The film Stay the Same documents the process of it’s own creation – making the film meant I couldn’t leave the remote peninsular of Knoydart for more than 23 hours at a time, which meant I couldn’t get very far.
The film is a video diary with no words. This blog is a written document of the process and a much more in depth rendering of the emotional journey in the film.
