|Rehearsing for the National Theatre of Scotland film|
I broke the morning routine to go downstairs to catch our five minute section of the National Theatre of Scotland's fiveminutetheatre at 6.55 this morning. It was running a few minutes behind schedule, and my broadband speed was appalling; so instead I caught snatches of disconnected movement and odd still images from our Angus film, which had been created last month as one single 5 minute take at the Community Hall on the island of Berneray. I noted that 69 other people were watching....

our five minute film,
This 5 minute film isn't an extract or even a compilation of moments from our 'Angus' show. It's no more, nor less, than just one of the things we created as part of a very short research and development period on the Uists. Doing it was very useful - giving us at least a very clear goal and focus during the three days we were all together on the islands. Thank you, NTS, for allowing a Lancashire-based company to participate in the celebrations of your first, very exciting, five years. May there be many more!
