We’re delighted to announce Songs from the Shipyards, a new immersive online project – designed and built by El Mysterioso for Tyneside Cinema. We’ve used the latest HTML5 technologies to create a beautiful and user-friendly full-screen experience.
Telling the story of the North East’s shipbuilding industry from 1900 to present day, the narrative is set by a series of short films arranged and edited by filmmaker Richard Fenwick. Each stage of the journey is complemented with additional content, including films from national and local archives, newly commissioned work, photography and contemporary records. Fenwick’s films are soundtracked by Northumbrian folk group The Unthanks.
Songs from the Shipyards is hosted on The Space, a digital arts website developed by the Arts Council and the BBC.
