Southampton firm produces series of documentaries for Open University
A SOUTHAMPTON firm has produced a series of documentaries for the Open University.
Cyclevox, who provide PR and production services, has produced five films on bicycle design.
Design Behind The Bike, made for Open University’s free OpenLearn programme, was viewed more than 11,000 times on YouTube in its first week.
The films feature a number of cycling legends, including five times Tour De France winner Bernard Hinault.
The creative teams behind brands like Raleigh, Rapha, Condor, Genesis and Mavic also share insights into bike design and manufacturing.
Founder of Cyclevox, Anthony McCrossan, said: “We are proud of the project and success is evident in the immediate popularity of the programmes. We have a genuine passion for cycling and it has been a pleasure conveying the broad subject of design into film.
“The production team couldn’t believe their luck when I told them they were travelling to France to interview Bernard Hinault!”
The series is the sequel to the Science Behind The Bike programmes Cyclevox produced for Open University in 2012. Cyclevox was established in 2007 and now employs 25 full-time and freelance staff. It has produced cycling programmes for ITV4, Sky and Eurosport.
