Now this is a short film I’m looking forward to seeing when it’s completed. It’s called Boat, and it’s set in a post-apocalyptic Edinburgh, with the city under water. There are some stirring scenes with a submerged Prince’s Street and a crumbling Balmoral Hotel.

It’s being made by David Lumsden, who lives in Slateford just down the road from me somewhere, and there’s a lot of other local talent involved too.

There’s a good piece about it in our local, paper, The Edinburgh Evening News: The citys under water in a movie to float your boat.
