New film set to whistle up publicity for coastal area

A film crew who recently shot a short film in the area were so impressed by its landscape and people that they are set to return to create a full-length movie.

Tripswitch Productions recently completed location work on "Whistle My Lad", an early 20th century story of forbidden love in a north-east fishing village and filmed at a number of villages, including Crovie, Pennan and Gardenstown.

The team is now hard at work in post-production and plan to showcase the 15-minute film, and in turn the Banffshire coast, at film festivals across the world, including Cannes, Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca next year.

Producer Chris Robb said that the generosity and helpfulness of people in the villages made the filming that much smoother.

The film will premiere at one of the film festivals, but special screenings are to be held in village halls in the area and at the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival in 2014.
