My friend Amanda Rogers, Owner and Executive Manager of RPP Productions has been producing informative and engaging travel videos on her website, Travel the Local Way since 2010.
Similar to my ‘Neighborhoods of New York’ videos I shot and edited with Dan DiNicola of WRGB-TV, the Local Way Guides™ is a series for the traveler searching for the most “authentic” experience as seen through the eyes of a local.
The episodes currently available from their website include Paris, Dublin and, of course, New York City. Episode 1 includes discovery of the Red Hook neighborhood including the Waterfront Museum, Fort Defiance, the Brooklyn Collective, the Lobster Pound, the Community Farm and select restaurants with fabulous chefs.
The videos are short and sweet (no more than 2-minutes) with catchy music beds and creative editing. The hosts are deeply local natives who are also professional writers of travel books, blogs, manuals and magazines. The Local Way website includes links to purchase those reads in the “Local Way” recommendations.
Lets hope Rogers finds a way of crafting more “Local Way Guides” on future cities.
