The Vision Factory, run by Steve Haley from 1985 to 2002, was both a pioneering multi-media production company and a creative hub. Based in studios and offices on Zetland Road in Redland, The Vision Factory served as a launch pad for the creative visual promotion for many of Bristol’s most significant artists throughout the 1980’s and 90’s. Artists including, Massive Attack, Portishead, Roni Size, Smith and Mighty, and Mark Stewart, amongst many others, all worked on visual projects at The Vision Factory.

A programme of music videos past and present from Bristol’s underground music scene.
This programme of music videos and archive footage celebrates and explores Bristol’s rich cultural and musical past, where many artists and groups used moving image in new and innovative ways to accompany their tracks, before producing music videos became the norm.
From early footage and videos to more contemporary champions of Bristol’s music scene, this selection of films offers a glimpse into the musical journey of this vibrant, ever changing city, and celebrates both those more well-known acts and some of the unsung heroes of this evolving, influential and inspiring music scene.
