SILVER CITY SOUL - 2 FILMS FOR NATIONAL GALLERIES SCOTLAND

An innovative community portrait project that searches for the soul of Aberdeen - one of Scotland’s most historic cities.

Film 1 (above) - Through contrasting the intimate with urban vistas I created a portrait of the City of Aberdeen.  The film was exhibited at the National Galleries Scotland, Edinburgh and Aberdeen Art Gallery.

Music by the magnificent Tommy Perman: surfacepressure.net

Film 2 (above) - A sequence of short vignettes with local volunteers and workers. A counterpoint to the first film, this work puts the voice of Aberdeen to the fore.

This film was researched and made by our core participants:
George C. Fulton
Murdoch MacLeod
Helen Paterson
Mike Webster
Richard Wood

Directed by: Adam Proctor

A National Galleries of Scotland education outreach project in partnership with Aberdeen City Council (Arts Development Team & Aberdeen Art Gallery).
