Tripepi Smith has delivered the first-ever State of the City Video for the City of Murrieta. The video debuted on July 24 at Mayor Jonathan Ingram’s State of the City address. The 19-minute video features over a dozen interviews of City employees and Murrieta community members to give the viewers a taste of the good life in Murrieta.
The City of Murrieta is located in the southwestern region of Riverside County with a population of 112,000 residents. Murrieta’s economy has grown immensely in the last 20 years and is now home to companies like Southern California Permanente Medical Group, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Southwest Healthcare and Cryoquip.
“Murrieta has a lot of progress to report, from new infrastructure investments, to innovative public safety and a growing healthcare sector. Our community has seen a lot of growth, yet maintains a commitment to providing high-quality, economical, responsive services to our residents,” said Kim Summers, City Manager of the City of Murrieta. “Tripepi Smith guided our team through the storytelling process, capturing the high quality of life we have here in Murrieta, and the resulting video is a product that our whole community can be proud of. The Tripepi team was an excellent partner with the City in executing this project.”
The project, led by Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith and Business Analyst Melanie James, involved a detailed script process, interviews with 20 people over two days and additional b-roll shoots to capture a variety of locations in Murrieta, including parks, healthcare centers, schools, businesses and public safety buildings. Videographers Eric Lowy and Angel Ruiz were key in capturing the City’s esteemed quality of life. The video was also supplemented by Murrieta’s large photo library and engaged staff.
“It was a great opportunity to work with the City of Murrieta on their State of the City video. Murrieta administrators have a strong vision for the City and the Mayor has a keen sense of the future for the community,” said Melanie. “We were able to script, complete all interviews and filming and edit the project in 40 days due to the cooperation and efficient collaboration between the City of Murrieta and Tripepi Smith. Both teams are very proud of the final product.”
