Si no tienes un duro, no te hace caso nadie, dice la canci├│n. A quien s├ş les hacen caso es a todos los txistularis y gaiteros que tocan juntos tras el txupinazo en medio de la plaza ante sus fieles devotos.
Esquire Network┬áhas just announced today some of their forthcoming projects for 2015 and once again they plan to broadcast the Running of the Bulls live next July. Matt Hanna, Head of Original Programs at Esquire Network, made the announcement today and he justifies his new programming for 2015 thanks to the success achieved with audience figures which increased by some 21% from the previous year. Above all, there was a big increase in their male audience of men between the ages of 18 and 40 years.
The Running of the Bulls was defined at the presentation of the new programming as the best-known cultural icon of the whole world and he stressed that the broadcasting of the event would be live. As well as the live 2014 broadcasts, he also underlined the role of John Hemingway, grandson of Ernest Hemingway in the success of the event. John was, of course, Kukuxumusu guiri del a├▒o when he was given their foreigner-of-the-year award in 2013.
Accompanied by the phrase ÔÇťthe personality that makes us uniqueÔÇŁ -Y la personalidad que nos hace ├║nicos-┬áthe Pamplona Running of the Bulls has been included in the 2015 video to celebrate┬áEspa├▒a┬ábrand. The other events which accompany the announcement of the running of the Bulls are some shots of some flamenco hand-clapping, a colla castellera -a Catalonian human pillar of bodies being formedÔÇô which appears just before the bullrunning, and some images of a falla┬á-a paper-mach├ę monument from the traditional fiestas in Valencia-, which appears after the bullrunning shots.
The particular Running of the Bulls which was chosen for the video corresponds to the one that was run on the morning of the┬á7th of July, 2014, being precisely the second 30 seconds of the first minute of the run with the Torrestrella fighting bulls and which registered the first goring of last yearÔÇÖs fiestas. You can check for full information about that bullrunning at encierro del 7 de julio de 2014 en sanfermin.com. In the images you can see the bulls running half-way up the slope of Santo Domingo with the animals still in a tight compact group and running close behind the runners. The video was shot by the national TV channel RTVE┬áfor the Oficina del Alto Comisionado of the National Government as part of the Marca Espa├▒a video compilation.
This is yet another example of how seductive the Pamplona Running of the Bulls proves to be in attracting foreign visitors and tourists and in reinforcing the singularity of many Spanish traditions. The video can be seen at the web page of marcaespa├▒a and it was also used as the first commercial announcement of the new year broadcast with a selection of images over 59 seconds after the chimes of the bells to announce the arrival of New Year 2015.
A video of the Sanfermin 2014 Bullrunning on the 9th of July and shot in the latest 360 degree technique by┬áOpanibia Films┬áhas been selected by the principal media firm in this sector -360Heros.com- as one of the10 best scenes filmed in 2014. 360Heros is a USA web site which is considered a reference within the sector of filming in 360 degrees with┬áGoPro Hero┬ácameras. This prestige site is due to the fact that 360Heros avails of a world-wide server that allows these videos to be reproduced and because they create and commercialize the most-used supports to achieve spherical images with these types of cameras.
Opanibia Films used one of the 360Heros supports in order to record the video which has now been acclaimed. The video sequence was filmed from the balcony of the bar Cervecer├şaTxirrintxa┬áin Calle Estafeta, right in front of the┬áKukuxumusu┬áT-shirt store. In addition, the sequence shows (0:22ÔÇ│ seconds) a goring which took place in the bullrunning that same day.
