The Island Race - Anglesey Half Marathon takes place in North Wales and starts on the Menai Suspension Bridge which runners cross before following a 13.10 Mile coastal road route to Beaumaris Castle and back. My video features the pre-race atmosphere at the start line, the race itself and some coverage of the beginning of the route before ending at the finish line in the town of Menai Bridge as the runners complete the race.

To welcome engine 92214 to its permanent residence at the Great Central Railway the heritage line held a 'mixed traffic weekend' featuring various engines running alongside the new acquisition.
My video features the new locomotive as it travels between Loughborough and Rothley before continuing further down the line.

On a cold, wet and windy Valentines evening in February 2014 the small mainline station of Narborough was visited by steam locomotive Rood Ashton Hall.
My film features the "calm before the storm" on the station before the engine powers through at full speed surrounded by steam and blowing its whistle illuminated only by the yellow glow of the station lights.
Once the engine has passed all is as before with no trace of the engine that has just passed.

As the engine emerges from the dark bottle-tunnel its beams illuminate the event information on the left of the poster, a bright, warm orange and green colour scheme is used referencing the fact the event takes place in the warm month of May.

I travelled to Rutland Water to watch Olympic gold medallist Chris Draper in his Moth type yacht compete against over 200 competitors in the 21st Rutland Challenge for the John Merricks Tiger Trophy.
The trophy is a pursuit type race in which various classes of yacht compete against each other with a handicap (the Moths set out last as they are the fastest). The yachts completed a course around Rutland Water with good wind and beneath a crisp clear blue winter sky. My film features highlights of the action on and off the water and follows the Olympic gold medallist as he prepares his Moth for the race before taking to the water.
