Marie Shaw, of Aberdeen City and Shire Film Office, is now an administrator on the IADF Facebook page.
She’s a powerhouse of ideas and enthusiasm for film – I should know, I’ve sat in a meeting and seen her in action.
If you have a film to shoot in the city or shire then she can help you find locations props etc.
She also made a FB post about looking for footage of the beautiful landscapes we have here in the north east. That kind of stuff helps her market what we have here and gives people an idea of the diversity they’ll find.
…if anyone hires the car camera mount [from Peacock Visual Arts – listen to Iain Gildea’s podcast on this site: http://bit.ly/snPDbq] then the City & Shire Film office needs footage of our amazing roads. Maybe mountains to sea car advert style for our website. Sorry we cant pay but would give full credits etc on website. enquiries@filminginscotlan
Marie’s the contact for location scouts on movies and adverts (anyone who’s looking for a location really). It wouldn’t surprise me to find lots of productions which have taken place in Scotland recently – we’ve read about them in the papers and seen them on the news – have contacted Marie in the past.
So, she’s a supporter of I Am Do Filmmaker. Another reason to stop by at the site regularly.
