Storm by Tom Hanmer
Showing as part of the The Sea, the Sea exhibition until Saturday 10 July.
Award-winning film maker and Director of Photography, TOM HANMER, has worked in many genres including fashion, music, advertising and narrative film. He is drawn to the world’s wild places. Despite working and traveling around the world, Scotland remains one of his favourite locations.
Tom Hanmer filmed Storm in Melness on the North Coast of Scotland in winds exceeding 100 mph. It was shot using cutting-edge equipment and finished in ultra-high definition. Despite the dangers these conditions provide a bounty to the gulls.
This stunning short film combines footage of the wildest of Scottish waves with the extraordinary agility and courage of the gulls. Watch the film alongside Janette Kerr’s drawing and paintings of light and weather conditions in the Shetland Isles. The film is playing on a loop in the first-floor gallery. No need to make an appointment to come and view the film or the exhibition.
