Hill Street Takeover Film by Chris Bradburn

This is a stop motion film of the Hillstreet Takeover, filmed on a GoPro camera in November at the #brilliantlyboro #creativefactory space in the Hillstreet Centre, Middlesbrough. The editing was done by me (Chris Bradburn) using Adobe Premiere Pro. The music is from a site called the Free Music Archive and is royalty free.

This is my last project with Tees Valley Arts as I am leaving to further my career as a Filmmaker and am delighted to tell everyone that I have been given the chance to do a work placement at the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle Upon Tyne courtesy of Beacon Films, Newcastle Upon Tyne.

I am thankful to the staff of Tees Valley Arts for giving me this opportunity to develop my skills further in video editing and am also thankful to the staff of Step Forward Tees Valley for setting me up with this volunteering opportunity as well as all the support and advice they gave me.

Remembering Gordon Hodgeon

Gordon Hodgeon

Back when we were Cleveland Arts,  Gordon was involved with us through poetry and literature development. We are saddened to hear the news of his recent passing and we would like to give our thanks and pay tribute to Gordon for his contribution to the organisation.

An obituary for Gordon Hodgeon was featured in the Guardian in September by his friend Andy Croft.

My friend Gordon Hodgeon, who has died aged 75, was a poet, teacher, teacher-trainer and arts activist and a hugely influential figure in the worlds of education, publishing and poetry in the north-east for 40 years. Towards the end of his life, profoundly disabled, he produced some outstanding poetry while able to communicate with the world only by blinking.
