If anyone out there has the same kind of feelings, let’s talk. We’re looking for someone with 2-3 years of PR loving and a degree in PR, communications or related field; someone who has experience in campaign planning, project management, and social media/digital marketing; someone who is comfortable working with clients, and can do all that with moxie.

As you may remember, earlier this year Drake Cooper and North by Northwest were casting a family from the Pacific Northwest for Adventures in Living — an online reality series to be developed for the Idaho Travel Council

Among the areas that they’ve either visited or are scheduled to visit:  Boise, Banks, the greater Island Park area, Sun Valley, Ketchum, Stanley, McCall, Hells Canyon, Lewiston, Coeur d’Alene, Wallace and Athol (Silverwood).

The full campaign is scheduled to launch in Spring 2010, complete with “Dedicated campaign website, complete with downloadable webisodes, podcasts, online maps and itineraries, e-coupons from statewide participants and communities and more.”  They’ve had some good press of the production, including coverage by the Associated Press, NPR, Idaho Mountain ExpressIdaho Business Review and more.
