Youth Zone Event Filming

Saturday 16 January 2016 saw the grand opening of ‘The Way’ – the new youth zone in Wolverhampton – an event which we were lucky enough to record as part of our event filming service.

Building on the foundations laid by traditional youth clubs, a network of youth zones for 8-19 year olds have been created by the “Onside” charity, designed to give youngsters “somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to” within their leisure time.

The zones are particularly there for young people in deprived areas, where frequently the only alternatives are spending the evenings on the streets or isolated in bedrooms.

In 2012, Wolverhampton City Council decided that a new youth zone in the city would be of huge benefit for the young people of Wolverhampton and for those from other parts of the West Midlands too.

After creating a promotional video for ‘The Way’ last year, we were extremely proud to be invited by the event organisers to the official opening ceremony, and to conduct some event filming of the special occasion.

Our video, which you can see above, captures the highlights of the day enjoyed by over 1,000 people at the opening – including some familiar faces such as Wolves FC legend Steve Bull, and Chair of the Board at ‘The Way’ Steve Morgan OBE.

Alongside our event filming inside the zone, we also utilised our drone for some aerial shots of the outside of ‘The Way’, which has been built on the site of the city’s iconic Scala cinema.

We had a fantastic time at the launch event, and we’d like to wish ‘The Way’ and everyone there all the best for the future.

Do you have an upcoming event, and need some professional event filming conducted for it? We can do that, and much more, so please do drop us a line!
