Cloud Nine Media | The Great Big Walk: Community & Cake
Sometimes, the journey is more important than the destination. Cake from a celebrity chef at the finish line is, of course, an added bonus. Across 21 days in May and June 2016, 13 people from diverse walks of life came together for annual The Great Big Walk organised by Eden Project Communities. Separated into 5 teams, each team walked from the Leeds to Sth Cornwall, Cardiff (Wales), Belfast (Ireland), London and Edinburgh (Scotland). At a time when public opinion has been polarised in dramatic ways, this mass-participatory event celebrated the idea that we have more in common than divides us. Cloud Nine Media was on hand to document an inclusive and inspiring stroll. In this film, “unsung heroes” from the local community and participants from The Great Big Walk meet up at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ in Axminster. Having laid on tea and a selection of cakes to make Mary Berry green with envy, the genial host shares his thoughts on why the gentle art of walking and talking makes perfect sense. Working with Zero30 Media, Cloud Nine Media covered this high-profile event over a three-week multi-location shoot taking in 4 different UK counties. In total we produced 5 hours of high-quality films which featured on prime-time slots on BBC News at Ten and live on The One Show, as well specially produced social media edits.

CLOUD NINE MEDIA AND THE GREAT BIG WALK: KEEPING PACE WITH A BREAKING STORY

 

Working with Zero30 Media, Cloud Nine Media covered this high-profile event over a three-week multi-location shoot taking in 4 different UK counties. In total we produced 5 hours of high-quality films which featured on prime-time slots on BBC News at Ten and live on The One Show, as well specially produced social media edits.

 

“The walkers set a gentle pace but this was a really intense and exciting project for us to be involved with,” said Steve Maud, Shooting Director.

 

“We were on the move all the time, producing a huge amount of output which had to be edited and ready for broadcast each and every day. It was a real technical challenge which involved lots of preparation and hard work to get it just right. The essence, as ever, was all about capturing the stories of the people involved.”
