More videos: suggestions welcome!
Funding applications, some already successful and others ongoing, mean that a start can be made on a second series of videos to complement those already done – http://www.languages.dk/archive/video_data/Scottish_Island_Voices.pdf.
There will probably be a broad (though not exclusive) “environmental” theme in the second series. Appeals in the local press and other local contacts have generated interest, and suggested topics so far include the following:
Tourism and Hospitality/visitor centres
Outdoor leisure activities (surfing etc)
Right now we’re having beautiful weather, and I’ve already got some nice pictures. The plan is to follow the same format of the original series: short scripted “plain language” documentary introductions, together with authentic speech “talking head” interviews. Anyone reading this, particularly if they’re at some distance from here, is welcome to get in touch with further suggestions or comments.
