My name is Roland Keates, owner of Lost Histories, a small independent documentary film production company. Lost Histories was set up to encourage and promote an appreciation and understanding of art and heritage through visual media, bringing to life the lost, forgotten and neglected history of Derbyshire and beyond.
I have recently produced a documentary about the dry stone walls of Derbyshire, "If Walls Could Talk" which tells the stories of dry stone walls in Derbyshire; how, why and where they were built and exploring how these walls can communicate the quirky tales of what are hidden inside and beyond.
The documentary is highly visual, letting the story and history of dry stone walls unfold using drone footage and steady camera work which ultimately showcases the beautiful imagery of Derbyshire Peaks and Dales.
If Walls Could Talk is now completed and I'm seeking help for funding to promote the film worldwide. It is my intention to show the film in as many avenues and areas to share the forgotten stories of dry stone walls, to entertain and educate people of all ages around the world and promote the beautiful landscape of Derbyshire.
With your support, the documentary will reach more audience, touch lives, encourage people to appreciate the overlooked beauty and art of dry stone walling, promote the everlasting beautiful Derbyshire landscape and inspire the younger generation to carry on the old tradition but dying skill of dry stone walling.
