London – This week’s Innovate reports on the Listeners Project, a collective that is creating film shorts in the capital’s disused buildings.

  • Drawing aesthetic inspiration from abandoned spaces, creatives race to produce the film shorts in just 24 hours
  • ‘We acknowledge the history of the space and tell stories that keep it for ever,’ explains founder Ben Lambert

Before the demolition teams roll in or the gentrification process begins, some of London’s most iconic disused spaces, including Swan Wharf, Number 18 in Clapton and, most recently, BBC Television Centre, have been transformed into film sets. As a 24-hour challenge in experimental film, the Listeners Project has unveiled a series of four shorts and launch events across London.
