Another project on show is Is It Me, which has been shortlisted for a Grierson Award – viewed as the Oscars of the documentary world.
Director Chris McGill said: “Is it Me is a deeply personal film to me, as it delivers that message by sharing the story of a close friend of mine, Emma Russer, and how she has dealt with body dysmorphia through the bio drag art form. She is a truly remarkable individual.
“I have been blown away by the response to the film so far, and would like to thank the staff on the MA Filmmaking course at UWS for the invaluable guidance they have given me.”
The documentary Livingston Football Club: The Rise of the Underdog, by Sports Journalism student Calum Brown, includes interviews with club legends such as Jim Leishman and Stuart Lovell, along with top journalists such as Sky Sports reporter Luke Shanley, and Superscoreboard presenter – and UWS graduate – Gordon Duncan.
UWS Commercial Music Lecturer and Arts and Media Showcase Co-ordinator Clare Duffin said: “Every year, University of the West of Scotland produces graduates who go on to achieve great things in the creative industries.
“The Student Showcase provides members of the public and the UWS community with a unique opportunity to enjoy their work as their career journey begins.
“As ever, I am blown away by the standard of work, particularly considering that it has been produced by students who have had to contend with the challenges posed by the pandemic.”
