I have been invited to 'Event Films', an evening to showcase 3 years of film production from Flyboy Films. The event will take place on 28th January at Dundee Contemporary Arts. Dundee based 'Flyboy' was established in 2009 by John Fairfield and Ailsa Lawson as a production banner during their final year at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.

They have compiled 8 short films to date utilising the high standard of homegrown talent Scotland has to offer.
