By Any Means was an event held in July 2011 as part of Sheffield’s Cultural Olympiad, and to prelude the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics. This video shows the amazing variety of people, activities and events that make up Sheffield’s cultural life.
Sponsors include Arts Council England, Sheffield Lighting the Flame for Sport, Popup Arena and Sheffield City Council.

The video was shot and edited by an experimental collaborative project called Flying Monkey TV (FMTV) which uses informal and crowd-sourced material to capture timelapse and live video shot on a range of compact cameras. For this event the FMTV crew was Richard Bolam, James Price, Pixelwitch JaQ, Laurence Alexander and Tara Armstrong, and the promo is a mixture of material from all the collaborators. Music by Laurence Alexander.
