Lancaster University Green Gown Award Film
We are in full video production at the moment with the Facilities Department at Lancaster University. This is the third year in a row that the University has been nominated for a prestigious Green Gown Award and Gorgeous Media has made accompanying films every year!
This year’s project is Grow It, Live It, Eat It – Health, Sustainability and Culture of Food at Lancaster University. Last year, our film was all about the Wind Turbine and the year before it was about the University’s Travel Plan. I enjoy these projects because it gives me an opportunity to see what’s going on at the University. Their projects just seem really inspirational and bold.
Anyway, this year it’s all about food. I have started to believe that I am a camera woman for Gardener’s World and have been gathering some totally gorgeous cutaways for the film from various herb gardens, orchards and allotment areas up on campus.
Here’s an aside: Did you know that the month of October is not mentioned in ANY of William Shakespeare’s plays? Not only that, when Will was a lad, there was no such season as autumn.. well there was, but it wasn’t called Autumn – it was called “Harvest”. I quite like that.
It seems totally amazing that when we started the production, we imagined that we may struggle with filming conditions because of autumn weather. We wanted to film a lot outside, including interviews. However, our problem hasn’t been rain or howling winds… far from it – it’s been the strength of sunlight! Who would have thought that at the end of October? I’ve been filming bees on flowers and green leaves on trees. It’s an extraordinary climate for the time of year.
You can have a look at the films we produced in 20013 and 2014 on our portfolio page.
The next film will be up there soon. This latest film has been shot in 4K and I am really pleased with the richness of colour in it. We’ve had to turn the film round in less than 10 day because the deadline seems always to be tight, but we enjoy a bit of drama.
Gorgeous Media would ike to wish the Facilities Department at Lancaster University well with their Green Gown Award entry. Let’s hope they make it three years in a row.
