Moving Image Arts

Moving Image Arts is an AS level that looks in depth at film technique, history and lets students apply this to their own film.

Screen Education Edinburgh have a strong record in the delivery of the course, with 64% of students on the course here going on to study film in Further and Higher education, and others finding places in the industry. We believe that this is a tremendous opportunity where students are guaranteed to make their own films.

The course is free and open to anyone between the ages of 16 and 21 in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, and we have several final spaces remaining on the course before it begins on Tuesday 1 October. Students are not required to have made a film before, but an interest would be useful.

Check out their website for more information and the application forms: https://screen-ed.org/moving-image-arts/

Alice Boyle “COMING ALIVE”

In Association with Linlithgow Burgh Halls; Alice Boyle Presents ‘COMING ALIVE’.

Go with your feelings – and embrace the sheer joy of these works – Giles Sutherland – The Times – 2017

Expect to be challenged, emotionally touched and frequently amused – Vivien Devlin – ArtMag – 2017

I’m sure this vivacious and engaging woman will continue to produce more evocative collections – Phyllis McLeish – Ayrshire Magazine 2016

Coming Alive is a new body of work by Edinburgh-based artist, Alice Boyle. For many years, Boyle has sketched after daily meditation, creating odd and often distorted creatures that come streaming to mind as soon as the pencil hits the paper.  In the spring of 2018 she decided to bring these characters to life, creating a unique world that is as strange as it is familiar.

Boyle’s new work has been inspired by the title of the artist’s previous exhibition, ‘Think Less, Feel More’. While her past show was a comment on the relationship between thinking and feeling and what that might look like, here, Alice has chosen to take a less complex approach, and run with an idea that felt powerful yet simple.
