- Dive into the Terriers survival season using Virtual Reality
Huddersfield Town securing Premier League survival in its maiden season has inspired Executive Producer Anthony Hagan and Sir Patrick Stewart to collaborate and make a short film.
‘Our Town’ is filmed using uGo Virtual Reality technology on a 360 degree camera by Director of Photography Paul Lilley.
The filming took place at two home games earlier in this season and captured the goings on in and around the John Smith’s Stadium on Premier League matchdays.
This 360 degree experience allows Town fans to feel like they are at the John Smith’s Stadium, being able to move freely from stand to stand to gain different experiences, as Sir Patrick Stewart narrates the poem about the Club.
The poem itself was penned by Ben Phillips and set to music composed by Sarah Bates.
The poem talks about the Club’s time at the John Smith’s Stadium, inviting ‘the Gunners, Toon armies, Spurs and Devils’ to come to West Yorkshire and test themselves against the Terrier.
The video and poem encapsulate the ‘Terrier Spirit’ and attitude of everybody involved with Huddersfield Town.
The poem reads as follows:
This is our town, our home, our place.
A town of industry, pride, passion and some grace.
This is the town where history was made, titles won, opponents slayed.
This is the town that has knocked on the door after 45 years we’re knocking no more.
This is our stage, our fortress, our den, 24,000 voices singing in unison.
This is the stage where we are ready to thrill against Gunners, Toon armies, Spurs and Devils.
This is the stage we will reach new height, back where we belong in the top-flight.
This is our home since ’94, down the banks of the Colne the old faithful pour.
This is a home of blue and white, when the crowd starts rocking it’s always a sight.
This is our home and we welcome you in, until the first whistle when we go for the win.
This is the place where the gaffer calls home, the stadium his castle, the dugout his throne.
This is the place where he plotted our return, where battles were fought, and victories churned.
This is the place where he rallies the men, he’s got Terriers tales wagging again.
This is the time for our talented crop to face Europe’s best, whatever they’ve got.
This is the time, another campaign, let’s keep this momentum, let’s build and maintain.
This is the time when our little town raises its head so come from your cities all you blues and you reds.
This is our town; this is white rose land from the train station to the Britannia Rescue Stand.
This is our town, our proud Yorkshire town with the biggest hearts and biggest smiles hands down.
This is our town, this is your invite, but enter at your own risk, these Terriers bite!
