Mì-àdh (misfortune (m) in Scots Gaelic) is a short film set in the Scottish fishing harbour and beach of Crail and is about the misfortunes of an aging and unlucky fisherman determined to rid the harbour of a World War II sea mine gone astray. The mine is a curious object and apparently indestructible and unfortunately for the fisherman, the seagulls in the harbour are not helping his cause either. Tired and exhausted from his failed attempts to dispose of the mine, the fisherman's luck completely runs out... Bad things happen to good people.
Mi-adh is a short film by Kenneth Anderson made in asscoiation with The Brothers Anderson. It was shot over a weekend in 2012 on a low budget with a Sony NEX FS100 (some scenes with a Sony NEX 7). Post production was completed in 2013 using FCP7 and Adobe AE. The script, direction, production and visual effects were all completed by Kenneth to demonstrate various competencies in what is a portfolio piece.
