A Public Sphere for Poetry, Nature, and Politics
About this film, Duncan says, “For my second aerial film, entitled ‘Wild Scotland’, I wanted to showcase some of the wilderness this magnificent country has to offer. From the Highlands and Islands on the west coast to John O’Groats and North Berwick on the east I’ve captured just a fraction of the stunning wilderness which Scotland has to offer.
Making this film involved a series of mini adventures. Hiking up Bidein a’Ghlas Thuill at 3am in the pitch dark to film the spectacular serrated ridge of An Teallach and hearing stags roaring in the valleys below is a memory that will stay with me for a very long time. Also filming Bass Rock near North Berwick, which is home is to the world’s largest single rock Gannet colony with some 40,000 pairs of birds, at first light was a real treat.”
