Animated Argyll – Screen Argyll
Screen Argyll is a new company that Jen Skinner and Jack Lockhart of Tiree and myself have formed to promote film in Argyllshire. We’ll be promoting film screenings, education and outreach work throughout the county.
One of the first Screen Argyll workshop projects is Animated Argyll. Working with Jim Parkyn of Aardman, we delivered workshops on Coll, Tiree, Mull, Lismore, in Oban and Dunoon. I was only able to help delivery on Tiree, as I had Understanding Cinema commitments to meet elsewhere. The films that we made were testaments to life in the communities we visited.
The Tiree film won an award at the Scottish Youth Film Festival.
