The film is shown to millions of visitors each year at the Independence Visitor Center as an introduction to the sites, sounds, and people of Philadelphia, sending visitors out into the city to explore.
The Official Welcome Film of Philadelphia
As part of Bluecadet’s larger overhaul of the Independence Visitor Center, we shot, directed, produced, edited, and scored an 8-minute narrative film highlighting the Philadelphia experience.

Small Crew, Big Shoots
We kept the crew small and nimble, while still capturing the full range of what Philadelphia has to offer. From flying drones over Center City to the rare opportunity to bring a camera crew into Independence Hall, we got the shot.
Knowing the Audience
How do you capture the voice of a city, without any voices? Because guests at the Independence Visitor Center speak any number of languages, we made the film without any dialog or narration. The story comes through the stunning visuals.
The goal was to transform from a traditional visitor center into a digitally-advanced, interactive visitor experience. Bluecadet helped turn these goals into an exciting new reality.
