Creating a record of The Gate Studios
We have recorded on site interviews with people who worked at the studios,
and will continue to record the story of The Gate Studios until they are replaced by new housing.
Scanning photos, films and videos
Many people have still photos and in a few cases films or videos of the earlier days of the studios. We are able to scan or copy this material
so that it can be preserved and shared with the community. We
guarantee to return all such material within 3 working days, unless
you request that we arrange to store material for longer.
An active programme of audio interviews
We are interviewing past film workers and plan to make these interviews accessible to all, through published transcripts, local displays and perhaps by publication on this web site.
We have worked with the Students Arts Council and teachers at Hertswood
Specialist Arts College to prepare a programme for all Year 10 students.
Winning teams had the opportunity to work with film and museum professionals to research and create their own film and television displays
which were then publicised and exhibited locally last November.
Several new projects for the 2007 / 2008 year are now being discussed.
