Commissioned by Creative Scotland and the BBC for the Cultural Festival accompanying the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Virginia Heath’s current research project, “From Scotland With Love”, takes the form of a 75 minute poetic documentary film created entirely from archive film material which Heath researched over several months in the National Library of Scotland / Scottish Screen Archive. It is a purely visual narrative with music sound track and will be accompanied by a live music performance curated by composer King Creosote (aka Kenny Anderson), who was Mercury Prize nominated for his album with Jon Hopkins, “Diamond Mine”.
Heath’s approach as a filmmaker to the creative process is investigating new territory in the way she works with the composer / lyricist, King Creosote. In the process of making the film, she was exploring themes and creating fragments of visual material, which were then responded to by the composer and musicians, returned to the editing room for further visual development and sent back to composer. In this way, the fabric of the film was created and developed in an iterative process between the visual and musical writing of the material. The project will culminate in a major, high profile performance during the Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival on the 31st of July 2014 along with a screening on BBC2.
