Doric movie to have online screening

HAILED as possibly the most profane Scottish feature film ever, an independent movie, shot in the north-east Scotland dialect of Doric, is to have a special online screening this weekend.

‘One Day Removals’, written and directed by Aberdeen-based Mark Stirton, stars local comic, Patrick Wight, and Scott Ironside who accidentally find themselves responsible for a van full of dead bodies during the course of ‘one very bad day’.

The movie is to be shown in its entirety by from today until Monday.

Dailymotion is said to have approached the filmmakers after their nomination for a British Independent Film award in November.

Also on the site are several short documentaries covering the making of the movie, including a clip containing all the swearing called the ‘Sweary Movie Edit’, following an article early last year in the Daily Record, by local correspondent, Bob Dow.

With 320 mentions of the ‘F-word’, Dow placed ‘One Day Removals’ ahead of ‘Sweet Sixteen’ (with 313 mentions) as the Scottish film with the most swearing, ever.

‘Sweet Sixteen’ stood at No.6 in Dow’s top 20, worldwide listing of sweary movies.

Stirton Productions is now approaching distribution companies to release the movie in the UK, and hopes that the publicity surrounding the online screening will play a part in securing a deal.

‘One Day Removals’ is a co-production between Stirton Productions and The Canny Film Partnership Limited.
