Portas Pilot Video – Fast Facts

  • The filming over five days included 25 interviews
  • There were 220 video clips created, covering over three hours of footage
  • This had to be edited down to around six minutes, and our objective was to give everyone involved a moment on screen, cover the story of the town and its people and highlighted the most innovative ideas in our bid
  • Editing took around two days
  • Uploading the final edit to YouTube took nine hours overnight
  • The bid has now been submitted along with a 20 page action plan, fully detailing our ideas, with a timescale to match
  • We believe we are among one of the smallest towns to enter, with a population of just 5000

As you can imagine, all this work represents a huge amount of time and effort by a core team of local business people, time given for free because they want Rasen to succeed. Tonight we ask for more to step up, and turn Rasen’s fortunes around, Portas or no Portas.
