Archive films

Working closely with British Museum’s exhibition team, Clay digitally enhanced archive material and edited together two short films showing different aspects of the journey to Mecca over the years.

The Mahmal film sat alongside the large object on display in the exhibition and helped visitors to contextualise the object, imagining the journeys it had been on.

The Jeddah film focussed on the different methods of transport that have been used through the ages to get to Mecca. Transport is one of the few things that have actually changed about the Hajj since the Prophet Muhammad’s time in the 7th century AD.
