Legacy of an Invisible Bullet: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Doug Aubrey...



For the latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast Ali was joined by BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Doug Aubrey to talk about Legacy of an Invisible Bullet, which is described as "an immersive 10 ½ hour cinematic experience" compiled of 170 short films shot by Doug, which is going to be shown over six days at the Glasgow Film Theatre, culminating in a UK premiere of the feature-length cut, which he describes as an "existential surf movie."

Doug goes into detail about the project, which ranges from his early days capturing the 1970s punk scene through his time documenting disaster zones across the world, as well as his own personal disaster following a thyroid cancer diagnosis, piecing together a cinematic mosaic 50 years in the making.


The two also talk about the importance of sound as well as vision, the effects of people's changing viewing habits, the importance of the short film as a medium, who has inspired him over the years, and a whole lot more.


It's an insightful and inspirational conversation with someone who is steeped in film, and whose longevity gives him an overview of filmmaking which is rare. Hopefully it will convince you to visit the GFT and experience Doug's work for yourself.
