A Deeside filmmaker has described the premiere of his debut feature as a “great success”.

Kirk Watson’s ‘South of Sanity’ is the first ever fictional feature film to be made in Antarctica and the former Torphins man has been delighted with the response.

Kirk said: “The Aviemore premiere of South of Sanity was very well attended and a great success.

“The press for the film started with The Piper and “The Strathy” (Local paper to Strathspey and Aviemore area) and then went to regional papers, then national, then international.

“It ended up being the third most read about article on BBC online and we were in TIME Magazine, as well as television internationally.”

Kirk says the film will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering “who the killer is” and also gives an insight to life in a research station on the edge of the world in the darkest winter.

Filmed in a menacing yet beautiful environment, cut off from the rest of the world a killer emerges. Wonderful cinematography and the odd sense of humour in the horror situation makes it all very interesting and nail biting stuff.

South of Sanity (certificate 18) is available in DVD format or HD digital download at www.perfectviewproductions.co.uk or on Amazon.
