City of Frederick Debuts New Video, “Work Where There’s Room to Play,” During August 21, 2015 Movie Night on the Creek

Frederick, MD - August 19, 2015: The City of Frederick Department of Economic Development’s new three minute video, "Work Where There's Room to Play," will debut on Friday, August 21, 2015 at Downtown Frederick Partnership's "Movie Night on the Creek" event. The film highlights the benefits of working in Frederick, Maryland. Gates open at 7 p.m. and guests should plan to arrive by 8 p.m. to ensure they can preview the video. Admission is free and guests must be over 21 for entry.

The project was developed after Tech Frederick, a Frederick area non-profit that advocates for the local IT industry, indicated recruiting top talent to Frederick was a priority. While the video was developed with IT professionals in mind, any Frederick area business can use it in coordination with their recruitment efforts.

"There are many advantages to working in Frederick," said Richard Griffin, Director of Economic Development for The City of Frederick. "This three-minute video features Frederick's great downtown, the arts, amenities, and quality of life we all know and love. It shows that Frederick offers a great place to play when people get off of work."

Local talent featured in the film included narrator, Ashley Miles, local musician and Frederick resident; Jeanne and Eric Rhodes, Frederick residents; Steve Ellis, recruiter for local software development company Regent Education; and Justin Saltzman, insurance agent and community volunteer. They volunteered their time to appear in the film.

Local company Digital Bard produced the film with additional film footage courtesy of Visit Frederick, Downtown Frederick Partnership, and drone footage by Mike Purks.
The film will be shared digitally on on the evening of August 21, 2015 after the live debut.

Movie Night on the Creek is on Friday, August 21, 2015 at the Carroll Creek Amphitheater in Downtown Frederick, Maryland. Pre-show entertainment will begin when the gates open at 7:00 p.m. The feature presentation, Interstellar, will begin at 8:30 p.m. Admission is FREE and guests must be over 21 for entry. More info:
