The Milton Damerel Video Project is a snapshot of rural life filmed during 2018. After a year of filming and many hours of editing, a short, high production value video has been produced and this supporting website should have closed. However….
Where is the video?
Ive been informed that Parish Hall bookings are chockablock through the spring so a preview at that venue probably won’t be possible. In addition, notwithstanding permission from the parish council, getting a video on the parish website has all the complexity of a moon mission and would involve a web scientist from ICT ltd Exeter, the company that actually owns the website. It’s not going to happen.
I had hoped a premier of the film would raise a little money for the church roof which is in a dreadful state. I’m not religious but the building has stood for hundreds of years and believe we have a responsibility to save it for future generations.

The video will preview at Holy Trinity on 6th July for the BBQ and the 17th August for the Garden Party. Full details nearer the event. T-shirt’s, USB flash drives and car stickers featuring the ‘Hare and Witch’ logo will also be available.
But is it any good?
Well, the original aim was for a video that wouldn’t look out of place on something like Countryfile. I am confident that the end result surpasses expectations and delighted by the reaction from those that have seen it. It’s not for me to judge but I think the criteria has been met.
