I know nobody likes video reports much, but I hopefully this is a bit different!

Back in March we were in the old Forum Cinema in Liverpool (us and about 6 million other intrepid explorers, judging by all the fucking pictures online :D). Once we got inside, we decided it'd be fun to make a little exploring video...which somehow has ended up expanding into a 30 minute movie complete with voiceovers, historical research, a bespoke score etc. It's amateur as fuck, all filmed handheld on my DSLR with a single torch for lighting, but a little editing goes a long way ;)

It'll be another week or two until we finish the damn thing, so we shoved some footage together to make a trailer. There's even a nice piano piece written specially, the melody popped into my head while editing the photos. It's very dark and moody, think it suits the place though.

I swear the actual full-length thing isn't so serious and moody - it's mostly two idiots doing stupid 1930s voices and trying the call the sex hotlines in 1990s newspapers. Exhibit B:

I hope you guys find this more interesting than the usual 'gopro walking around footage with shitty metal background music' urbex videos, anyway.

Oh, and a few snaps for the family album:








Thanks for looking!
