Making Progress

Over the last couple of week we have been mad busy filming for the City That Rocked the World. We’re out of the sixties and into the post Beatles era. We’ve interviewed too many people to mention but one particular highlight for me was an interview with John Power in the Casa on Hope Street. He spoke about Liverpool music and his career in the Las and Cast. We have also agreed to film an acoustic session with him.
Our two drama productions are taking shape – with casting and recces in progress. Shooting will take place in the next few weeks.

Busy Day at the Downtown Business Conference

Monday was a great day filming at the Downtown In Business Conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. It’s always a pleasure to film at a well attended event with speakers at the top of their game. It was good to hear speaker after speaker talking about the importance of young people to the economy and the need to get education and training right. Well done Downtown for bringing over Paul Levy from Philadelphia to talk about that city’s history and the narrative of how they have tackled problems that sounded quite similar to some of the things that Liverpool has gone through in the last 100 years. But there are differences. Where we have produced amongst others the Beatles, Echo and the Bunnymen, OMD and the Las I’ve never been a great fan of “The Philly Sound” and I would have instantly demolished the Adelphi Ballroom in Philadelphia just on the basis that Daryl Hall and John Oates met there in 1967.
Anyway, it was an inspiring day and we are currently working on a 3min film which should give a taste of what the day was like and I hope the other material will become available in the near future.
