As of December 2020 I’m planning a new documentary film with the working title “COVID Brighton”. I want to hear from anyone with a business which has been affected by COVID in 2020.
Much of Brighton’s economy relies on hospitality and so we may have been particularly hard hit by COVID. On the other hand we have many small media businesses which may have adapted to home working fairly well. This documentary aims to find out what’s been happening to Brighton businesses in 2020. Have they struggled or kept calm and carried on?
The broad idea is to hear from, and potentially interview, representatives Brighton business, understand howevents played out and build a narative to be told through the interviews and film.
I’d like to hear from
• Pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, venues.
• Travel companies, media companies, doctor’s and dental surgeries.
• Any other types of business.
• Trade organisations or other experts with an understanding of the broader Brighton economy.
None of this is set in stone as paths may lead off in different directions.
If you have a story to tell then please send me a message through the contact page.
The film will be entered into film festivals and potentially shown on TV though this depends on interest from the channels.
