A PLACE FOR THE DISPLACED
A NEW FILM PRODUCTION COMAPANY IN SCOTLAND, SEEING THE MAGIC
HAS A BRIGHT VISION OF CREATING A CREATIVE PLACE FOR THOSE DISPLACED BY WAR
We already have Ukrainian film professionals, who have resettled in Scotland, who have joined Seeing the Magic productions. We are in the process of brining in an ecletic team from similar circumstances to be the beating heart of this film production.
Everyone who joins this project gets to offer their talents in creating an exciting movie whose profits will go toward starting a new charity born of the desperate times we all live in.
