Niall Morison MacRae, City of Glasgow College
Originally hailing from The Isle of Lewis, I am an aspiring filmmaker now based in Glasgow where I’ve been studying for the past 3 years. My talents lie firmly within camera, where utmost beauty within every frame is at the heart of the storytelling whether it be dramatic or factual. This approach to filmmaking has already landed one of my short films with a prime slot at last year’s Screenplay – Shetland’s annual film festival, curated by film historian Linda Ruth Williams and film critic Mark Kermode – where it was incredibly well received.
