The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) has officially released its introductory video The Region of BC’s Best to the public after it was premiered at the Board of Directors meeting February 18. The video can be seen on the TNRD website, tnrd.ca, on the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission (TNFC) YouTube channel, or the TNFC website, FilmThompsonNicola.com. “The TNRD is a tremendously diverse area. The intent of the video is to showcase the incredible and unique attributes of the region,” said John Ranta, TNRD Chair. “We hope the public will enjoy the video and learn more about the Thompson-Nicola Region, which we believe is The Region of BC’s Best.” The Film Commission was tasked with producing the vignette and Kamloops’ Joy Factory Films filmed and edited the video. “We drew on the resources of TNRD economic and tourism agencies, First Nations, production companies and filmmakers, and all types of businesses for information, footage and advice,” said Victoria Weller, TNFC Film Commissioner.
The video took more than a year to produce in order to acquire footage from all seasons and in all landscapes, such as the Regional District’s worldrenowned grasslands, deserts and mountains. Agriculture, natural resources, education, technology, transportation, health care, tourism, and culture provide the framework in which the video presents the region.
