All footage imporated for Lifeboats.TV Video Edit

colinandmatt.jpgColin and I are pleased to announce that all the footage from the eight locations which we’ve visited over the past year for the RNLI’s innovative Lifeboats.TV project have been imported ready for editing. Before the editing begins I’ve cut a movie with all the people we’ve interviewed, in the exact order they were interviewed. 180 people were interviewed, 20 hours of footage created.
We were sad to hear that the very last person to be interviewed (last in the below film) passed away suddenly and respect the families wishes that material recorded should still be used in Lifeboats.TV. Colin, myself and the team from Ultralab send our most sincere condolences to the families of the Tobermory lifeboat crew.
The following film will take a while to load, but should be worth the wait.
Watch 180 people the movie – made by Matthew Eaves this film includes nearly everyone who played a part in the Lifeboats.TV project: Play NowPlay in Popup

Beaumaris Lifeboat Station becomes focus for Lifeboats.TV Crew

11-13th February 2002
The Ultralab team headed up to North Wales to meet the crew of Beaumaris, home of the lifeboat ‘Blue Peter 2’. Here we mocked up a rescue launch, showing the tractor and Atlantic 75 lifeboat in action. The footage will be used online on the RNLI’s innovative Lifeboats.TV website which Ultralab is building in conjunction with the RNLI.
Watch one of the films created at the location as James Vaughan interviews a crew member.
Watch one of the crew set off a flare.
