An authentic local look, feel, sound, smell and taste gives content creators the potential to develop something truly unique and exciting. This fascinating session brings together two successful creatives, a writer and a film maker, with two very different geographical backgrounds, - Lagos and South Uist. Despite these differences, both work across more than one art form, and both have place and a sense of authenticity at the core of their creative work.
