The contract is awarded to Craven Studios and was based on a number of criteria, including but not limited to the budget, knowledge of the area, high quality sound mix, and the ability to have the final video “festival ready” and “showcase ready”.
Council also wants this year’s Gold Panning event to be included in the feature film.
In 2011, documentation of resident’s stories in video format was collected to capture and bring to life the history of Taylor. One year later, $10,000 of the initial $30,000 allotted was used for further filming of the Taylor Winter Olympics and Gold Panning.
After those events, a community consultation was held to determine the vision for the remainder of the project and filming was put on hold.
Carven Studios will now weave together the previous videos along with new footage to create a storyboard that will promote Taylor’s history, growth, and sense of community.
The completed documentary, which has a deadline of November 1, 2014, will be produced into a forty-five minute broadcast standard time frame, potentially being split into 4 – 5 minute segments that would be used on Facebook, Youtube and other outlets.
