Scott Ironside, co-star of the North East’s hit film One Day Removals, is in the early stages of a production that will be half Doric and half Polish.
Find out more about the project in this week’s I Am Do Filmmaker podcast. Click the player at the bottom of this post.
Scott says the idea for Bouncing Granite developed from a short film he and Patrick made about Aberdeen’s controversial Union Terrace Gardens project. See it here (below).
The production team will include Scott and his partners in a new video production company: Quick Productions.
Scott and Patrick Wight brought Doric, the North East’s own dialect, to the big screen in the 2008 One Day Removals, written and directed by Mark Stirton.
That film is one of the region’s highest profile feature films.
Mark Stirton spends his time between London and Aberdeen. (Actually, we emailed a couple of times over Xmas 2011, but missed the opportunity for an interview while he was back in Aberdeen during the Xmas holidays. He’s working on a project which he gave very little information about… hopefully, we can hook up sometime in the near future. If you’re out there, Mark, get in touch! [Sam, ed.])
