City of Hamilton

Broadcast Commercial Series

Hamilton is a city known for industry. But spend a little time within our borders and you’ll find there’s much more to this community than that.

So when the City of Hamilton approached us to produce a series of broadcast commercial spots highlighting the lesser known lifestyle benefits of living in #HamOnt.. we were thrilled. Thrilled at the opportunity to show you the city through our eyes. From rural charms and outdoor adventures to world class restaurants, arts and culture – these spots are our homage to the city we call home.

We filmed these spots over three days in a variety of Hamilton hotspots – from James Street to Cootes Paradise and everywhere in between. Featured are local farms, fashion designers, fitness enthusiasts, chefs and their fanbase of foodies. Chances are good you know someone in each frame.

Many thanks to the City of Hamilton, Tourism Hamilton and Hamilton Economic Development for bringing us aboard this project!

Special thanks to location providers (and amazing Hamilton restaurants!) Mezcal, Aberdeen Tavern, Nellie James Too and to intrepid foodie Chanry Thach!!

Arts & Culture spot shoutouts: Dave Brennan, Hamilton Arts Awards, Max @ True Hamiltonian, Angela DeMontigny of DeMontigny Boutique!
