AROUND 120 people turned out to watch the premiere of a thriller set in the North-east.
Manifest – a 20-minute film set in areas including Aberdeen’s Hazlehead Park – was shown at the Belmont Filmhouse for the first time.
City-based film company Eternal Video, led by director and co-producer Darren Campbell, developed the film involving a cast of 15 people, with a further 15 behind the scenes.
The film was screened at the Belmont Filmhouse, with executive producer Barry Thackrey, producer Lucy Derry, director of photography Dany Horiuchi and actor John McDaide all in attendance.
Writer Chris Watt, composer and sound design Ali Campbell, and cast members Sophia Meraschino, Dan Thom, Jamie Rodden, Ruta Zukauskaite and Austyn Robb also attended the screening.
Written by Mr Watt, the film was inspired by a bar fight he witnessed.
He was struck by the crowds who did nothing to help and instead filmed the incident on their mobile phones.
Similar to Charlie Brooker’s series Black Mirror, the film follows a photographer who specialises in capturing the darker aspects of life in Aberdeen.
The film will be available to download in August.
