No Room at the Top
Cultybraggan is currently nearing the end of post production and we should be launching it onto the Festival circuit very soon!
We had an exciting week filming the archaeological dig run by Dr Iain Banks and his team from the University of Glasgow. They were searching for evidence of tunnels and have uncovered significant finds to pursue a further, more intensive investigation in the future. This makes for an intriguing final chapter in our forthcoming documentary feature on the camp and a tangible bridge between past and present. A huge thank you to Iain and his students and team.
