This is a lovely project which sees me working with experimental archaeologists who are involved in iron age smelting, spear making and pottery. I am making around 20 films that will be used in the visitor centre at Hengistbury Head which is currently under construction. Here is a very early cut of one of those films.
This Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) project is aimed at setting up a digital archive for the village of Alrewas. My role is to project manage the process, train volunteers in oral history taking and annotation and producing a film. We have just completed our first phase and have submitted a bid to HLF for the second phase of the project which will cover the period from the 1960s to the end of the 1990s.
For more information visit Alrewas Archives Website.
Here is a fun film from the archive.
St Andrew's Church, Epworth
This recently restored Church played an important role in the life of John Wesley. I am working with Focused Learning and Maltings Partnership to develop and install the interpretation. This project also includes partnership projects with the local primary and secndary school who will be helping to develop some of the resources.
Phoenix to Manor - The Story of A School
Manor High School is closing next year after forty five years. I am working with a group of students to make a film about the school to ensure it's heritage is preserved for future generations.
Blessed Robert Johnson Catholic College
As with Phoenix Collegaite this school faces closure and we are spending the next 18 months gathering as much as we can about the school over its 50 year life.
