Promoting the Bristol region - on film, in the cloud.

We need to stand out in the world – with great images of a great place.

Published on Wednesday, 13th September 2017

Media Bank Online is a new digital facility to share footage and increase the impact of promotional film production for the region, delivered by the Bristol & Bath Cultural Destinations project, funded by the West of England LEP, and with technology developed by Support Partners.

It draws together a great range of partners across the creative industry, cultural centres, Further and Higher Education – in fact it can cover everything that goes on here!

This session provides a walkthrough of the beta version, and the opportunity to join the group testing and developing it.

If you are – or want to be – actively involved in visual production, sharing your own assets enables you to draw on others and build the profile of the region – making it a destination for companies, students, families and talented individuals.

The system produces a new Operating Model for promoting the city region, built on :

  • Easy licencing using a Creative Commons Non-Commercial Licence
  • Secure access and download – access from any terminal is controlled by password.
  • “If you can see it, you can use it” – only rights-free material is submitted
  • An intuitive user experience – with thumbnail viewing and a shopping-basket.
  • A wide range of re-usable assets – from edited versions to individual shots
  • High quality – the standard is High Definition, expandable to 4K.
  • Easy search and download – each asset will have embedded tags
  • Easy deposit – a cloud-based system, with ingest supported by The Engine Shed
  • Disaster-proof storage – you won’t lose your assets!
  • A powerful partnership of the creative, cultural, educational and business entities in the region, using great images to promote the region to commissioners, clients, students, prospective employees and funders.
