This paper considers located media production as a means for self representation and storytelling in local community settings. We present a pilot set of workshops in a local neighbourhood in Bristol, UK. Through a consideration of the workshop process and the resulting �mediascapes� (located sound and images) we highlight a number of observations and questions which have emerged regarding the relationship of story to place in collaboratively produced located media. The software used to develop this work has been developed by the Mobile Bristol project, an association of Hewlett Packard Research Laboratories, Bristol, the University of Bristol and the Applicance Studio.( www.mobilebristol.com).
