Commercial Shoot for Hike to Health

[gallery link="file" order="DESC"] A group of us went hiking today at Chimney Rock to film a commercial for our next Hike to Health to take place on Saturday, Oct. 23at Chimney Rock located at Chimney Rock State Park.  We wanted to give you a behind the scenes sneak peak at a few of the shots you will see in the commercial, and also a look at some of the views you will be able to enjoy if you register for Hike to Health. Filming the commercial was videographer, Ben, with The Obsidian Collective, located on Main Street in Hendersonville.  We had a few extras join us as the commercial talent, including two furry friends, Bear and Olive.  Talent also included Tiffany, Rick, Rob, Dale, Ester and myself.  Ben filmed our group hiking the Hickory Nut Falls trail at Chimney Rock up to the base of Hickory Nut Falls. Ben collected enough footage for at least a five minute television ad, but unfortunately our commercial won't be quite that long.  In the next couple of days, I will go to the Obsidian Collective and record the voice-over for the commercial.  Be sure to check out the blog in the next couple of weeks when we post the commercial, and be sure to watch for our ads on your local television stations and in the newspaper! Enjoy the photos from the commercial shoot, it was a beautiful morning for a hike.  We hope you will join us for the next Hike to Health on October 23.  Registration opens today!  Call 1-866-790-WELL to register. -L
