Background and production details
 
For my second day in the  North York Moors  I decided to film a walk that would heavily feature the beautiful village in which I was staying, Hutton-le-Hole . I felt it was one of the prettiest locations I had ever visited, so I was particularly looking forward to filming there. There was a walk in one of my guide books featuring a route from Hutton-le-Hole to Lastingham and back, so I chose to film that.
 
Tuesday 4th October 2016 was the day I would shoot “Hollow of Hutton” as I would name this film. I spent a good hour or two filming all over Hutton-le-Hole to make sure I would capture the village as much as possible. After this the walk took me across field to the lane leading to Lastingham. As I filmed all along here I then crossed the moors, eventually dropping into the deep but small valley through which Ellers Beck runs. Climbing up the other side I then descended into Lastingham. I shot many scenes around this village in particular the church and the pub, the Blacksmiths Arms . Climbing out of Lastingham took me through the small hamlet of Spaunton from where I recorded various shots as the walk led me along farm tracks across flatter terrain eventually leading back to Hutton-le-Hole.

​I wanted to create a different piece of music for this film rather than recording another version of “Purple Moors”, my “default” North York Moors tune. Therefore, primarily using the VP Soft string sound on my keyboard along with an electric piano accompaniment I came up with a brand new melody.
