A reminder why Minefield is a film that I just have to complete by all means necessary!
“The socialism I believe in is everyone working for each other,
Everyone having a share of the rewards.
It’s the way I see football, the way I see life.”

George Square 1919 -1990

With the current ¬†redesign of ¬†Glasgow’s George Square put on hold for reasons that have more to do with dirty-politics then Glasgow and it’s people, here’s a film I made in 1990 with the legendary/mythical/Rewind foot-notes and video artists Pictorial Heroes.

George Square was commissioned by Channel 4 as part of Glasgow’s year of culture and a time in history when the walls between East and West were tumbling down. ¬†It’s a short film dedicated to Glasgow, it’s people and a very special place with a history that the developers and politicians are trying to bury beneath a neo-liberal themepark. ¬†Share and enjoy!

George Squared

16th January 1999,
Cape Wrath Scotland

A place where Europe starts or ends. ¬†It also happened to be the end of a shoot that had started in Sarajevo and been going on since 1995 on the digital feature¬†Victim of Geography. It¬†was also my 40th birthday. ¬†The Footage ¬†has very rarely been seen and was ¬†shot with my old S8mm camera – that died shortly afterwards. ¬†It shows Shaman/Wanderer and Psycho-Geographer Marshall Anderson burning the remains of a wild goose he’d found on a beach. ¬†We’d walked to the point where Europe runs out and had spent most of the trip watching and filming the RAF practising their bombing runs for wars we’ve all been a part of ever since.

Kurdi updates

In March 2013 , it will be 10 years since we began filming Kurdi in Glasgow, ¬†just before the start of the war in Iraq. ¬†So, I’m looking to get this ¬†Scottish BAFTA nominated feature film¬†up on to Distrify in the next few weeks, along with a number of other titles from my back catalogue. In the meantime here’s the original pilot we shot in Kurdistan: Peshmarga ¬†(Those Who Die First) ¬†It’s¬†more of ¬†a hybrid between a short-film and an extended trailer really, rather than a conventional cinema trailer.

Kurdi  can also currently be seen on VOD at  IndeFlix:   http://indieflix.com/film/kurdi-32624/
