Scottish Students on Screen

I recently presented a talk at the CCA in Glasgow on the process of creating my short film Battenberg and my collaberation with the Digicult Company.

SSoS is a one day festival designed to foster stronger links between education and the moving image industries. SSoS is managed by BAFTA and funded by Scottish Screen, and has been running a innovative programme of events for the past 11 years. 2010 promises to be another fantastic day full of exciting sessions, screenings, workshops and masterclasses providing all you need to know about getting into the industry.

SSoS 2010 will take place on Tuesday 16 March from 10am - 5pm and tickets should be booked in advance via the CCA box office on 0141 352 4900.

Trailer for my Short film Battenberg


Colliding with the dusty window of an abandoned guest-house, an unwitting bird fails to realise the curious horror lurking within.

Hidden inside, a strange dual universe awaits the accidental visitor. Amid the disorientating, skewed d├ęcor, indiscernible creatures scuttle, jars teem with dark mystery and a shadowy presence resides with ambiguous motives, ready to lure us into it’s rooms of curiosity.



Stewart Comrie developed, directed and animated Battenberg in 2009 through Digicult’s Scottish Digital Shorts programme. The film was funded by Scottish Screen and the UK Film Council in association with BBC Scotland.
