“Penobscot County Journal” is Explore New England Media’s third documentary feature film. The 60-minute film highlights the myriad outdoor activities available in Maine’s spectacular Penobscot County throughout the year. These include paddling, hiking, ATV riding, snowmobiling, camping, fishing, snowshoeing, boating, wildlife viewing, and more. The film also examines the history and culture of this fascinating slice of New England through the people who live there and know it best.
The cinematic style sets the film apart from other regional productions, and the work of cinematographers AJ Derosa, Kevin Erdvig, Zach Hand, and Camden Spear captures the region’s stunning natural beauty and local wildlife.
“Our production crew made numerous trips to Penobscot County over several years, filming different activities and seasons, always discovering some new, exciting facet of this diverse area,” said Explore New England host and producer Tom Richardson. “We’re sure it’ll make more people aware of the many things to do and see in this beautiful part of Maine—and convince them to experience it for themselves.”
The film is available on the Explore New England Roku and YouTube channels.
