Robin’s MFA Advanced Film Practice graduation film Hula won several awards including the BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award for Drama and the Celtic Media Festival Torc Award for Short Drama. Hula stars Blythe Duff and was made with Screen Academy Scotland alumni, producer Lindsay McGee, and writers Claire Nicol and Mandy Lee.
Since graduating, Robin has directed Slingshot, a Scottish Film Talent Network commission starring Sharon Small, with the same team behind Hula. She has directed two episodes of River City through the BBC New Directors’ Scheme and a commercial for Freak Films. She has participated in the EIFF Talent Lab, the Cove Park Filmmaking Residency and the inaugural Young Film Foundation with her feature in development, Beyond the Silent Glen.
Robin’s films focus on human connectedness, examining our relationship with self, each other and the land. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with a degree in Fine Art (Time Based Art) before working in the Scottish film and television industry for several years. After a period abroad, Robin returned to Scotland to undertake the MA in Directing and MFA in Advanced Film Practice at Screen Academy Scotland.
