But were you pictured as you compiled your own film or took part in video link technology? We have 9 reminders of video and film stars from South Tyneside.
Some of them show the talented people who were behind the camera as they recorded great scenes. Others show people across the borough as they used video link technology in years gone by.
If you were a dab hand in the digital age years ago, we might just have captured you on film.
1. So kind-hearted from Aimie and Georgia
A 2010 scene showing Aimie Wilson and Georgia Bennett. They made a video which took a look around their estate and it helped to raise money for the Haiti relief effort 11 years ago.
2. Tackling an important subject
These youngsters used the power of video to tackle the topic of homelessness in South Tyneside. Are you pictured and which year was it?
