Video Love Notes to Vancouver

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This week Tourism Vancouver launched the world’s first destination-based music video the world’s first professionally produced destination film in music video format. It features the music of Reid Hendry and Adam Bailie of Watasun who were once buskers on Granville.

A few days before that video was launched, Thomas Stratmann of Germany emailed me a video he took while living in Vancouver during an internship. “I did an internship at cause+affect in Vancouver last year and enjoyed the amazing spirit of this beautiful town,” he told me by email. “The little movie is the official music video of The Very First Teenager, an electro DJ duo from Hamburg.”

There’s something about Vancouver that makes people want to write songs and make movies about its brilliance — both its gritty and glossy sides. For more Vancouver tribute videos check out my archives for video roundups including Dear Vancouver, Top Vancouver Videos of 2010, Vancouver Video Collection, Vancouver Time Lapse Videos, Vancouver Time Lapse Videos Part Two, and a Vancouver 125 Video Roundup.

    “Never too hot too cold, neither, for we have the ocean and beauty’s what we see all the time…”
