THE GINGER ARROWS

Director: Mark Anthony Laughlin Ellison

This film is about a species of Bee (The Tree Bumble Bee - Bombus Hypnorum) that has recently migrated to Scotland from continental Europe.

I accidentally discovered a nest in my garden and became smitten with these fascinating little critters. I wanted to tell their (Tree Bumble Bees) story and show people they have nothing to fear. I spent approx. 60 hours filming the Bees, waiting patiently for the Queens to emerge and the mating season to begin.

The Film's goal is to charm and educate viewers, and to encourage people to cherish rather than fear these beautiful little critters.

UNDER THE SURFACE

Director: Tom Sweetland

“Under the Surface” is a film about an expedition off the south west coast of Cornwall by a group of environmentalists, who sought to reconnect with nature and in doing so discover the challenges facing our marine environment.  Through their shared experiences we investigate the dangers of micro plastics in our oceans and positively encourage the audience to take small steps to help change our future.
