On March 28th 2018 Andrew was awarded 1st place in the Scottish Nature Video Award 2017

The Scottish Nature Video Award 2017 was judged by wildlife cameraman Raymond Besant and organiser Niall Irvine. Andrew Macdonald, a freelance filmmaker from Biggar, Lanarkshire, won the award with "Reforesting Planet Caledon". Captured with a 360° camera, "Little Planet" imagery offers a unique perspective of the reforesting efforts of Royal Society for Protection of Birds on their Abernethy reserve.

Judge Niall Irvine said: “Andrew’s video immediately grabbed the judges’ attention with its visual impact. As the story unfolds, we were struck by the effective blending of the visuals with the narrative.The film is essentially about a local project in terms of the reforesting ambitions of the RSPB on their Abernethy Reserve, but the ‘Little Planet’ imagery also made us think globally.”

Since 2010 the Scottish Nature Photography Awards has provided a platform to celebrate Scotland as a key destination for nature photographers and now extends that spotlight onto nature filmmakers through the annual Scottish Nature Video Award for short nature films taken in Scotland by professional or amateur filmmakers from around the world.

Winning videos will go on an exhibition tour along with the winners from the Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year competition from July 2018. Details at  www.scottishnaturephotographyawards.com

Andrew is excited about the applications of 360° film, particularly for Exhibit Scotland. Interested in Andrews ideas and applications for 360° imagery, in 2017 a Californian VR company involved with filming Transformers 5 360° content, supplied Andrew with a suite of their 4K Pro-cameras, pushing Exhibit Scotland beyond the technological reach of most competitors.

Andrew provides support to his clients, from project inception to completion, to ensure high quality outputs to suit their needs. Drawing on his experience, working in all weathers with diverse people & fascinating groups with wide ranging needs, abilities & stories, Andrew works hard to support those in front of the camera, to tell their story well!

"I have developed a unique complementary skill set, through my experience of countryside management, social care & multi-media productions"

"I seek to continually improve my production skills. Each project provides learning, new challenges & opportunities for me to develop my approach."
