It took me a while to understand the magic of the movies, but since then I’ve been hooked. So, together with film savvy partners, I set up a company (Big Box) to catalyse and produce quality regional screen output in the north of Scotland. We ‘capacity built’ by making training shorts (showcasing some at the Edinburgh Fringe, XPONorth and local cinemas) and this helped build a brand new film degree at the University of the Highlands and Islands. I now have two completed full scripts and love the format!
