Derwent Valley on Demand Goes Live

We previously reported on the then-imminent launch of a new website and media service for the area, DV on Demand (DV=Derwent Valley).

DV on Demand is bringing together existing media sources like Nailed, Derwent Valley Mills, Artsword, Belper Arts Festival and Belper Celebration and combining them with entertainment and event diaries, business listings, tourism information and original content focused on the hugely varied events that make this area unique.

DV on Demand began life as an audio podcast , expanded into Facebook videos on some of Belper’s popular events, and has now grown into a multimedia endeavour, whose website went live yesterday, with a day of introductory talks and Q&As in No.28.

The talks began with this introductory trailer for the service:

 

 

DV on Demand is open to you, the people who live here and love here, to direct DV on Demand to cover the things you want to see, and to produce content,  under the guidance of the DVoD staffers.  The coverage is currently restricted to the World Heritage Site, with specific focus on Belper, and some on Duffield, because this is where DV on Demand has been born.  George Gunby, one of the founders, said that “it will probably end being what people want it to be, with our guidance.”

DV on Demand want to encourage locals, as well as tourists, to explore the valley we live in.  They want to provide a really good tourism resource to fill a gap in what Belper provides and highlights.

They are treating this winter after launch as a bit of a public consultation on what people want.  So dive in and tell them. Dive in and join them.

Nailed is very happy to be providing news for DV on Demand, and look forward to a partnership which helps Belper to become even better known for what it is good at, and helps Belper people find their voices and gets them heard.

DV on Demand is soliciting sponsorship from local businesses with two package deals for business representation, in addition to a free listing for any local business. Email media@dvod.co.uk for more information.
