As I reported earlier this year, I was shortlisted to develop a 10-minute documentary with the Scottish Documentary Institute's annual programme Bridging the Gap. After three intense months of developing workshops with ten talented filmmakers and some wonderful tutors, I am delighted to announce that my project was selected as one of the four finalists!
Along with fellow Glasgow School of Art graduate Callum Rice, Edinburgh College of Art graduate Alberto Iordanov and Texan-born filmmaker Scott Calonico, I have been commissioned to make a short documentary which will premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival and later in 2015 will also air on Channel Four. It's going to be a busy, inspiring and exciting new year!
A huge thanks to everyone at the Scottish Documentary Institute, the commissioning panel, directors Jennifer Fox and Margarida Cardoso, producer Grant Keir and not least the other shortlisted filmmakers. Meeting such inspiring people has been a gift in itself! Best wishes to all for 2015 and beyond.
