We have been quietly capturing some of the Tales from our live events on film in a variety of different ways. This will provide a more permanent legacy, a chance for a wider audience to see these tales and will give us content for future plans for a “Pop up” Museum. This has been done using a range of local amateur and professionals establishing themselves and one of the projects functions has become to provide material and a platform for artists of all sorts to develop and practice their skills and artistry.
Some of this work was showcased at the first public premiere of “Tales on Film” which was held at the Henry Travers studio at the Maltings on Wednesday 18th November.
It featured 4 tales: The Monks of Dryburgh (with input from the Duns Players), The Faithful Wife (which won our young film makers awards at the Berwick 2013 Film and Media Festival), The Vacant Chair (Wilson’s first published tale) and finally The Monomaniac a drama shot on location at Paxton House.
