In promoting Limavady and its key attractions Lance through his camera work showcases what a visitor can expect to experience during their stay or visit
Last summer was indeed a busy one for Lance Wilson, Lancorz Design, who in over a short period of 2 months produced 10 promotional videos of Limavady. This project was funded by Arc North West through the Rural Development Programme and Limavady Borough Council. Lance, who has achieved great accomplishments including success at competition level at the Ulster Media Show 2010, representing Northern Ireland at Global Game Jam in 2011 and creating animations for the BBC, naturally has a love of design and gaming but when he does have some project-free time, juggling is a key leisure pursuit.
In promoting Limavady and its key attractions, Lance through his camera work showcases what a visitor can expect to experience during their stay or visit. The Limavady Myths and Legends Sculpture Trail which can be viewed online, features the iconic sculptures and commentary by one of the sculptors Maurice Harron. Creating the video involved capturing stunning locations and views as early as dawn alongside the sculptures depicting myths and legends including Manannán Mac Lir, Danny Boy and Jane Ross, the Leap of the Dog, Paiste, Finvola, Rory Dall O’Cahan and the infamous highwayman Cushy Glen.
Lance did have a challenge in producing some of the videos, as heavy rain poured down during location interviews, but it certainly didn’t dampen his enthusiasm. It really doesn’t matter what the weather, Limavady promises adventure for all from outdoor activity providers including Carrowmena Activity Centre, Longline Surf School, FoyleHov and Benone Tourist Complex. This is certainly not an exhaustive list and many more outdoor pursuits can be found on Limavady’s tourism pages which can be found at www.limavady.gov.uk/visting/activities.
Of course we can’t forget about coffee and the café culture which exists in Limavady. Even if you are not a coffee lover, Limavady eateries offer excellent fare and an abundance of home baked produce. In another short video, Lance interviews café and restaurant proprietors about what they offer customers. Limavady does promote the use of locally sourced produce and suppliers and is home of Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil which has reached culinary markets overseas.
Considering that Limavady is steeped in local history, Lance captures what the local community know about subjects, including the origins of Danny Boy and what life in the Limavady Union Workhouse was like.
Also through the videos, viewers can learn about the Roe Valley Country Park, Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Limavady’s best small festival – Stendhal Festival of Art and the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre.
Limavady Borough Council would like to thank Lance for undertaking the video project, which certainly showcases Limavady as a visitor destination to Explore, See, Do.
