New Video To Highlight Tourism Industry On The Coast

A new 30-minute video will highlight the beauty of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Chris Snyder and Sky River Productions are producing the video. Originally, Snyder's plan was to make a tape for local realtors. But as he talked with potential sponsors, he found out a video showcasing tourism would be more beneficial for the area.

"What we found out in talking with the tourism industry is that a lot of people believe that if visitors know everything there was to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, if they knew it as well as we knew it, that they would stay here longer. And staying here longer translates to more money for them," Snyder said.

The "Destination Gulf Coast" video should be released in October.
