Skye Filming Trip Travel 12th April Return 17th April

As mentioned today I will begin to put some links up to some of the things that we will be doing on Skye, or visiting.

We are scheduled to pick up the equipment on Wednesday 11th April at 3pm. Diana has kindly said that we can store the cameras etc at her house near Ellen Terry before leaving early the following morning from ICE. People will need to help her from the house to ICE.

We are due to return the equipment on the 18th of April in the morning.

The place we are staying is at a small Hamlet called Portnalong. The hostel is based in the old school house and is called Skyewalkers Hostel.

Ice Thursday 8th March 2.30pm-4pm

I will be in ICE from 2.30pm to 4pm. Before this I will be in ETB04 in the basement of Ellen Terry working with undergrads on their experimental films. If some of you want to see me down in ETB04 thats great it will also give you an opportunity to see some of the Undergrad work. You could even help some of the less technically proficient with their editing.

Bring your experimental pieces to ICE at 2.30pm so we can share them. I would also like to go through the details of the trip to Skye on the 12th of April.
We need to book equipment and pick it up on the Wednesday 11th before setting off the next morning.
