In conversation with Peter Mullan

A quick thanks to the team at Creative Loop, the organisation developing talent for Scotland’s creative industries, who invited me along to their Student Media Festival in Glasgow this morning.

I was asked to interview one of Scotland’s most important creative talents, Peter Mullan, in front of an audience of up-and-coming talent. We discussed his career to date, with a particular focus on NEDS, his most recent film, and the students had a chance to question him.

His main piece of advice was that people need to enjoy making films in the first instance, particularly if they’re directing, as riches don’t necessarily come their way. We only had an hour and I’m sure there was a lot more to be discussed, but hopefully the audience gained something from it.

My second interview of the week will be this Saturday at Edinburgh’s Filmhouse, where I’ll be discussing Jim Henson and his career with producer, Martin Baker.
