Filming a park in Winter!
For the second in a series of promotional films for Torfaen Council we made a film on Pontypool Park. Before we even start here - go visit it! It's a beautiful old park given to Torfaen by the Hanbury family. It is home of Pontypool RFC, a ski slope, the Folly, the Grotto, Pontypool Active Living Centre, acres of woodland walks, the list goes on....oh and it's within walking distance of the shops in Pontypool so you can get some retail therapy in too!
We filmed in early March. It was cold, damp and with a solitary daffodil just emerging. How could we make this place look beautiful? Easy! The Park just has that atmosphere that comes across on film. So many people use it every day and the joy they get is simple to see. Got to say that the Council were superb to work with too. They gave us the brief and let us get on with it! So here is the second in the series "Pontypool Park" hope you like it!
