Producer Director Duane Weed, owner DW Video & Multimedia, LLC in Howard City was recognized for his work on “Mackinaw, Michigan’s Tourist Destination,” in the 2013 DV Awards. DV Awards is an international competition recognizing outstanding achievement in digital video.
DW Video was contracted by Sygnifi Networks and Greg Troin to produce the Mackinaw community tourist video.
According to Troin “This was a very exciting project and part of the collaborative marketing initiative, championed by Dawn Edwards, Executive Director of the Mackinaw Chamber. The video truly showcases the many great reasons to visit the area. Duane did a super job capturing the essence of why the Mackinaw region is a must see.”
“This was an exciting video shoot for many reasons,” states Duane. “For one, this video was to Promote Michigan, which I truly have a passion for. And two was able to have my son; daughter and dad help with the on-location digital video along with media producer Frank Krywicki.”
When Mackinaw Chamber’s, Dawn Edwards heard of the award she commented that is great recognition for Duane’s many hours of hard work, (Exploring the Great Up North).” Edwards continues, “This movie evolved into a year round snapshot of the area regardless of weather and other filming challenges. It captured the desire to travel north, relax with the family, explore real history and discover the many area recreational and business opportunities in the Mackinaw City Area.”
