Film company Salt Street aims to show foreign businesses what South Yorkshire has to offer

A series of video showreels from South Yorkshire’s Mayoral Combined Authority is being created to showcase what South Yorkshire has to offer to investors and businesses in the USA, India and other countries across the globe.

The three-minute films being produced by Sheffield-based production company Salt Street to hight what the Mayoral Authority Interim Chair Martin Swales says the area should be proud of. He said: “By producing these films, we have the opportunity to reach out to new businesses and investors internationally to showcase just what we have on offer.  South Yorkshire is going places and the time is right for us to really start shouting about it.”

The showreels bring to life so many aspects of South Yorkshire life, including everything from the region’s industrial heritage in steel and manufacturing to the fabulous surrounding countryside, plus the art, culture and leisure activities available here.  It looks at how South Yorkshire has innovated and used its knowledge to move into high value manufacturing sectors, as well as showing how the region is a great place to learn, work, achieve, relax and have fun.

The words to the showreel were written and narrated by Sheffield poet and novelist Helen Mort who has brought to life the opportunities, traditions and strengths of South Yorkshire, combined with the excitement of living and working in the region.

She said: “I was delighted to be asked to produce and narrate a poem as I’m from Sheffield myself, I felt I could give it local flavour and personality and provide a true representation of this region and what makes it so great.”
