Brightmoon Liverpool YouTube Channel Proves to be a Global Hit
By: Brightmoon Media
Brightmoon Liverpool, the YouTube channel of Liverpool film production company Brightmoon Media, has proven popular with viewers around the world, having passed the milestone of one million views in less than a year.
"We have been pleasantly surprised by the enthusiastic response to our content from around the world," said Roger Appleton, director at Brightmoon Media.
The Brightmoon Liverpool channel is a collaborative effort between directors Roger Appleton and David Bedford, plus Alex Holbourn, a Liverpool-based music producer.
Exploring Liverpool Music History
Brightmoon Liverpool's content is focused on the music and culture of Liverpool, with a specific interest in the early days of The Quarryment and The Beatles – prior to their international superstardom. The channel was launched on 18th July 2021, and at the time of this writing has over 1,000,000 total views and over 2800 subscribers. Some of the channel's most popular videos include first-hand accounts of John Lennon's first-ever show with The Quarrymen and The Beatles' last-ever show at the Cavern, both of which were highly eventful.
The company is well-placed to provide expert insight, with renowned Beatles author and historian David Bedford as one of its directors: "We noticed early in the life of the channel that our viewers were really responsive to content about the early pre-fame days of The Beatles, and that became our main point of focus," says Bedford. "We also make films about other prominent Liverpool artists from the 1950s to the present day, putting them into their proper historical context."
The Brightmoon Liverpool channel has a highly engaged community of followers within the YouTube platform, with many people from around the world sharing their own stories of Beatles discovery and times they have crossed paths with the Fab Four.
Looking For Lennon
The directors of Brightmoon Media were heavily involved in the production of the 2018 John Lennon documentary Looking For Lennon. Roger Appleton directed the feature documentary, David Bedford operated as historical consultant and associate producer, and Alex Holbourn worked on the project as a researcher. As lifelong Beatles fans, it was a pleasure for all parties to be involved with this project, just as it has been to run the Brightmoon Liverpool channel over the past year.
