Call for contributions - Short documentary about bicycle paths along A105 26 Nov 2018 21:17 #4235

Sharing the A105 is a short documentary about the new segregated bicycle paths along Green Lanes. Commissioned by the local Talkies Community Cinema, the film aims to present the various perspectives about the paths from local residents in the hope of fostering a mutual understanding and building harmony amongst the local community.

We have filmed interviews with a number of local residents with a good range of views and are now putting out a final call for contributions from interested parties. If you want to get involved comment below, message me on Facebook or fill out the form on our website where there is more information about the project: www.sharingthea105.co.uk

All views are welcome and contributions from women and minority ethnic backgrounds are particularly encouraged.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
Hardy

Great idea for a project, Hardy.

Is there a draft/early cut for review? Or do you just want comments in and you'll compile?

Are you happy to paraphrase is comments/feedback are too waffley?

Hi David,

There is no early cut and I don't currently have plans to make an early cut public particularly because Talkies Community Cinema who have commissioned the film will be premiering it in March 2019.

I will be editing filmed conversations extensively. Most of my conversations so far have lasted around 45 minutes but the target length for the film in its entirety is around the 15 minute mark. I say edit, but I am being extremely careful not to misconstrue an individuals view and moreover am taking great care to be sensitive about how I deal with the variety of views that will be presented.

If you are interested please head over to www.sharingthea105.co.uk and fill out the short form to get the ball rolling.

Thanks for your interest!

I was interviewed by Hardy Saleh today as part of the making of this film, and felt that it was thoughtfully and thoroughly done. I look forward to seeing the finished product sometime in March/April and hope that parents especially will take time to see it.

Nobody who has read my contributions to this website will doubt that I am a strong advocate of cycling, and it worries me that I have seen so few children learning their skills on this protected space for cycling. Presumably this is because parents don't cycle, and don't value it as a convenient way of getting about locally, but they should remember that many developed countries have recognised that there are many benefits: need little space, no exhaust gases, generally safe , very good exercise, easier than walking for many older people with aching limbs.

Not convinced, then go along and see the film when it is done and hear the arguments from both sides.

Finally bear in mind that it is hoped that the Quieter Neighbourhoods(QN) currently installed, currently being installed, and about to installed, will have low speed limits and some barriers to speeding. I hope that kids will be able to improve their skills there; certainly that has been the case in other European countries.
