A leading Tyneside video production company has partnered with the Ouseburn Trust, creating a short film aiming to promote the Ouseburn Valley, ahead of the Great Exhibition of The North.

Neil Wood-Mitchell, Creative Director at Newcastle based Three Motion explained his motivation for approaching the Trust. ‘We’ve been based around the Ouseburn Valley since we set up ten years ago. We love this corner of Newcastle and wanted to create a film which celebrated the area. The trust does an amazing job ensuring the valley remains a great place to live, work and visit. They were the obvious partner for this campaign.”

As businesses within the valley gear up for the Great Exhibition of The North, Chris Barnard, Chief Marketing Officer for the trust, remarked on how the team are working hard to ensure the area has some great attractions ready for visitors. ‘“The Ouseburn offers so many engaging activities for people of all ages in such a unique setting on the banks of the Ouseburn beneath the dramatic road and rail bridges and just a short walk from the Quayside or the City Centre.”

This colourful pocket of Newcastle continues to attract 1000s of new visitors each year and with so many great attractions on offer, deciding what to include was the first challenge for Three Motion. “The Ouseburn is a dream location to shoot, and whilst we could have quite easily have created a feature film, we were only able to capture a glimpse of life in the Valley!”

As one the North East’s leading digital agencies, Three Motion spends most of their time helping the region’s businesses share their ideas, products and services through video production and animation, so was a film which promotes an area, an unusual undertaking?

“We seek to partner companies who love what they do and Ouseburn Trust are a great example of a passionate organisation who strive to make a difference. There are very few places that can match Ouseburn’s rich heritage, stunning views and cool places to visit. We love its vibrancy and independent spirit. It’s a genuinely special place and we want to encourage others to appreciate it as much as we do.” With the aim of shining a spotlight on one of their favourite North East hangouts, Three Motion and the Ouseburn Trust hope their campaign will encourage others to go and find out more about this wonderful area.
