News Getting back into the swing of things...

It’s only been two weeks since #GNRC12 finished but we just couldn’t wait to get started on #GNRC13.

Winner of our 2013 Great North Run Moving Image Commission, Melanie Manchot was in the North East at the weekend to film parkour runners on the iconic Newcastle Swing Bridge. 

With a little help from our friends (huge thanks to the Port of Tyne, and to Newcastle Council) and A LOT of risk assessment we were able to get access to the bridge as it was actually swinging. With cameras positioned on top of the Tyne Bridge Tower and the Quayside, Mel's crew had a great view of the parkour runner as he made his way along the top of the moving Swing Bridge. It goes without saying that the camera crew and parkour runners Mel is working with are all highly skilled and this is not something you should try at home...!


We’ll keep you posted throughout the year as the film starts to take shape – don't forget you can sign up for email updates, find us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for the latest news.
