Online Video Series About McCauley
McCauley is about to become the subject of an Internet-based mini-series.
The McCauley Family Life Videography Project will promote the neighbourhood as a great place for families to move and for businesses to invest. The series of six vignettes of approximately 3-5 minutes in length will be posted on YouTube, and promoted through various social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter.
Each vignette will feature positive aspects of life in McCauley such as events, businesses, and dining, while profiling some of the families in the area as they discuss why they moved to the neighbourhood, what they like about life here, and related questions.
The McCauley Family Life Video Project is being made possible by a Revitalization grant to The Works International Visual Art Society, a cultural hub located in the McCauley community. Boyle McCauley News Editor Paula E. Kirman is the artistic force behind the project, and will be doing the bulk of the videography, editing, and online work. The project was Paula’s brainchild and she has been filming various things happening in the neighbourhood, as well as using social media to promote both the paper and the area, for a number of years.
Filming officially begins in February and families are being sought to take part. In particular, the project is seeking:
- Families with young children.
- Families from the Italian, Ukrainian, Asian, and Aboriginal communities, as well as any other cultural groups and interracial/intercultural/interfaith families.
- Non-traditional families (single parents; same-sex partners; grandparents raising grandchildren).
- Older singles and couples who have raised families in McCauley.
- Business owners who are having positive experiences in the area.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of the summer. Once the videos are ready, The Works will be hosting a screening event to celebrate.
