NEW SYMONDS YAT FILM FOR 2010 TOURIST SEASON........

Adding up the view counts on both You Tube and Vimeo, the Symonds Yat tourism films I put together on Wyenot for the 2009 season were watched over 10,000 times during the tourist season - between the months of April and November.

Rather than have three separate films for the area though, for the 2010 season, I thought it might be better to make just one, narrated edit, using material from all three plus some extra sunset and night time scenes. The new film can be seen below. I hope that it helps local tourism.

Feedback has so far been good, other than from one local person who does not like the music. Strangely, everybody else has said they particularly liked the choice of music.

Other than that used in the opening and final scenes, the music is perhaps not my personal preference either but it is not as simple as buying a CD and ripping it. I have to have a license to broadcast it, and I have to pay for this out of my own pocket. This is not cheap and so far, music for broadcast on the films I have made for Wyenot has cost me close to £700.00. I have to buy what I can afford, and I use the word 'afford' lightly because Wyenot is still running at a loss to me personally - even after 10 years. If somebody would like to finance something more fitting, I am more than willing to go along with that.
