Made in Sheffield was an exhibition at the Millennium Gallery in 2016–2017, celebrating the excellence and innovation of Sheffield makers. The four films below were created specially for this exhibition, and shine a spotlight on Sheffield companies creating products ranging from menswear to sweets, crisps and bikes.
As part of the Year of Making, filmmaker Shaun Bloodworth was asked to produce two of the films below (Mamnick and Field Cycles). Sadly, during the commission Shaun became unwell; his condition worsened throughout the year to the point where he was unable to continue work. On Thursday 15 September Shaun passed away. While Shaun was in hospital he asked his friend and collaborator, Museums Sheffield’s Digital Producer Alan Silvester, to complete the films he started. These two films have been created from the scribbled storyboards and notes Shaun wrote in hospital.
Named after the road that leaves Hope Valley and goes out into the Peak District, Mamnick make a range of clothing and accessories inspired by the landscape on their door-step.
