Joining Forces with Lost Histories
If you are a part of a local history group or an individual, who has researched or has knowledge about lost histories in Derbyshire or bordering county, please do contact us.
We would like to join forces with you.
We at Lost Histories just love documenting history through the power of short films. We are self-funding so we are very traditional filmmakers, who make documentaries with cameras, avoiding heavy editing as a rule.
We have plenty of researched ideas ourselves, but it doesn’t mean to say we can’t join forces with you. Indeed joining hands with third parties bringing innovative or original insights missed by us would no doubt serve the purpose of enhancing the project/s to further heights.
You have researched about local history and want it to be made into a short film, first of all, your idea is your idea, you will be credited as such. Secondly, the research needs to be on paper. I would love to delve into your mind, but that’s out of our budget.
It’s the implementation and execution of that research that’s the hard part. Lost Histories have the crew and the know-how to make documentaries, but it’s the money aspect which is the stumbling block. As you can imagine most documentaries don’t make a profit, yet we still make a record of history. The value of history and your idea is a driving force, the documentary might be consolidated to five minutes, but the most important part is it’s recorded and at the moment we can’t see the internet coming to a meltdown just yet.
