Featured Artist: Gibbet FX

I’m Calum MacDonald and I run Gibbet FX which specialises in the creation of models, props and Special FX work for film, TV and theatre. I’ve been working in this field for the last 15 years having originally trained in stop-motion animation before venturing into the varied environs of SFX. It’s the appeal of creating the unusual and the weird and wonderful that drives me and I’ve had the pleasure of working for clients who want something “a little bit different”. Life-sized dinosaurs, huge gargoyles, trauma injuries – no two projects are ever the same!

I also felt that while learning my craft, there seemed to be a lack of training opportunities within this field particularly in Scotland, so I decided to start running training courses from my studio for those who had an interest in developing their skills in these particular areas.
The courses cover a wide range of different topics from Special FX makeup and prosthetics, sci-fi and fantasy prop and model making to creature design. Courses vary in length from 2 days – 6 days and are suitable for all levels of experience.

For more information visit the Gibbet FX website or follow us on Facebook.

Call out for Edinburgh Contributors

My name is Callum and I am a Scottish Arts Producer currently doing some work for the Swiss Arts Council.

The project I am working on is called “21”, and is essentially a video exhibition that explores memory, asking people of all ages to share memories from when they were aged 21.

People who decide to contribute will be asked to take part in an interview in April and a follow up meeting in July, both in Edinburgh. A film resulting from this process will be exhibited at Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

If you have any questions about anything, please do get in touch. My email is: cwmadge@gmail.com

Featured Artist: Rebecca Holloway

I’m Rebecca Holloway, a recent graduate from Edinburgh College of Art. I think of my work as various reconstructions of experiences, sightings, and imaginings. As such, it is specific to certain details and thereby acknowledges the selectivity of attention and memory. My approach to painting follows this, by playing with traditional oil painting techniques, exposing and brightening under layers. I use the work to study how singular images can be brought together to provoke a sense of atmosphere and coherent space. Through this, I intend to involve the viewer in acts of introversion and examination, providing a chance to slow down.
