Place Creates the Story

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.
