The South Wales Evening Post wrote a piece about the launch of the video channel for Swansea we have created with 4 other video groups here in Swansea.
STEPHEN Fry talking briefly about Swansea's Viking links, a how-to guide to jewellery making, wedding footage, a critique of Swansea Film Festival and some very freaky grass in Singleton Park — a new video channel launched by Undercurrents sees people posting snippets and items of local interest, with a launch event going ahead tomorrow in Castle Square.
Some of the Swansea Telly clips will be shared on the Big Screen for the launch, from 12noon until 2pm, and they are also on show at www.swanseatelly.org
The items screened on the channel have been produced as part of a digital inclusion project to get older people, the recently unemployed and others to create and produce online content on issues that interest them, with workshops going ahead throughout the year covering computer skills, film production, digital photography and other topics.
Young people's views on issues, funny footage, people's bugbears and more are there to see, too.Undercurrents, based at the Environment Centre in Swansea's Pier Street, specialises in films about social, political and environmental issues and related campaigns.
News Wales also reported the launch so read it here
