To embark on the making of a feature film is sheer madness. Yet some of us cannot help but be driven to engage with this form by adopting creative and managerial methods, routines, processes and discourses that help us navigate our way towards creating some kind of impact. In Method In Madness: a case study in practice research methods, I seek to describe and articulate an example of a film project as research, with a particular emphasis on looking at how documentation and critical reflection form the core methodology of the project. In the madness that is filmmaking, how can methodology and method be employed to provide the basis for rigour in the research enquiry?
