Leicester Through A Lens Group Created by Leicester Through A Lens Group

Hello world!

This page is led by a group of postgraduate media students. We have designed a project which we’d like your help with.
We are creating a film, documenting the city of Leicester through a camera lens. We plan to film different locations around Leicester, at different times of the day to show all aspects of life in the city.

We are looking for participants to provide footage of Leicester:
• The footage must be of one to two minutes in length
• It can be edited or raw footage
• Footage can be filmed in any format, HD, SD, mobile, handheld video.
• We would obviously like good

Hello world!

This page is led by a group of postgraduate media students. We have designed a project which we’d like your help with.
We are creating a film, documenting the city of Leicester through a camera lens. We plan to film different locations around Leicester, at different times of the day to show all aspects of life in the city.

We are looking for participants to provide footage of Leicester:
• The footage must be of one to two minutes in length
• It can be edited or raw footage
• Footage can be filmed in any format, HD, SD, mobile, handheld video.
• We would obviously like good quality footage however it is more about the content you provide rather than the camera you film with.
• It can be from any time or location within Leicester city
• To be uploaded on our Vimeo page
• In our Vimeo forum we have listed possible locations for filming, as well as the boundaries of Leicester we would like to stick to.

We will use the best footage you contribute to the project to create a ‘day’ of life in Leicester, spanning 24 hours, condensed into a film between 60 – 90 minutes in length.

The documentary will show a 'composite' day made up of footage from different days, that will be edited in chronological order, according to the time of day the source footage was filmed at.

Making note of where and when the video was recorded, and capturing a sense of the 'feel' of the city and what happens at particular times and particular places is an important consideration for contributing film makers.

(All footage submitted will be available on our Vimeo site)

We will also be filming Leicester ourselves, and this footage will be combined with the public submissions.

This project is considered to be open source, if you upload your videos to our page, we assume that you don’t mind us using your work, all people in the final video will be fully credited.

We intend to publish the final video on DVD, and to have a public screening of the film, which all participants will be invited to. More details will follow.

If you would like more information or help to get started, we can provide a starter pack which will include: a proposal, flyers for the general public, suggested time slots and locations, details of where and how to send the footage, release forms for the footage and contact details of the project leaders. Please email us at leicesterlens@googlemail.com.

Thank You and we look forward to seeing your videos!
