New video promotes big doings in Little City

VERGENNES — A new three-minute video boosting Vergennes and its environs made its world premiere at the May 9 city council meeting.
Alderman and Vergennes Partnership President Renny Perry screened for the first time the new video designed to promote Vergennes and its surroundings to prospective visitors, residents and businesses.
Perry said the video, a year in the making and created at “a considerable discount” by Bristol’s Redbarn Productions Group, is now available for free at the partnership’s website to anyone who wants to use it to market the area for any reason, including business and employment recruiters and real estate agents. See the video here: www.vergennesdowntown.org/littlecity.
Particularly, he said, the video is designed to be social-media friendly.
“You have to do it the modern way. You have to do it on social media,” Perry said. “We’re really proud of this video. We hope people use it as much as they can.”
The video — titled “Welcome to Vergennes, VT. The little city with a big heart!” — includes shots of the city’s downtown, Otter Creek Basin and side streets; events such as Vergennes Day and the Little City 5K road race; businesses and restaurants; landmarks such as the Vergennes Opera House, city pool, and Bixby Library; and area attractions such as the Basin Harbor Club and Lake Champlain.
Interviewees include Friends of the Vergennes Opera House President Gerianne Smart and Alderman Jeff Fritz, who says he should have moved to the city decades ago. Vergennes native Matteo Palmer supplies an acoustic guitar soundtrack of original music. Perry said the partnership successfully raised all funds necessary for the project.
Mayor Michael Daniels gave the video two thumbs up.
“It is a great video, and it does a great job of selling our beautiful city.”
