It’s the longest day of the year and we launched our Sheffield-in-a-day video project as we filmed today’s edition of The Star coming off the press, writes Digital Editor Graham Walker.

The Star was printed at our press in Dinnington at 1.07am - that’s almost three hours before daybreak - and it’s on sale in newsagents region-wide by breakfast.

Today we tell you how you can take part in our project to film The Longest Day.

The Bard Of Barnsley, Ian MacMillan, has joined in and writtem a poem to narrate over the video, called The Longest Deedar Day.

You can help us capture the best of today by sending us your short video clips or photos, to include in out finished film, which we intend to have on line by midnight tonight.

Send us your short video clips or photos, taken in and around Sheffield on Friday, June 21. We’ll include the best in our finished film.

But remember to keep your videos short, no longer than 10-seconds is ideal. Film them in landscape mode, on your phone, or other video devices.

You can email small files to us, with Longest Day Video in the subject field - and don’t forget your full name, address and phone numbers in the message - send to staronline@sheffieldnewspapers.co.uk.

If the file is too big, upload and send it to us for free using a popular online file share site, such as www.wetransfer.com or www.yousendit.com.

Alternatively, upload to YouTube.com or vimeo.com and send us the URL web address.

Only video and photos submitted to us by 10pm on the day - Friday, June 21, 2013 - will be considered for inclusion in our official video. And earlier the better.

We’re aiming to have it finished and on our website here by midnight.

But it may inspire you to make your own video - a snapshot of where you live, whether that’s Sheffield, or another part of South Yorkshire, including Barnsley, Rotherham or Doncaster. Send us links to your film.
