BBC Scotland – A View from the Terrace – Put a Shift In

I’ve directed five short VT films called Put a Shift In for BBC Scotland TV show A View from the Terrace – An ‘irreverent look at the world of Scottish football.’

Each 5min VT short film follows Duncan Mckay, a football enthusiast looking at and trying out different jobs at various football clubs in Scotland. Duncan is filmed by Duncan Cowles, a miserable deadpan filmmaker who doesn’t really understand football, never having been to a match in his life…

Episode 1 – Broadcast March 1st 2019, 11pm, BBC Scotland
Episode 3 – Broadcast March 15th 2019, 11pm, BBC Scotland
Episode 5 – Broadcast March 29th 2019, 11pm, BBC Scotland (& repeated BBC One Scotland 30th March)
Episode 7 – Broadcast April 12th 2019, 11pm, BBC Scotland (& repeated BBC One Scotland 13th April)
Episode 11 – Broadcast May 10th 2019, 10.30pm, BBC Scotland (& repeated BBC One Scotland 11th May)
Episode 13 – Broadcast May 24th 2019, 10.30pm, BBC Scotland (& repeated BBC One Scotland 25th May)

So far Duncan has tried out being a club mascot, ballboy, Tannoy announcer, been part of a goalkeeper training squad for the day, been the kitman and the groundskeeper at various lower league clubs around Scotland.
