This is a clip from the BBC Scotland feature documentary by Eric Steel (THE BRIDGE), featuring animated sequences by Em Cooper.

The film tells the story of reclusive Scottish fishing-fly maker, Megan Boyd, who spent her life alone in a desolate cottage on the north eastern coast of Scotland, tying ever more beautiful fishing flies. Her work became famous and can now be seen in museums and collections, all over the world.

The feature documentary is woven with hand-painted animated sequences by Em Cooper, imagining Megan's inner world as she ties her flies. The animation was produced by Sue Loughlin at Film Club Productions.

The film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in the USA and Edinburgh Film Festival in the UK.
