha Cisternas in reading through it.

The new campaign is called “Eat, Drink & Buy LBI,” and we’re seeing how we can influence people to shop local and support our independent businesses.

Special thanks to my friends at Bellarine Theatre Company for being such great actors.
