The Museum of Liverpool is hosting a free family-friendly event in The People's Republic gallery this weekend, working with artists collective Re-Dock to create a film to document the life of the Pier Head.

People of all ages are invited to the Museum of Liverpool on Saturday 15 October to get involved with an interactive filmmaking experiment aiming to create a film that mixes old and new footage of the Pier Head together, to create a looping video mix that will take the audience on a journey through time.

If you have any old or new video footage of the Pier Head and would like to be involved in this collaborative video project, Re-Dock is inviting you to contribute this so that it can be used to create the film which will be show on gallery during the day.
Whether you have footage or not, and would like to take the role of editor during this unique film experience, pop along to the Museum of Liverpool between 12 and 4pm on Saturday 15 October to try your hand.

How you can get involved

Re-Dock is looking for digital format clips of no longer than three minutes of video footage of the area around the Pier Head, which could be footage from this summer or from years ago.

Footage of the On the Waterfront events including the fantastic projections on the Royal Liver Building and the Museum of Liverpool, or of one of a number of cruise ships coming into port on the Mersey are just a couple of ideas for contributions.

The easiest way to contribute is to upload it to the project blog at: or you can bring your footage along on the day on a DVD or USB drive and Re-Dock will aim to include it in the project.

Please remember the Pier Head Time Warp can only use video footage if it belongs to you or you have permission to use it.
Contact Neil Winterburn at Re-Dock on 07528 316 230, or via the website to discuss sharing your video footage.
