56,000 – Premier from Paul on Vimeo.

Here is a taster of what a short film about Preston Bus Station will be like.

56,000 premieres at the Continental on Thursday 28 November and one half of the team behind the production says it came about because of their “shared affection” for the building.

Andrew Wilson, 50, and Paul Adams, 41, teamed up to make the 10-minute documentary.

Andrew said: “We both of us wanted to capture the unique architecture and Also record peoples memories and stories.

“We started filming in May this year when the Bus Stations future was still very much under threat. The welcome decision to give to award the Grade 2 Listing came through as we were shooting the final frames and beginning the editing process.

“We filmed at different times of the day, from early morning to late at night and encountered no negative feedback, people were curious and friendly and keen to pass on their opinions.”

Eight different voices are heard throughout the film, including those of campaigner John Wilson.

Music in the film comes from Stoko and Richard G Mitchell.

The premiere of the film is free to attend at the Continental from 8pm.
