PROJECT DETAILS

Tales of the City was an arts project delivered across Edinburgh Libraries in 2009 to encourage young people to engage with creative arts.  I was hired as a filmmaker to document the project and also to facilitate workshops with young people across Edinburgh.  I worked with various Edinburgh Libraries and organisations such as the Canongate Youth Project  to engage young people with filmmaking and to use it as way to tell a story inspired by their lives in Edinburgh.

The films varied from “mock-rockumentary”, documentary and drama. The film Johnny: Hero To Zero was accepted to be shown at the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s School’s Competition.
