Lights, Camera, Action: C2C on the Big Screen

Coming soon to a theater near you – the Coast to Coast Connector trail in all its glory!  The FGTF is in the final stages of editing a video that will showcase the voices and images of the C2C from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean.You will recognize the stars who were instrumental in bringing the C2C trail to life like former Orange County Mayor Linda Chapin, former Orange County Commissioner Daisy Lynum, MetroPlan Orlando Executive Director Harry Barley, Mayor of St. Petersburg Rick Kriseman, and Mayor of Titusville Jim Tulley and more.

C2C Video Intro Still

Jamie Abbott, the videographer with Crash&Annie Productions, says filming this project “has literally changed my life.  The enthusiasm of everyone involved has been infectious.  I bought two trikes and have started riding every day so I will be ready to ride the C2C trail when complete!”

Personal health.  Safety.  Economic Development.  Tourism.  These are just a few of the ways the state of Florida and C2C users will benefit from connecting 275 miles of trails.  Touching on each of these, the video is “going to be a powerful resource for conveying the value and beauty of a coast to coast trail,” comments Joe Beckham, FGTF Board Member.

The 20-minute video will be shown at the C2C Summit October 1 and then released to the public.  If you are unable to attend the Summit, be sure to check the next C2C newsletter for the video link.
