Documenting the 2015 winter floods

Cumbria fire and rescue

Last month saw us shooting in a number of locations around the North West helping the Environment Agency put together 2 films for a conference that would discuss flood issues and in particular the 2015 winter floods.

We interviewed residents, business owners and local community services to get a good understanding of the situation they faced. In total we interviewed 20 people in locations from Salford all the way up to the Lake District.

Within a week we needed to compile all the footage into 2 films. One 15 min film that gave people’s accounts, the issues, aftermath and restoration along with a look to the future using what could be learned from what had happened. This would be used to open the conference and another film of 4 minutes would be used to close it. This end film had  a more uplifting message and focussed on the positives people took away from the experience.
