New film for George Heriot’s school in Edinburgh

By - Richard - 4th May 2020

Two weeks before the UK was put into lockdown because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we produced a new short film for George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh.

For 360 years, George Heriot’s in Edinburgh has served as one of Scotland’s most distinguished schools. We were asked to produce a short film to convey what it means to be a Herioter.

Featuring interviews with current and former pupils, the short film was filmed across two sunny days in the heart of Edinburgh.
