This project Unseen Voices, is a new silent digital film (8 mins) as part of a collaborative interdisciplinary creative learning project, created and delivered by Sergio López Figueroa (Creative Director of Big Bang Lab). In two-week workshops a group of music students learn the history of the second World War, the Holocaust and Kindertransport (youth refugees in 1939) by learning how to create a film entirely by re-using archive film footage and photography and editing digitised clips, learn where and how to research, copyright issues, make the storyboard and the film, compose the music with support of Music Leader and finally perform live at the Holocaust Memorial Day with the Unseen Voices film in Wembley Town Hall in January 2008. At a second stage, an educational DVD was produced including four mini documentaries of the whole process and further resources including web resources for the use of teachers and other schools and distributed to 100 schools in the Borough. The project was funded by the Museum Libraries and Archive Council (MLA) and is now actually being used as a best practice model for the second stage of their funding program. A MEDEA Showcase is dedicated to this project, including an interview and excerpts from the DVD: http://www.medea-awards.com/unseen-voices
