AVDC is putting together an innovative art installation and looking for interesting Aylesbury Vale residents willing to be filmed talking about where they live and what is good about living in the Aylesbury Vale. The organisers' intention is that the project reflects a varied and interesting mix of Aylesbury Vale residents. They would like the film to be as positive about the Aylesbury Vale community as possible including the experiences of individuals living in Haddenham.
The same video mapping company involved in the Flame Lighting ceremony of 2012 are interviewing local people and filming them as they talk about where they live and the positive aspects of living in Aylesbury Vale. The final work with all the wizardry of back projection etc. will be played on a ten minute loop under the arches of Aylesbury Market Square during the evenings of this autumn
Some interviews took place on July but the organisers will be holding new interviews on 12th September at the Queens Park Arts Centre, Aylesbury between 12 noon and 8pm. Interviews last only about 20 minutes. Those willing to assist will be filmed as they talk within studio conditions, with a green screen behind, to enable special effects to be transposed into the film at the editing stage. The interview will be structured around a few questions that will be asked of the interviewee about how he or she feels about living in Aylesbury Vale.

The lack of a completed and Government approved Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) for the last several years has meant that AVDC has lacked a strong strategic framework by which it could resist the planning applications of opportunist developers, and Haddenham has been a favoured location.
