The TDC unveiled its latest marketing endeavor recently – a seven-part web series of How to Forgotten Coast Like a Local. The first episode “Museums” premiered on Dec. 17. The third episode which features Fishing on the Forgotten Coast will launch Friday, Jan. 14th, new episodes will air every Friday at 5:00 pm for the next four weeks.
“We wanted to highlight different areas of the county, but we wanted to take a much different approach than many other tourism information videos”, said John Solomon, Franklin County TDC Director. “We thought outside the box and felt that laughter being the best medicine would be the perfect approach.” “The series takes you to all ends of the Forgotten Coast, touching on some of the unknown aspects of the area,” Solomon adds. “The idea is to tell the story of the many things to see and do in Franklin County in a way that’s entertaining and funny.”
The web series is narrated by colorful Captain Finn as he takes you on a well-informed tour of the Forgotten Coast with a more lighthearted perspective. Join him as he traverses Tate’s Hell swamp, tours the Forgotten Coast from above, visits local museums & lighthouses, and more. The episodes range from 7 to 10 minutes in length.
