Two videos that celebrate Fresno in divergent ways were shown earlier this week at the gathering for Mayor Ashley Swearengin’s State of the City speech. We’re sharing them here.
The first is a playful, upbeat piece that combines city scenery, dancers (including da mayor) and Justin Timberlake’s ubiquitous “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” (Seriously. Everyone. Is making videos. To this. Song.) Cheers to Top Hand Media, which produced the video for the city.
The second video is a dreamlike view of Fresno, with great drone footage plus narration by a child quoting a Walt Whitman poem. Beautiful work by Johnny Soto.
