TimTV: Unsung Heroes

Getting folks engaged and motivated to participate in municipal politics can be tough. As Halifax Regional Municipality Councillor for Bedford, Tim Outhit has embraced new media as a powerful channel for two-way communication with constituents.

As a candidate, Tim used web video as a way to make a personal connection with voters and explain his positions on several key issues. TimTV, produced by Ketchup Films, was the result: a running web documentary series featuring the candidate and his staff. One of the most popular webisodes was called Unsung Heroes, and featured volunteer Eugene Belyea.
