The City of Edmonton has started it's "Everyone's Edmonton" campaign. This campaign is designed to give information regarding infill housing and to promote best construction practices where infill is involved. Point of View Media is proud to have been chosen by The City Of Edmonton to produce a series of videos to help with this campaign. Actually, it's technically two separate video series!
The first series focuses on "Infill Stories". These are stories of people living in, building, or living near infill houses in mature communities. This series consists of 6 videos in total and was a lot of fun to produce.
Here is a brief run down of the videos in the "Infill Stories" series, taken from The City of Edmonton infill website (video links are below):
