'The Oregon Coast: A Winter Odyssey' new video Travel Oregon hopes goes viral – OregonLive.com
A new video was released online today, Jan. 28, with publicity designed to make it go “viral.”
Hype aside, the subject, which is the Oregon coast, is most likely to get the job done, if indeed it happens.
The five-minute video shows the convergence of nature and culture in a captivating time-lapse film. John Waller and Ben Canales of Uncage the Soul produced the film as a promotional tool to encourage travelers to embark on adventures along the Oregon coast in the off-season winter months.
“I’ve spent a lifetime exploring Oregon, but I’m still making new discoveries along the coastline,” Waller said in a statement released with the announcement of the video. “This project reacquainted me with my own backyard and reminded me that a world class destination with exceptional diversity is only a short drive away.”
Waller and Canales filmed “The Oregon Coast: A Winter Odyssey” while visiting the distinct north, central and southern regions of the coastline over the past year, including dozens of well known but also secluded locations.
Oregon’s coast is often called “The People’s Coast” because of a state law that the entire coast to the high tide line is open to everyone to explore all 363 highway miles. The goal of the film is to bring more travelers to the Oregon coast by sharing its beauty through a collection of time-lapse, aerial and high-speed footage.
An orchestral soundtrack original composition by Portland musician Peter Bosack accompanies the film.
The video is presented here, but can also be seen at uncagethesoul.com, at vimeo.com/117670644, and through facebook.com (uncagethesoulproductions and traveloregon).
