Reflecting on COVID-19

Work / Bristol City Council

We were commissioned to produce an uplifting, realistic and reflective film on Bristol's time under COVID-19.

Led by a poem written by Bristol's City Poet, our challenge was to bring the narrative to life in-line with the poet's vision and intentions.

"I think this is great! Made my spine tingle a bit when the music picked up at the change of pace."

Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol

Covering our home city during a state of lockdown was a strange but inspiring experience.

From our initial conversations with the poet, to discovering the incredible efforts being made by people across the city, it's been an uplifting and eye opening project.

Our approach was a mix of pre-arranged scenes and observational documentary which ensured a balanced and authentic capture of the city during COVID-19.

It's not an understatement to say that we witnessed a city pulling together to help everyone in some way.

I recollect Bristol from
behind my eyelids and soften.
Tower block windows winking
from a humble summit.
College Green on a lunch break.
The Harbourside fringed with
giggles and shrieks. Top 40
Dribbles from taxis. All that fruit
jewelling Stapleton Road.
