The List film

By: Jennifer Tremblay

Translated by: Shelley Tepperman

Director (theatre): Muriel Romanes

Director (film): Morag McKinnon

In 2013 Stellar Quines set out to discover how a mid-scale theatre company can reach a larger audience for their work via the cinema. Restaging their award-winning Edinburgh Festival Fringe production The List, Stellar Quines commissioned BAFTA-winning film director Morag McKinnon to work alongside the company’s Artistic Director Muriel Romanes and award winning actress Maureen Beattie, to produce a cinema version of the play. Their aim was to transform the intimacy of live theatre for the big screen.

The support of a Business Innovation Exchange with Napier University secured a Scottish Funding Council Innovation Follow on Voucher which resourced further support from the Institute for Creative Industries / Screen Academy Scotland. This enabled Robin MacPherson, Director of the Institute for Creative Industries, to become executive producer for the film, which was produced in association with the Institute/Screen Academy Scotland.

Produced in association with Screen Academy Scotland at Edinburgh Napier University.
