Holding a video camera

Take part in Video Nation

Fancy yourself as a bit of a film maker? Here's your chance to make a video short about an aspect of your life here in Cumbria to be shown on the web as part of the BBC's Video Nation project.

If you've got something interesting to say about life in Cumbria then Video Nation could be just up your street.

We're looking for volunteers to make short two to three minutes personal videos to be shown here on the web as part of Video Nation Cumbria.

Subjects we want at the moment

Currently we are looking for people who have stories to tell about these particular aspects of life:

  • People who have been affected by Alzheimer's disease, addiction, eating disorders or self harming.
  • Remembrance, commemorating the 90th anniversary of Armistice and its effects on people since then.
  • Youth culture - how the young are perceived by society and their peers.
  • My Media - how you use your TV / PC / mp3 player / mobile phone (or don't!) compared to the rest of your family and friends.
  • Fear of flying - are you affected by a fear of flight, or have you overcome it? We'd like you to share your experiences on camera.
  • It's 25 years since the Miners Strike, did it have an impact on you or your family or the community you lived in at the time?


But don't worry if you don't have a camera or have never used one, as we'll guide you through the whole process. All you need is the enthusiasm!

It doesn’t matter what your age or circumstances are - we can give you all the help you need. And if you don’t like the end result, then it won’t get shown.

Video Nation is about the little details of life as well as the big ones, the lows as well as the highs, the funny moments as well as the deep ones.

If you fancy trying your hand at making a video short it couldn't be easier.

For more information on how to take part, simply fill in the form below. We'll get in touch if we like your idea and take you through the whole process.
