Yukon promotes location filming with webisode trailer in New York’s Times Square
Yukon has launched a new promotional web series for regional location filming, with a trailer screening in Times Square until the end of March 2011. In a fictional dramatic story available on the Yukonic website, two filmmakers travel across Yukon searching for gold to fund a film project.
Jim Kenyon, Yukon’s Economic Development Minister, said: “The webisode series highlights Yukon's spectacular wilderness and premier snow locations, as well as the many advantages of filming in Yukon. The Yukonic webisode series is an effective way of reaching filmmakers around the world and Times Square offers a location resulting in 1.5 million impressions per day in the centre of New York's television and theatre district.”
