Wise words in wild paces

We’ve enjoyed hosting Nick Fogg and Mike Smart from Piece of String Media to film some archive documents. This is part of Mythstories latest storytelling project – Wise Words in Wild Places.

Local stories and legends are being brought to life in a number of ways – using artwork, on location filming and animation as well as documents, maps and archive images. The archive footage will be used for North Shropshire stories focusing on Haughmond, Colemere, Old Oswestry and Whixall Moss. Images will also be used by visual artist Andrew Howe in accompanying leaflets.

The film makers were interested in documents – and also views of our storerooms – that would ignite the imagination rather than provide a literal accompaniment to the stories. For us, it was a totally new way of looking at documents.

We can’t wait to see the resulting films which will be launched in the Mythstories website.
