ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Economic Development Council has released a new video showcasing the highlights of our city and community.

"We Are Albany," brings viewers inside the life of an Albany resident.  It was all shot with an iPhone 5S at over a hundred locations and takes place over a day and a half. 

The EDC President said the two minute video quickly got over a thousand views after it was shared this morning.  He said it could help make the city more marketable.

"A lot of times people talk about, you know, there's nothing to do here.  There's no excitement, there's nothing going on," said Ted Clem, EDC President.  "That's not the case, and I think this video clearly shows we have a lot to be proud of.  It's a great way we can promote our community to outsiders."

Clem said this video is just the beginning of a new marketing and branding campaign.  He says the EDC wants to get the community involved, and other videos will be released in the future.
