Filmmaker Interview #61 – Andrew Cumming

Andrew & CameraI met Andrew Cumming on the Edinburgh International Film Festival Talent Lab this year and instantly hit it off. Andrew is a very professional guy; full of passion and determination plus he’s talented as hell. Having watched the films he made at the National Film and Television School I was stunned (and a little intimidated). He is one of the strongest directorial voices I have seen coming out of Scotland and I urge you to track down his shorts Beneath and Radiance.

I’m delighted to host an interview with Andrew here on the blog and hope that you will take the time to check out the films, links and content below, it is definitely worth your time. I will point specifically to the advice he gives to first time filmmakers at the end of the interview, it’s vital.  Read more of this post
