Stay the Same


Home

Stay the Same is a meditation on time, mortality and our desire to capture and record experience.

To make the film Sam filmed every day for a year, at exactly the same time, in exactly the same place on the shore of Loch Nevis from June 2011 to June 2012.

The resulting film premiered at the BFI London Film Festival, has toured film festivals around the world and was featured on BBC Scotland. Click here for reviews of the film.

This website is a record of Sam’s experience making the film, responses she collected to the project,  related films and material she found along the way: an online creative notebook for the film.

If you want to read more you can search the archives, browse by date or type of posting, or start HERE. There are also screeningdates , reviews more info on the film, about Sam or the location.

And also after a long journey,  you can now watch final film.

 

“Stay the Same, captures Firth’s changing environment over the year  . . .  a striking contrast between the filmmaker’s momentary emotions and the ever present rocks, tides and landscape.”

“Out of simplicity comes great complexity – it’s very beautiful,  moving too” 

Clio Barnard, director of The Selfish Giant

“A hauntingly beautiful meditation on time, solitude and isolation.”

Matt Munro, Glasgow Short Film Festival
