Created by local video production and animation agency Three Motion Media, 'Angel' captures the people and places that make our region special and explores what the word ‘angel’ means to different people.

The film follows six stories from across the North East, involving people and organisations from the business, public and charity sector including the Sick Children's Trust, RNLI, Great North Air Ambulance, Kaylee-Ann Davidson-Olley, a local hero and global ambassador for the World Transplant Games and a World War Two RAF Veteran.

In Northumberland, the film features scenes of Seahouses, Bamburgh and the Farne Islands, among many others in its feature on the amazing work the RNLI do, with a beautiful nod to the Grace Darling Museum too.

The work of the Great North Air Ambulance features in the film, Angels.

Since its premiere, the film has been added to the #UnlikeNEwhere website, a library of content that can be shared for free, with the aim of generating positive publicity for the North East and marks the launch of a series of films set to be published over the next 12 months.

Three Motion Media’s commercial director, Gavin Knights, said: “We took the word Angel and thought, what does it represent and how is it reflected in our region?

“The film, we hope, is inspirational, heartfelt, honest and reflects the work we love to do here at Three Motion. We want audiences to come out of the film feeling great about being from or living in the North East.

“We hope, through these few stories, that the film demonstrates just how amazing this region is and offers everyone a piece of content that they can share.”

The work of the Sick Children's Trust, an organisation that takes some of the strain off families with a seriously ill child by providing accommodation free of charge, features in the film.

‘Angel’ puts a spotlight on the people and organisations that support those of our region when they need it most.

As well as involving local businesses and charities, Three Motion Media also called on the general public to get involved in a photographic competition, offering contestants the chance to have their photos shown through social media.
