Lost Histories is an independent film production company set up by Roland Keates during his time studying at Derby University. His budgets are low, but his production values are high so giving documentaries alife of their own.
Roland wants to “encourage and promote an appreciation and understanding of heritage, history, and art in Derbyshire” via making short films, looking for those themes that are alas losing an audience or popularity in no small part from neglect of the sector. Lost Histories, therefore, sums up the activity of this small production company to perfection.
Our aim is to make five minutes to 90-minute historic documentaries films, researched through many different channels. Once a complete picture with all the complexities is understood, we prefer to shoot in a traditional and realist way.
Derbyshire and beyond
Because Lost Histories is a self-financing production company, this restricts us to work only in Derbyshire (where all the crew lives), for the time being. If you are a Philanthropist or a producer who would like to donate money to make documentaries or even be part of the crew we would love to hear from you. We are open to researching/filming/promoting documentaries for the private or public sectors, having vast experience in research and filming with original ideas.
