      The city of Albany has a new way of selling itself.

      On Wednesday, The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission announced that they are releasing a new Welcome to Albany promotional video.

      The 2 minutes and 12 second video will feature some of the most popular attractions around the city.

      Officials hope the commercial can be used to change the perception of Albanians of their hometown.

      Barbara Rivera Holmes, Director of Marketing and Existing Industries says, "people react to images, video and music, so this is a great way or people to see what Albany has to offer and start changing how they think of Albany in a more positive way."

      Holmes says the video will be released and put on their website, www.choosealbany.com in mid-November.

      Holmes adds that the video is being shot solely on an Apple iPhone 5S.
