The Coal Authority works to repair the effects of mining on the UK. This includes cleaning up environmental issues such as water pollution, as well as resolving damage claims and mining legacy issues.
They were aware of the power of video and knew a well-produced piece of content would tell their story. With the restorations being a long process it would be easy to forget how it was before and not fully appreciate the change. Video however could show this over a few minutes and would be very effective for documenting their efforts.
We have been involved in creating a series of promotional videos for their work in the Pennines, cleaning up several sites to prevent further water pollution. They use a range of methods to achieve this depending on the exact issue of each site, so capturing the entire process is always interesting.
As they continue their repair of the issues left by the UKs mining history, we hope to continue supporting their efforts through video production.
