A Director’s Lab Presentation from award-winning filmmaker Margaret Salmon on her film for ‘Shore: How We See the Sea’, a touring multi-arts and science project reflecting Scotland’s coastal communities’ responses to Marine Protected Areas. Margaret discussed the research and production of ‘Cladach’ – a film that revolved around a single community in Ullapool, particularly along the shoreline of a the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area and sparked questions around our relationship with the sea. Margaret also talked through her approaches to community storytelling, analogue underwater cinematography, sound and music in natural history documentaries, and observational techniques in 35mm film production.
