Independent film maker Andrew Ryman has recently completed production of a Medway based documentary.
The hour long film entitled ‘The Changing Face of Medway’ documents social changes in the Medway Towns since the end of the second world war. Using the Dockyard, local businesses, housing and infrastructure as subject matter, Andrew has used a series of interviews with local residents to emphasise the human element in an engaging analysis of local history.

In one of several segments featuring local businesses, damp specialists Dan McLean and George Preston of Rochester Building and Damp explain why damp remains so prevalent in Medway and how their business operates on a day to day basis.

  

Following submission to the Aesthetica Short Film Festival in November, Andrew is planning to release his film online in early 2019. It is hoped the documentary will be accessible for free via a number of educational and history based websites.
