The Making Of A Colorado Tourism Video

What do you do when the product you are trying to sell is an entire state? When that state is Colorado, it's not hard to find majestic scenery to showcase the state in it's grandeur. Director Tim Kemple, in collaboration with Forge Motion and Karsh/Hagan, crafted a series of spots for the state of Colorado, all being set to music by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. This making-of video takes you through their process of crafting these ads. Click on the full post for a few of the final commercials.

Hey that's where I live! 

As a Colorado resident, I now feel Incredibly lazy. Thanks Colorado! I love theses videos and it's great to see the behind the scenes. Thanks for sharing.

Great videos! Makes me want to make one for Minnesota! 


Pretty sure I saw a RED and a Hasselblad in there...

Living in Colorado is one big vacation!

I don't always shoot multithousand dollar cameras.. But when I do, I upload the finished product in 480p on Youtube

Where's all the fire?

so what exactly is Colorado promoting ? I'm from a small country in Europe which is living off from tourism and would like to know what exactly are these videos trying to promote since the scenes are all the same, there are no people and only a lake, a mountain, and a bunch of other nature details. Tnx :)
