A lead partner for the project through in-kind contributions and future hosts of A Time Traveller’s Guide to Bristol at M Shed from 2011. Bristol Museums and Archives have partnered the project through Sarwat Siddiqui, Curator of Community History, who has advised on project development and has led on community participation through a series of workshops with local young people. They have helped to create the 'future visualisations' and produced some contemporary archive material for the project. In particular, without the support of Bristol Archives the project would not have been successful. They opened up their extensive film archive, allowed us full access and worked tirelessly to provide us with the material we needed. We are especially grateful to the Senior Archivist Richard Burley for his advice and support and to volunteers John Penny and Clive Burlton. Bristol Central Library have also provided photographic still imagery that we have used in the project.


Barnaby Menage of Micro-film.org created the website for the project as well as the amazing virtual 3D recreated street scenes of Castle Park and Park Street.


Mobile Pie create games and entertainment for mobile devices. They developed the iPhone application for the project and are also researching into the potential of adding an augmented reality function to the App.


PreConstruct are an architectural visualisation company who volunteered to help us design spectacular visions of Bristol's future. The images were created by Rosie Harris and Bhuman Mirani under the supervision of Martin Drake.


Dan Blore is an independent sound designer who we have collaborated with on this project to create a soundtrack entirely from found audio archive for each 'hotspot' film.


Independent Telecine Operator and restorer of Archive films, Mark Knights has transferred most of our film footage into digital formats.
