Trailer for the 35 min film - 'The Imaginary Worlds of Scapa Flow'.
Written, filmed and edited by Mark Jenkins.

This film was made during a film residency, using locations, actors and crew from Orkney, and was inspired by memoirs of service men and women based in Orkney during both world wars. The music was composed and played by Orcadian James Watson.

Come to the premiere - 1st September 2012 at the Cromarty Hall, St. Margaret's Hope, Orkney.

The residency was developed and managed by the Pier Arts Centre with the Scapa Flow Landscape Partnership Scheme. It ran for twelve weeks (spread over 6 months). Memoirs are taken from three publications: 'Scapa Flow' by Malcolm Brown & Patricia Meehan, 'Sky Over Scapa' by Gregor Lamb, and 'Bloody Orkney' by Virginia Schroder.

The aim of the project was to create a new work of art that would celebrate aspects of the cultural heritage of Scapa Flow in collaboration with community partners across the area. Find out more about the project here:
