Tar Barrel Videos on Sale
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

August 5, 2016: Geoff's DVD of the 2015 Tar Barrels is now on sale at The George Hotel and the Hair Gallery. Filmed using 8 cameras manned by members of the Tiverton Camcorder Club it features:

  • a realtime record of the entire morning run, with professional voiceover and three songs including the much requested Born to Run from Bruce Springsteen. A GoPro on the sled shows what it's really like to pull the barrels. (12 mins)
  • a newsreel-type compilation of the evening run, featuring the Silver Band and footage from around the route. This film won a 2nd in the Frome 5 minute Film Festival and was a finalist in the recent Hothouse Nottingham Film Festival.
All proceeds to Tar Barrel Funds. A copy of the DVD will be a prize in the Tar Barrel Challenge Raffle this weekend.
