Shooting the Past

Shooting the Past brochure

On Friday the MRC ran a session on Archives and Research for Year 10 students taking part in the project Shooting the Past.

Shooting the Past is a collaborative project between UniTracks, and the Departments of History and Film & TV at the University of Warwick. The aim of the project is to create a short documentary on their hometown or area. Last week students taking part came to campus for a 2-day event, and were introduced to the basics of documentary style, film production and archival research.

The films will be screened at a special event in March.
