City of Prescott Public Affairs productions receive Access 13 honors
PRESCOTT - Two projects of the City of Prescott's public affairs office received honors at the Access 13 channel's recent awards banquet.
The city's "Live+Work+Play Prescott" project received the award for best program in the government category, and the "Prescott Today" community service series received the Award of Excellence.
Public Affairs Director Kim Kapin, producer of both programs, noted that the Prescott Today show aims to give viewers insight into city programs and policies, as well as showcasing individuals and organizations that have a positive impact on the community.
The vision for the Live+Work+Play Prescott short film, Kapin said, was "to capture Prescott's mix of unique qualities in support of the city's tourism and economic development marketing efforts."
The short film has received about 20,000 views on the various YouTube channels in just five months, Kapin added.
He credited the combination of a "top-notch production staff," including cinematographer Bruce Dorn and editor Cadu Medina, and the recognizable talent for the success of both programs.
"When you have well presented content and known personalities like local celebrities Toni Tennille for Live+Work+Play and city councilman and talk show host Steve Blair for Prescott Today, it adds a level of viewer attraction that elevates the programming," Kapin said.
Prescott Today is available for viewing on Access 13's Video on Demand at http://access13.pegcentral.com/, and Live+Work+Play Prescott is available for viewing at the Prescott Tourism office's website at www.visit-prescott.com.
