Town Promotional Video

Recommended Posts

If any of you were wondering what I was doing sat at the side of the road this afternoon, I was getting some intro test shots for a promotional video for the town.

It was very windy and I only took my lightweight tripod so the camera took a bit of a bashing and no colour correction has been applied. The footage is not as good as the final results will be I just wanted to get something up quickly to inspire people in order to gather some feedback and suggestions.

What I was thinking was a day in the life of bedlington, showcasing some of the local businesses, candid and impromptu encounters in the street, whatever the market place events may be at the end of the month, the night time social scene and some local imagery.

I think time lapse will play a big part due to the extended timeframe of events and it will allow people to see the town how they wouldn't normally see it.

Bedlington singer/song writer Jason Vare AKA Shagpile has also very kindly agreed to provide the backing track. You can listen to some of his music at http://shagpile.org/

nice timelapse would be good a night! :D

Yeah you can't beat a good set of trailing tail lights.

Incidentally, if anybody has any video footage of the town themselves, get in touch. It'll be far more interesting if it's community led and not just a couple of people's perspective.

That was you??? It all makes sense now! We were deciding whether to moon you from the window of the 'Tavern but much more interest was provided by the antics of a geezer in a white Mondeo who'd been clamped outside the old garage!

Great idea, but what about focusing on the historical sites in the town? Morpeth takes great pride in its history while Bedlington seems all too willing to forget its own. Good luck, and look forward to the results.

Congratulations FourGee, this sounds like an excellent project, are you planning on puting the finished product on the net or will you be dangling it in front of Tyne Tees TV for a screening?

It'll definately be on the net but I think we should push it to as many outlets as possible.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
