Alnwick's Back - watch this young filmmaker's video supporting businesses the town
With the easing of lockdown, we've been encouraging our readers to #SupportLocal - and here's an Alnwick resident who has used his filmmaking skills to do just that.
Gabriel Brown, a student at Northumbria University studying Film and TV Production, wanted to use his talents to benefit the town's businesses.
On June 15, non-essential retailers across the country reopened with measures in place to combat the transmission of COVID-19. Retail bosses recently revealed they have been ‘overwhelmed’ by the response so far.
Gabriel, 20, who is also a freelance filmmaker and a Film and TV assistant teacher at PQA Sunderland, has certainly captured the buoyant spirit of the town's independent traders.
To produce the video, Gabriel worked with The Alnwick Gallery, Hotspur 1364, Marilyn & Melrose, Matt Robson Artwork, The Origami Café & Gift Shop, Penn Gallery, Robinson’s, The Rolling Pin and Ruby Tuesday Alnwick.
