Eric González will be spending his summer filming a series of short clips for Tourism Rossland. González was hired using a Canada Summer Jobs Grant.

He will be making nine clips called ‘webisodes’ and they will be less than two minutes in length. Each webisode is meant to showcase a different summer activity.

The nine themes include, the Gold Fever Follies, the Rossland Museum, the Heritage Walking Tour, Frisbee Golf, Columbia Gardens Winery, Boutique shopping, dining and nightlife, Rossland artists and road biking.

Currently, González is working on the both the boutique shopping and road biking videos.

“I am planning to have the first one released July 1 and then every week after that a new video,” said González in an interview this past Sunday.

Videos were something that he was always been interested in and the teachers at J. Lloyd Crowe gave him the opportunity to expand on that.

“I wanted to learn more about it…I just started making my own videos,” said González. His passion and talent from then on simply shone through.

Since his first videos in 2010, González has made promotional videos for the City of Trail such as Silver City Days; as well as several real estate videos.

Over the past six months he has also been working with Red Mountain to create a video documenting the new expansion. This video will be released in the fall of 2014.

During the summer González will be focusing on Tourism Rossland’s webisodes.The short clips will be posted on YouTube and linked to Rossland’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

In the fall, González will be heading to the University of Calgary pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business. He hopes to later specialize in marketing.

However, his passion for film is here to stay; “I don’t have any intention to stop doing it,” said González.
