Historic Scotland with John Duncan Video

Last week Coolbox lent a hand to fellow Edinburgh filmmaker John Duncan Video to shoot an event for Historic Scotland.

The day involved the crew heading to Torphichen Primary School just outside Edinburgh, to film a class of school kids who've been learning all about local landmark Cairnpapple Hill. It was used from about 3,000 BC to 1400 BC firstly as a ceremonial site then several centuries later as a burial site.

We filmed the class as they showed their parents around various exhibits about the landmark, and took part in activities relating to what they had learnt (weaving, clay pot making, bread making, etc). The kids were fantastic, we were totally bowled over by their knowledge of the subject, and just how articulate they were when we interviewed a few of them.
