7/79 video takes viewers on unique visual tour of Cincinnati’s center city

View Cincinnati’s center city from helicopter and boat tours thanks to a new video produced by Seven/Seventy Nine. The two-and-a-half minute video offers dramatic views of downtown Cincinnati, the surrounding center city, and the Ohio River.

Cincinnati’s majestic hillsides, mighty river, and dramatic city skyline provide powerful vistas and scenery that make the Queen City unique. Many Cincinnatians and visitors from out-of-town know of the dramatic view from the Cut-in-the-Hill in Northern Kentucky, the many hilltop parks, or the streetscapes throughout the center city, but most have not seen the city from the air and water.

Seven/Seventy-Nine produced a two-and-a-half minute video for Soapbox Cincinnati that explores both of these. The video Seeing Cincinnati takes viewers into a helicopter tour offered by Stratus Helicopters and a boat ride from Ride the Ducks, both of which operate out of Newport on the Levee.
