Greg Sykes, Project Manager for Bardsleys construction who are building the West Yorkshire History Centre in Wakefield, opened the gates of the project and welcomed local singer songwriter Teri-Ann Prendergast together with drama students from Wakefield College and gave them access to film the video for a song ‘Building Your Future’.
It all started when Mark Scott, Director at Futureworks (Yorkshire) met with the young, up and coming singer Terri-Ann Prendergast at the Prince’s Trust Awards in 2014.
Mark and Terri-Ann got talking about work and aspirations, which led to discussions about using music to promote careers in construction to young people…. the idea was born and Bardsleys were keen to show the construction industry’s support for apprenticeships.
Terri-Ann began putting lyrics and ideas together and the initial idea is now a reality as ‘Building Your Future’ was released 1st December 2015. A video for the single was shot at the West Yorkshire History Centre building site with drama students from Wakefield College working with Bradford based company GVisions. Watch the video for Building Your Future. The song is also available to purchase on itunes!
We wonder if it’s the first time an archive building has been used to film a music video?
