A newly-released video shows beauty of Yilan

Yilan City Office has recently released a video that had employed aerial photography to introduce the beauty of Yilan City and promote tourism. Yilan Mayor Chiang Tsung-yuan said the video revolves around the Yilan River, which is like a mother of the city that has given birth and nutrition to the development of this city. To promote Yilan City as a beautiful and good place to live, the city office in September last year began to make a plan for the video, Chiang said. The videography breaks away from traditional city videos that contain too much preaching and bragging, Chiang said. The video introduces cultural heritage of the city, including old temples, a legacy brick kiln, and the Museum of Yilan Government History. In addition, the video also touches on the good water quality in the city that has bred high quality rice, such as the rice that won the Ten Best Classic Rice Awards, and brewed high quality wine, such as the Old Red Wine produced by the Yi-lan Distillery. “Yilan City as seen from high above has turned out to be so beautiful!,” said director Lin Hung-cheng. The video is predicated on the river and then moves towards the intangible cultural level, he said, adding that tripods and stabilizers were seldom used during the filming, and sometimes hands were used to hold the camera when shooting alleys in the older part of the city to give viewers a feeling of being there. The city office said the video had been published in video websites and will soon be shown in public places in the hope that more people will see the good city and share what the city has to offer.
