A Relaxing Escape in the Rockies

Canmore, Alberta is one of the most beautiful areas in North America, perhaps the world. Set in the Rocky Mountains it has all the modern amenities, but the quaintness of a small mountain town. Bellstar Hotels & Resorts brought us in to produce a set of videos, 10 in all, to use across their digital platforms. Our mission was to produce beautiful overall productions for their Grande Rockies and Solara Resorts, but also highlight the dining, corporate, summer and winter activities, and relaxing spa services.

We wanted to create a feeling of what it would be like to be there. Through music, moving shots, and a great set of actors to convey the emotional moments. It was important for us to show what it’s really like to stay, eat, relax, and explore at these beautiful resorts.

“There’s something awe inspiring and incredibly powerful when you look up at the Rocky Mountains, breathe that air, and realize just how small we really are. This project allowed us to work with some really talented people and in the shadow of this vast, beautiful setting, you quickly come to appreciate the effort and talent from these artists both in front and behind the camera.”
