The Milton Damerel Video Project is a snapshot of rural life filmed during 2018. After many hours of editing, a short, high production value video has been produced and this supporting website is now closed.
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, the parish website may not be capable of hosting video, enquiries are ongoing but all this takes time.
I had hoped a premier of the film would raise a little money for the church roof which is in a dreadful state Religion aside, the building is worth saving.
There isn’t much I can do about the situation so I have parked the video for now and archived a lot of the unused footage leaving me free to do other things. This does give me a bit of extra time to get people that appear to sign off on it. (GDPR and model release)
But is it any good?
Well, the original aim was to finish with a high production value video that wouldn’t look out of place on Countryfile. I am confident that the end result surpasses expectations and delighted by the reaction from those that have seen it. Comments from the early viewings would suggest it is not what people expected but then I had also been told (a year ago) ‘there is nothing to film in Milton Damerel…’
