The Other Forecast is a new project by artists John O'Shea (Manchester) and Ellie Harrison (Glasgow), made in response to the MediaCityUK site at Salford Quays - home to the new BBC and ITV studios. On Friday 25 October, six artists were invited to MediaCityUK to create their own take on the familiar 'weather forecast'. Recorded LIVE in front of a greenscreen in one single take, they each explain to camera the interconnectedness of a variety of local and global systems - not just meteorological, but social, political or financial - presenting a different 'worldview' from their own personal perspective. The Other Forecast films were premiered at a special event hosted by Ellie Harrison and John O'Shea at the University of Salford on Saturday 26 October. They were then released on this YouTube Channel and broadcast on the Big Screen at MediaCityUK from 11 November 2013.
