Ian talks about the Abundance of Welsh Weather (Rain)
A light hearted little film about why there’s so much rain in Wales.
When the heavens open we can’t do much except sit indoors and watch the downpour. Cameras really don’t like the wet stuff, and so rather than sit inside and mope, we decided to make a film about the weather instead.
We live in Wales, and Wales has a reputation for rain.
And it does do that thing.
Sometimes it’s a light drizzle, and sometimes it really means it.
It fills the gutters, runs into streams, and creates waterfalls and rivers.
But there are sunny days too, and because there’s sunshine and rain, Wales is lush and green.
We get more of a downpour because we’re on the western side of the country, and get the wet air from the Atlantic, and because we have mountains, which encourage the air to drop its water, the pretty stuff makes more pretty stuff happen.
You see the mountain makes it rain, which makes stuff grow, which makes it pretty.
So, if you feel that the wet stuff is a negative, perhaps you might like to reconsider.
I’ve got very wet ankles now.
I’m going to come inside, cuz it’s wet out there you know.
