I have updated two of the tourism films on Wyenot this week, making them more concise, with narration. I realize that I chopped and changed the Symonds Yat film only recently but I was not at all happy with the result of that change. Both of the videos on this page are the most frequently viewed, with over 15,000 views between them last year and so I wanted to make sure that new versions were available, ready for the 2010 tourism season and that they were right.

I have chopped the front end and some of the longer time lapse sequences in the Ross promo (immediately below) and have added narration. I am hoping that this will act as a good tourist magnet.

The Symonds Yat and Yat Rock film (bottom) has new narrative and the middle Symonds Yat East time lapse sequence has been severely chopped to make the film shorter, hopefully holding people's attention more easily.

I still absolutely hate my voice-overs but nobody (not even Tina) would volunteer to do it for me, so I had to sit in front of the microphone again. If there IS anybody out there with a nicer voice and better accent than my modified dull, Cockney sparra one - male or female, it makes no difference - someone who would be willing to spare an hour to help me out, I would still really like to change the voice-overs but it needs to be done soon as I have a DVD in production, which I want to get to the reproduction stage by the end of February, latest.

Whether that happens, or does not, I hope these new versions are enjoyable, and more to the point, that they work. They are already live on the Ross-on-Wye and Symonds Yat pages.

I have set them to play at Standard definition here for those with slower connections but if you want to watch in up to 720p HD, hold your mouse over the '360p' button on the progress bar and change the definition accordingly.
