Oct 21, 2010 (02:10 PM EDT)


GREAT FALLS, Va., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Knowlera Media, the leading creator of expert-driven, lifestyle-focused video content for Web and broadcast distribution, and Destination DC, the official convention and tourism corporation for the nation's capital, have joined forces to create a comprehensive series of ten destination videos on Washington, DC.

This series of videos will provide a broad range of tips and information for visitors to the nation's capital including overviews of the city, neighborhoods, lodging, restaurants, attractions, activities, shopping, nightlife, and more.  In addition to the ten city guides, hundreds of additional videos are being created to provide visitors with an in-depth look at individual must-see attractions, restaurants, hotels and shops. Designed to provide visitors and residents with all the information they need to plan a great day or vacation in the nation's capital, this one-of-a-kind video collection will reside on washington.org and be distributed through Knowlera Media's vast syndication network which includes both major portals and hundreds of topic-specific sites across the Web.  

For Knowlera Media, this project is one of many extensive collections of videos covering most of the major destinations in the US.

"Videos inspire travelers in a way that you cannot match in print media alone.  By tapping into Knowlera's media production expertise and powerful distribution network, we can serve up those compelling visuals and experiences to bigger audiences and to travelers that we may not be able to  connect with through traditional media channels, "  said Elliott Ferguson, President and CEO, Destination, DC.

"Working with Destination DC is a distinct advantage given their deep knowledge on everything that makes Washington, D.C. such a great place to visit," said Will Jerro, co-founder and COO, Knowlera Media. "They have their finger on the pulse of the city and their unique insight is invaluable given the comprehensive nature and scope of these videos."

Shooting in Washington, D.C. is already underway, with the full video series expected to be completed as soon as next month.
