Outspoken Move

My friends and colleagues at Outspoken have moved. Their new address is as follows.
The Bike Depot
140 Cowley Road
01223 719594

On Friday we had the joy of moving all the cargo bikes. Best done by a convoy of vehicles across the river, along Chesterton High Street and up the new section of the guided busway.

I found myself filming again, and being asked if I have any good footage. I produced this for them!

Outspoken Move to The Bike Depot from Outspoken on Vimeo.

Fun to do and only a few hours of playing around. I did an earlier version which has a little more, although probably too much. Still the musical cues line up a little better, or do they? You choose!
