‘It was wonderful to go to the Church and see its magnificent stone circle lit up as I was approaching. Such superb use of lighting reflecting on the 4,000 year old stones’.
Elspeth McKay Minister of Mid Mar and Echt Parish Churches.

On a mild winter’s night we made the trip out to an ancient place of worship, The Stones and Kirk of Midmar,  where there was also a graveyard to get creative with.

 

 I had a hope to recreate a Dr Who story “The Stones of Blood ” and the group did just that. A colour changing light sabre, the toddler group’s bunny light, a wind up torch and pound shop push lights all helped to create an ethereal feel.

Then we brought out the colour….

The stones became a rainbow, ectoplasm abounded and poor bunny was slung round on a rope to create coloured orbs.

All done on bulb setting with  long exposure remotes.

Experience was shared and learners learned.
