A good run in the cup

Not since Brother ineaux issued commands from atop the Leeds Uni during LightNight 2011 have I done any outdoor projection. So when the BBC asked if I could project some images of footballers round Bradford, I jumped at the chance.

It was a pretty simple job. Head over to the gorgeous architecture of Little Germany. Find some nice dark buildings. Fire up generator. Play the footage from 1911 courtesy of the Yorkshire Film Archive.

What started out as a 10 minute slot for Inside Out had suddenly become a half hour news special, so the producer also had some nice BBC footage of JB Priestley visiting Bradford that we also used.

I love this shot of him sitting in a carriage framed on a wall…

Priestley wall

I just hope this is no longer an appropriate epithet for the city…

lost city
