Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO)’s Central Oregon PubTalk hits the road! Join us in Sisters at Three Creeks Production Facility to hear what’s been cooking in their entrepreneurial community. See below for the Sisters-centric lineup of companies presenting later this month at the Tasting Room @ Three Creeks Brewing Production Facility in Sisters on Thursday, July 25, at 5pm. Tickets are on sale now and available via Eventbrite here.

EDCO’s Central Oregon PubTalk is a happy hour aimed at bringing together different facets of the business community in one place to network, share ideas and further local businesses.

Keynote Speaker

Samuel Pyke, Founder, Owner, Producer, Cinematographer Hill Shadow Pictures

“Every moment can be captured in the right light…”

Growing up in Sisters, Samuel Pyke was drawn to telling stories, specifically in the visual medium. He began to recognize the importance of composition and other characteristics that would draw people into his work. He’s created incredible work for companies including Realtree, Camp Chef, Smith & Wesson, Discovery Studios, and many more. He’ll discuss the expectations of his clientele, how he works to make their different visions a reality, and how he’s been able to live and thrive professionally in a smaller community.

Company Pitch
