“That’s My City” Boulder Theme Song by Jeff and Paige
Boulder, Colorado, February 9th 2015 — TrailRidge REALTORS love living life in Boulder County and want to share the fun with you this Valentine’s weekend! The goal of the project is to highlight the things we love most as residents and parents throughout beautiful Boulder County. This passion inspired the creation of Boulder’s new theme song, “That’s My City!”
This project started with a dream in fall of 2014 when Leanne Goff had a vision to create a theme song that resonated with the beauty and fun that Boulder shares with its citizens and especially families. The singers that Leanne was looking for needed to be full of the joy that permeates our community, especially through the eyes of children.
The answer was clear – Jeff and Paige! They are famous in Boulder for their fun-loving perspective and environmentally conscious songs geared towards children. When Leanne contacted Jeff and Paige she found that they had always had it in the back of their minds to do a theme song for Boulder and now they had a reason to make it happen!
With a song in place the newly formed team needed a videographer to transform the melody into pictures. The goal was to embody the energy of Jeff and Paige with the essence of Boulder’s beauty. Michael Travers, owner of hbar films, took the job to heart when creating the visuals. As a CU graduate Michael has a long-term love with our community and intimate knowledge about why we all love Boulder.
Together this team of artists, videographers, musicians and visionaries came to the table with ideas on what they wanted to feature about life in Boulder Colorado. Everyone was in agreement that the video should focus on the local farms in our community including the farmers’ market, athletics and yoga as well as the Pearl Street pedestrian mall.
The first stop for the crew was to Sunbeam Farms. This was one of their favorite days because the entire crew loves what this local CSA stands for. Their philosophy is that locally grown is healthy for the body and soul. Complementing the local farm, the second shoot was at the Boulder Farmers Market where many of the vendors and even City Council Member George Karakehian made an appearance!
After the shoot at the Farmer’s Market, the band of artists were invited to the grand opening week of The Mama’Hood Yoga Studio in Boulder. Children and their parents came out for an afternoon of play and yoga with Jeff and Paige. There was kirtan and chanting with the children as well as playful poses that kept everyone giggling.
A video about Boulder would only be complete with a winter shoot in the North Boulder Park while people passing by were Nordic skiing. It was a day when everyone played in the snow, had snowball fights and generally carried on while people sailed past with their cross country skis.
After the winter snows with the warming temperatures of spring, the film crew along with Jeff and Paige went to the Pearl Street Mall. This section of the video features the Tebo Train as well as the Dushanbe Teahouse. Getting Jeff and Paige onto the Tebo Train was one of Leanne’s biggest goals for the shoot. This kid-friendly activity cruises up and down the pedestrian mall through the warmer months and is super fun for kids of all ages. (As you can see, Leanne is a big kid at heart!)
Being the cornerstone of our community, the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) is highlighted in the film. There are beautiful architectural shots of campus, as well as images of where big kids play in research lab! Along with the higher education studies comes the school spirit as well. With the blessing of Associate Athletic Directors David Plati and Lance Carl as well as well as CU’s Athletic Director Rick George permission was granted for a very special appearance in the video from one undeniable CU Super Star in our community!
To find out who the special guest is and to experience the video as a whole, you will need to either RSVP to the premiere party that is being held at the Boedecker Theater in the Dairy, or check out the video online. The release date is just in time for Valentine’s Day this Saturday February 13th at www.WhyWeLoveBoulder.com.
