VIDEO: The making of the Midhurst Happy video

DOZENS of Midhurst residents gathered in Market Square to film the final sequences of their hotly-anticipated Happy video.

Some 50 people joined forces last night (April 23) to finish the filming of their video, which has been more than a month in the making.

The final results will be aired at a Community Links service in the parish church on Sunday, May 11 at 10am, and anyone is welcome to go along and watch the film.

The Midhurst group decided to stage their own version of the video which accompanies the song Happy, by American singer-songwriter, rapper, record producer, musician, and fashion designer Pharrell Williams.

More than 30 groups from across the area have been filmed, including the Midhurst Players, the Rugby Club, the Midhurst School of Dance, the Boot Camp, the Pony Club, patrons of the Swan and Royal Oak, the Polo Club, MADhurst Committee, the Grange, MRC, Conifers, the Zumba Group, Centre Stage Academy, the Primary School, Midhurst Milers and the Snack Shack.

The purpose of the project is to ‘make a good-quality community video’ that can be placed on YouTube and town websites, to showcase Midhurst as a great place to live and visit.
