The Brief:

The Cotswold Canal Trust and their partners were vying to secure £8.9m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to further restore the local canal in Stroud. The pandemic had ruled out the usual process of a visit from the fund, so the Trust wanted a film to help persuade them from afar.

The Results:

The film helped the trust to win £8.9 million of funding from the National Lottery and has allowed work to progress on the next phase of the canal restoration.

The Approach:

In order to film 49 people across 9 miles of the canal, we took a case-study/testimonial approach that highlighted the story of the canal restoration and showcase the work of all those involved. The idea was to give the Fund a glimpse into the impact of the work, so the film also needed to show all the scenery and make them feel like they were there.


We were very grateful to Dashing Bear Productions for pointing out perhaps deficiencies in the message where we needed to strengthen things and tone things down to get the overall feel of things. Dashing Bear helped us with that process and we ended up with something brilliant and it did land us £8.9 million."
