Fylde film producer is a "Covid hero" !

A local film producer has been given an award for his generous and caring actions during the pandemic.

Brian Hurst, who runs Brian David Films, has just been presented with a ‘Covid-19 Hero’ accolade by the Mayor of Fylde.

It is in appreciation of his services to the community during the challenging recent months. During the height of the Coronavirus,

Brian streamed the funeral services for many families and friends in the Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre areas who wanted to pay their respects but were unable to due to strict rules on attendance. Since lockdown began Brian has filmed and streamed free of charge around 200 funerals for bereaved families during the height of the Coronavirus.

Brian commented: “When Coronavirus struck and business stopped, I just wanted to put my equipment to good use and help the community. “I didn’t expect or do the filming for an award but this is a very nice gesture for which I am grateful. The kind words I have had from bereaved families and friends have meant a great deal.”

Now Brian is putting out a call for all couples about to get married in Blackpool and the Fylde Coast. Brian has now come forward with the idea to help couples who are tying the knot in the near future, which will be under the Covid restrictions of only 30 people allowed at the ceremony and reception.

Brian is offering a subsidised service of live streaming the wedding ceremony for family members and friends who are unable to attend due to restrictions to watch in real-time either via a secure live link or on social media. Brian’s local video production company normally films corporate videos, conferences, events, shows and along with weddings.

For further details on Brian’s live wedding streaming service, give him a call on: 01253 781203 or 07572 435918.
