Content Strategy: This engaging video series highlights Virginia-based personalities who possess the talent and opportunities that open doors to the world stage (remote locales, big-city notoriety, reality television, etc.), but choose to make Virginia their home. Each episode focuses on a different personality while each season focuses on a different theme.
Season one focuses on Trevor Frost, a photographer and filmmaker who travels around the world, capturing the untamed beauty of wildlife and the landscapes they inhabit. His adventurous spirit has led him to the most untouched corners of the planet, from South American rainforests to the Serengeti, but his love for Virginia always brings him back to rediscover the diverse landscapes of his home.
Season two features three unique stories from chefs around the Commonwealth. From a Pakistani-Appalachian food truck in Abingdon to an advertising executive turned pie baker for the President, it dives into Virginia’s unique culinary scene as we explore their backgrounds, what prompted them to lay roots in Virginia, and highlight the ways they’ve embraced and even revitalized their communities.
