One Scottish success story meets another. A few weeks ago we took a call from the office of the phenomenon that is Blipfoto. Back in November they launched a new project; Scotland – the world over. And, like everything connected with Blip it’s been a colossal success and the planned film is being previewed at Edinburgh’s New Year party and possibly Glasgow, before its proper launch. The reason for the call was they wanted to use the song Tu-Bardh for the piece.
This week the finished film was launched upon an expectant public and you can have a sneak-peek below.
The big news is that on Sunday the 5th of February at 2pm the film will be shown on the big BBC screen on Festival Square in Edinburgh and again on the side of Buchanan Galleries in Glasgow at 7pm that night. The even bigger news is Clanadonia will be performing with the film at the Edinburgh event so worth coming down, even if you’re not a Blipper. It also happily coincides with the Calcutta Cup weekend, the game being played the day before at Murrayfield, so there’s going to be a lot of (hopefully disappointed) English fans wandering about thinking we’re laying the old patriotism on a bit thick for their benefit. As if.
