WHAT WE DID
In participatory style, media co-op facilitated a series of workshops for Nessie, Nancy and Mary Alice to create their own film. They learned how to operate the camera and sound kit, they came up with the concept, script and cast. media co-op supported them throughout the production.
And meanwhile … behind the screens ….
The launch of the film was standing room only event. The project also got lots of media coverage including an 11 minute feature on STV, and feature articles in the Evening Times and the Daily Record. During the Commonwealth Games 2014 the film was projected on to local windows.
