Abstract or description

The aim was to apply the Production House film model to a co created World War Two narrative about Holocaust sites using for mass public dissemination.
Production House is a distinctive and multi-disciplinary creative practice-based approach to history and educational films created by Associate Professor Fiona Graham. These films are then used in the local community to allow narratives to be told and for dissemination to a wider group of audiences to be achieved.
Graham secured HEIF funding for the filmed research project in Poland to work in collaboration to create visual content, testimonials and produce drone footage with secured access, licenses and film permits at sites in Poland and at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum.
The Production House model draws on Graham’s own research into new history narratives and the embedding of dissemination into the production process itself.
The videos used on this website include personal testimonials, exterior footage, interior film footage of sites at Auschwitz Birkenau in Auschwitz 1 camps, and various interviews with experts and academics.
The multi disciplinary film technology team was led by Graham with film academic colleagues Paul Ottey and Dr Mel Lee, film graduate Tom Andrews and film undergraduates Natalie Argent and Tom Reid.
New narratives were co created with Professor Caroline Sturdy Colls and new content produced and edited with the Production House method within Staffordshire University's Centre of Archaeology where Graham is a research member.
The inter disciplinary approach with four film colleagues and students shows how a Production House model can be applied successfully not only to their own research but also to colleagues.
