Last night Edinburgh Napier’s Film students unveiled their final projects to family, friends and staff at the university during a screening at Edinburgh’s Filmhouse Cinema.
The event, which took place as part of #Ednapdegreeshow, included ‘Lock Stock and Barrel’- a documentary about a family-run beer company- from director Sam Williams. Elsewhere, Edinburgh Napier students Joanna McLure and Ailsa Hay showed off ‘Martime’, while Director Anna Velikova showcased ‘Pork with Pickled Cabbage’- a film based on her family’s Christmas tradition back in Bulgaria.
Also included in the show were ‘Two Worlds Apart’- a film based on a Japanese cartoon- ‘I Found These Feelings’- about an alien invader- and ‘My Story’- a documentary surrounding the life of a homeless man from Glasgow.
The films were well-received by the audience, and the students were delighted they could relax after showcasing their project.
Take a look at the video below to see some of the highlights from the event.

Here’s an example of one of her previous projects from the series – “Home Hailesland”
Sarah says about the project…
“Wester Hailes is a mildly run down area of Edinburgh, going through regeneration. This particular area of Hailesland is where I spent a great deal of time as a child, visiting and being watched over by my relatives. This series looks at the indoor and outdoor relations of the area, exploring the space and aesthetics along with people I met there. This revisitation of Hailesland allowed me to remember my past as well as evaluate this areas place in todays society.”

Her first experience with photography began when she was seven with an old child-design film camera on a family holiday and she has been enjoying learning more about the medium ever since.

Edinburgh Napier University final year photography student Sophie Mae Howie will be exhibiting new work from her final year project “Death” in the Photography BA (Hons) Degree Show & Festival of Creative Industries 2015.
Images from Sophie Mae Howie’s ongoing series “Death”.
“Death” explores places around Scotland where people have died. This series shows places where a murder, suicide, or accidental death has occurred. The photographs expose the way these places have been obscured by the passage of time and aim is to give memory to a forgotten place. The places have connections to things other than death, and therefore make it challenging for the viewer to believe death has occurred at this place.
Edinburgh Napier University final year photography student Rhian McIntosh will be showing work from “Nightmares” as part of the Photography BA (Hons) Degree Show & Festival of Creative Industries 2015.
Nightmares are a cause and effect of disturbed sleep. Rhian’s current project is a sensory exploration of her own nightmare experiences: immersing viewers into a dream world of displacement and unease.
Rhian is a Scottish photographer and filmmaker currently based in Edinburgh. Her current work combines a keen interest in both mediums, and challenges the ways in which we respond to still and moving images.
