Start of the Preston Guild 5k


A film documenting Preston throughout the Guild year has gone online.

The Preston Motion Picture Project provides a snapshot of the city.

Made by filmmaker Matthew Stanton and various community filmmakers it features scenes from Guild events but also clips from lots of other events during 2012.

Clocking in at 31 minutes it is a fascinating watch as you can bask in the great and not so great of our city.

Stanton said: “I am very proud of the film, as are the other members of Triptych Community Arts and the volunteers who generated all of the footage. It is now over a year since it was screened on the Flag Market but I would say that was our proudest moment, and we’ve had some really great feedback from people about the film.


“Over 30 filmmakers contributed to the finished product, and we couldn’t have done it without the Film Department at UCLan and all of the organisations who gave us access and permission to film at events across Preston. We learned a lot from making the film, both technically and about gaining and audience thought social media. I hope we can get another project up and running this year.”

We featured a lot of the individual clips as the project came together on Blog Preston, so it’s great to see the final thing all as one.
