About The Series
Born out of our desire to uncover some of Europe’s most intriguing tales, Lost But Not Forgotten is a series of short films which shines light on a host of compelling stories sharing the themes of memory, time and loss. Despite this focus on the past, the project retains a contemporary edge, with each instalment exploring a topic of enduring cultural significance. Together, the short films form a unique series, applying an alternative approach to tell a range of engrossing narratives.
We wanted to create a visually arresting series that had captivating storytelling at its heart. To do this, we utilised aerial cinematography, enabling us to showcase breath-taking landscapes from a truly unique perspective. Deploying our DJI Inspire 1 Pro drone, guided by CAA certified pilot Matthew Green, we captured an array of fluid, moving shots without deviating from our signature cinematic aesthetic.
Around two billion motorists are thought to have used Spaghetti Junction over the years, but hardly any will have any idea what's here, underneath. This surprisingly beautiful film aims to change that.

Snowdonia’s bleak majesty – dark and foreboding yet edged with sunlight – has been captured on film by The Progress Film Company, in a way that RS Thomas himself might have approved.
The Progress Film Company
Progress was created by filmmakers for filmmakers.
Independent filmmaking has remained an integral part of the company’s philosophy since it’s inception. The Lost But Not Forgotten series has provided our team the opportunity to flourish as individual filmmakers, telling stories that have captured their fascination and sparked their imagination. With each film helmed by a different member of the Progress team, the series offers a true reflection of our diverse filmmaking styles.
