Ommegang Commercial

Filmed In Pioneer Park

Local filmmaker Xander Moffat of Cooperstown works with his film partner Pedro Mermolia to frame a shot of Santa’s Cottage in Pioneer Park yesterday for a Brewery Ommegang commercial. According to  Ommegang’s Creative Marketing Director Larry Bennett, the ad will be used primarily on age-gated social media sites.

COOPERSTOWN – Lights, camera, Cooperstown!

“We see a line of men, waiting in Pioneer Park,” said Larry Bennett, Ommegang’s creative director, as he outlined his vision for a commercial before the Village Board this evening. “What are they waiting for? The camera pans up to Santa’s cottage, and Mrs. Claus welcomes him inside. He goes to Santa, Santa opens his ‘Nice or Naughty’ book, and then hands him a bottle of Three Philosophers.”
