Last night marked the end of filming on the Shift project for our HN Television students. 27 students from both HNC and HND have worked tirelessly over the last 8 weeks on delivering promo material for the National Theatre of Scotland event which begins tonight at Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life in Coatbridge.
“This is a superb example of multi-agency partnership working where National Theatre of Scotland, North Lanarkshire Council and Creative Scotland have endeavoured to create what is perhaps the most ambitious theatre event ever to have been staged in North Lanarkshire.
The fact that they have chosen Summerlee as the venue to host this is quite poignant when you consider the importance of Lanarkshire and how it helped shape modern day Scotland.
Our Film & TV students have been documenting the journey through rehearsals as well as following the professional actors and community cast. The TV students and the acting students who are performing have been an absolute credit to the college and it is something their respective departments are very proud of.
Key personnel within project, as well as members of the wider community with whom the students have dealt with, have been immensely impressed by the maturity, professionalism and above all, the work ethic the students have shown. The show itself promises to be a truly memorable experience and I would personally recommend anyone living in and around the North Lanarkshire area to go along and see it”
-Alan Moffat, Film & Television Lecturer.
The event runs from Thursday 29th March to Sunday 1st April. Please note that this is an outdoor event which runs in the evening so it is recommended that you dress accordingly.
