Abstract

This Methods-in-Action case study outlines the process of developing an animated film to disseminate research into the lived experiences of welfare reform. As part of a commitment to including aspects of participatory research within an Economic and Social Research Council–funded study (‘The Lived Experiences of Welfare Reform’), the researcher worked with a film-maker and some of her research participants to develop and produce a short animated film. The film was designed to explore key findings from the research project and was one output from the research. This case study explores the reasoning behind including this participatory element in the broader research project and outlines how the film was made, and how participants were involved in this process. Importantly, the particular challenges and potentials with using film-making techniques in this context are also explored. These potential advantages and disadvantages are closely linked to broader issues around including aspects of participatory research within research studies.
