A video to sell Portland. Tough. If you are familiar with the region, you know what an easy sell it is. Ohhh, but try condensing it into a 3:00-4:00 minute video. Sockeye has deep Portland roots—so it was a labor of love. After 15 months of shooting at countless locations, and 80 hours of footage they clearly left a lot on the cutting room floor.
The goal was to show the evolution of Portland. Sure people know it is green, western and outdoorsy.
