I was asked to come up with a concept to tell the great story of Balcombe, a village targeted for fracking by Cuadrilla in 2013. The town responded by protesting, resisting and pledging to go fully renewable.
We painted their story in light under the guidance of light artist Sola, and with the help of the awesome schoolkids and local villagers.
It was a privilege to tell the story of a committed community, not just saying no to something, but saying yes to doing things differently. We had to change the structure of the film a bit as government cuts to solar subsidies threatened to kill the project. But they are back and planning to expand their solar offering. You can get involved here.
