Visit Buffalo Niagara has taken a page out of former Buffalo Bills Head Coach Marv Levy's playbook, premiering a new promotional video "Right Here, Right Now." VBN says it is meant to highlight "the natural beauty, civic vitality, entrepreneurial energy and reinvigorated sense of place found in Buffalo today."
Produced in cooperation with Paget Films, Larkin Development Group, 43 North, Invest Buffalo Niagara and the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, the time-lapse video shown Tuesday evening at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is "intended to resonate with current and former residents and inspire community pride."
It is also going to be used to appeal to the region's economic development agencies, real estate developers, media, meeting planners, tour group operators and workers relocating to the region.
Does the production accomplish its goal?
