The castles around this area make for great sets, as most will accommodate film makers, But i dont think ghost hunting is my thing ;) . When I get some footage from the short I will be uploading clips to this site to get a bit off feedback.

Hi Chris

I live not far in Cumbernauld.
I am new to this video shooting. History is my thing and I have upgraded from a Canon XM1 to XL2. I would like to get some tips from someone with more knowledge in filming.

Hi

Hi Chris and Alex above. I live in Larbert which cant be far from alex. Do you know of a good club for video nuts like us in the glasgow are. I dont mean the sort of club where they hold a pic competition once a year and the rest of the nights they just practice one upmanship and brag about the equipment they have.
I was once in a club like that in Fife

Hello from a fellow scotsman in Hong Kong

Hi guys, it's been a while since I lived in Scotland, but it's good to know the indie film thing is doing good there. I am originally from Glasgow, but I have been living in Hong Kong since 1992. I am running a small production company here, you can go to my website to find out more www.glowproductionhouse.com Any way I am orginizing an outdoor film festival here in April 06 and I would be glad to find out more about your films for the coming festival.

Welcome Collaborators in Scotland

Hello Friends,
This is my first post, I have been here gleening for a while. I thought perhaps I might plead my case on the DV info court. I look forward to hearing from anybody interested or has had similar project experiences.
Firstly, this my first earnest attempt at producing, directing, editing etc. a professional quality DV project. Without the specific story details, let me say I'm involved in an international filming documentary that has me presently editing DV footage from Kimberton Hills, PA. USA. The bulk of the documentary is on two locations in Scotland. The Aberdeen location and the Stirling, Scotland locations have required me to seek out collaborators. I began posting at Scottish film sites as well as the Universities' student boards. I have requested filmmakers as well as a DOP, photography will be needed at the sites as well. I have received offers to help from sound and voice professionals and a few individuals that have photo experience on independent shorts. The documentary is historical in nature, but I am using selected music from resident Scots as well as a Canadian guitarist. I will hope to complete the location filming by May.The media then will be sent in hard copy to me in the States where I will attempt to extract my vision from it. I would appreciate hearing from those who have has similar projects completed and those in Scotland that might want to shoot some DV for a day at each location. I can offer credit and copy for your efforts. I will also like a couple DV cameras available to shot a live session at Clyde FM radio, in Glasgow. I hope the talent will have a few songs to duet and chat with our interviewer. That footage will be provided as "Extra Features" on the DVD. Thanks for letting me bend your ear...
Adios,
Christo Aaron

Glasgow filmmaker!

Hey all!

My name is Fraser (obvious from my username hehe) and I'm in Scotland, just outside Glasgow. I studied HND Television operations and productions at James Watt College in 2004 and I was at the BBC's Training program "E-Force" in 2003.

I've made three short films to practice my skills and I'm developing my feature film "The Journey" which we'll be shooting on mini DV this summer in Scotland.

Obviously my company Silly Wee Films hasn't made a big name for itself yet because we just started out in September last year but I hope that people might take me more seriously once we complete "The Journey". It's been really diffilcult getting money for it, and we're confident we'll be able to shoot it for 20,000. I've got a great experienced team on board and the actors are great, so fingers crossed we'll be able to make something great. Obviously it's my debut feature film so I'm not expecting it to be a massive hit, but as long as people can enjoy it for what it is, the actors get show-reel material out of it (and hopefully more work!) and I learn from it, then that's all that matters, right?

Anyway, I agree with Andrew Graham of Camerashy (a great production company in Edinburgh!) that we all should do our best to help each other out, and I'm more than willing to help people out if I can :)

I hope to speak to you all soon

- Fraser

Fraser, Need any help?

Hi Fraser,

I'm an experienced videographer who will be visiting Edinburgh in July or August 06....Was wondering if you need an extra hand...Also was wondering about the International Festival, and/or the Fringe Festival. I believe these are held in late August.

Thinking about documenting some of this on my own, or as a collaboration. Basically looking for a "working vacation".

Any ideas or offers?
Thanks.
