Vermont Tourism Ad: YouTube Comedy Week

Lake Champlain


A top vacation spot, the Green Mountain state is home to the von Trapp Family Lodge, Smuggler’s Notch ski resort, and Ben & Jerry’s; and leads per capita in covered bridges, maple syrup and cheddar cheese. A bicycling tour through the fall foliage should be a top five item on everyone’s buck list. Dedicate at least two days on the itinerary to explore Burlington — visit Church Street, American Flatbread, Penny Cluse Cafe and the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. Oh, and there might be a monster lurking in Lake Champlain.


Enjoy YouTube Comedy Week.

BtoB Magazine: Elements of a Great Story

Usually the first question I ask when I’m preparing to produce a corporate video is “Can we film this in Burlington, Vermont?”  It’s a beautiful location, especially August through October.  But on our recent trip, the temperature on the lake with the windchill was minus 40.  Communication is challenging when your jaw is frozen shut.

Frozen Lake Champlain

Stalling so we could stay indoors a little longer, Steve Shepard and I had a chat with Ann Handley about corporate storytelling.  It’s featured in BtoB Magazine this week.


Plan to shoot your next video there, and schedule stops at Ben & Jerry’s ice cream factory, ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, and American Flatbread. But keep an eye out for the lake monster.

Mad Science: Making Water Smarter

John Cohn, of Discovery Channel’s “The Colony” and I filmed our third Mad Science episode in the dead of winter, on Lake Champlain, in an unstable canoe.  Maybe not the brightest idea.  But it was a blast.
