STREET SCENE Elgin’s Street Scene - life is for looking at
Wildbird is creating a large-scale city-centre outdoor public exhibition, showcasing 50 short film pieces in as many windows, in the heart of the city of Elgin. Partnered up with Moray Chamber of Commerce, Elgin B.I.D. (Business Improvement District), Moray Council and local newspaper The Northern Scot, with core funding from Creative Scotland, we are celebrating the people who live, work and play in and around Elgin.
A pop-up green-screen studio in the town soon will invite the public to share their story, with the aid of a director and film-maker, to produce short digital video pieces that will be presented in December along the length of the central pedestrian area by being back projected into windows. The exhibition will be built up over a number of nights, eventually transforming the whole street into a gallery containing up to 50 ‘pictures’. This project, entitled ‘Street Scene’, will attract people from all around the region as well as nationally to come to what will be a unique public gallery space in the run up to Christmas 2014. It is hoped it will play a significant part in attracting locals and visitors to Elgin during the Christmas period, and increasing footfall in this crucial festive period.
