Amateur movie maker spreading the word about Nanaimo

Scott Lissa is all about sharing – everything he learns about Nanaimo. He moved here from Calgary more than a decade ago, and since that time he’s been convincing people to move here, and he’s going to great ends to get out the message about our Pacific paradise and its amenities. 

And what better way than to show put it on film for his real estate clients? Lissa is a realtor with EXP Realty in Nanaimo and has produced a number excellent videos on Youtube.com to get that message out.

It about more than real estate, Scott is indulging a passion for movie production. It’s all spare time, he says. He’s made four videos telling Nanaimo stories thus far but has others that were part of his learning process. He’s planning to make a video a week for the foreseeable future. He spends his late evenings editing and there are more being filmed all the time.

Scott’s videos focus on golf, beaches, historical points of interest (heritage houses), commuting to Vancouver island, farmers' markets and more. He choses topics often raised by people looking to relocate to Vancouver Island, and they always ask for pictures and videos. 

“I was in Parksville giving a walking tour to a family from Winnipeg during an evening sunset. So I decided it made more sense to have a data base of videos than constantly repeating myself. I relocated here from Calgary in 2008 and love to share all the things I discover. 

He loves creating even  though he’s had no formal training. It’s a hands-on learning process, and the results show he’s a good learner. See Scott’s videos HERE
