November 20, 2017
Three videos display Oregon’s unique mix of outdoor adventure opportunities
PORTLAND, Ore. –Nov. 20, 2017) – Outdoor adventure media startup Outdoor Project has launched a new video series in collaboration with Travel Oregon, Oregon State Parks and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The series, produced by Outdoor Project and Outlive Creative, an Oregon video production company, can be found at https://www.outdoorproject.com/blog-news/oregon-fall-adventures.
The first video in the three-part series, titled “Oregon Fall Adventures” was released on Oct. 30, 2017. Featuring inspiring fall footage, from catching the changing colors of fall foliage in Oregon’s High Desert and Cascade Foothills to mountain biking near Bend, elk viewing in the Coast Range, and crabbing on the Oregon coast, viewers learn how to make the most of fall in Oregon. Adventure guides for the areas covered in the video are available online along with the video.
“Travel Oregon and Outdoor Project are natural partners to provide all the information visitors need to inspire and plan their trip,” said Kevin Wright, VP of Tourism Marketing for Travel Oregon. “While it’s great to share beautiful images of Oregon — and there are plenty of opportunities for that — we can really make an impact with content that gives both a sense of place and practical information about how to access Oregon’s outdoors.”
“Our vision at Travel Oregon is to improve the lives of all Oregonians through strong, sustainable local communities,” said Todd Davidson, Travel Oregon CEO. “When people are inspired to get outdoors and immerse themselves in the natural splendor of Oregon, jobs are created, communities thrive and lives are transformed. By partnering with Outdoor Project, we will build upon Oregon’s $11.3 billion tourism industry and inspire residents and visitors to explore and recreate in this special place we call home.”
Aron Bosworth, Chief Content Officer at Outdoor Project who led the video production effort, shared his excitement upon releasing the first of three videos, “We’re thrilled to launch this series with Travel Oregon, Outlive Creative, Oregon State Parks and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Working with these stakeholders to merge inspirational video content with practical information guides helps make these activities more accessible, connecting people on a deeper level with Oregon’s outdoors and nature in general. This hits at the core of Outdoor Project and what this partnership is all about.”
The next two videos in the three-part series will be released in the coming months. These will continue to highlight the amazing opportunities to enjoy Oregon’s outdoors. The next video will show off the unique public access qualities of the Oregon coast, and “Let’s Go Camping” will feature the diversity of state park camping options and related activities and programs offered by Oregon State Parks.
