Five interns from Teesside University started with East Cleveland Online this week. They’ll be working on new films to add to the story map:

We also have a new partnership venture between ECOL and Tees Music Alliance called Tees Valley TV and they’ll be recording a few TMA gigs. Then at the end of their internship we’ll produce a blogcast via Tees Valley TV. (a blogcast is a scheduled stream of media released over the course of a day) This will take place on August 6th – viewable online at There will also be a physical celebration event at a location in East Cleveland (venue TBC) and maybe a simultaneous one in Stockton.

The Interns will also be shooting some scenic footage for exhibition at the Heritage Open Days at Loftus Town Hall. This will feature in a partial Octorama which we’ll also exhibit on  August 6th.

Finally the guys will be shooting a video of the refurbishment of Skinningrove Jetty. This will probably include clips from the machinima movies that Steve Thompson, Barry Hunt and Tommy Evans made depicting how the jetty might look and now the students will be able to show the work in progress
