Director Statement

Last year, while on a grouse shoot in Scotland I nearly shot someone. A grouse flew low and fast, catching me off guard. I heard the roar of a gamekeeper shouting at me to look left. I spun and pulled the trigger. Did I see a Scotsman in my line of vision? No. Was I a regular hunter with a confident shot. Absolutely not. Did I hit the grouse and see it explode into a ball of feathers. You’re damn right.
My first and last successful shooting experience was short lived, as I took an earful from several angry Scots. My gun was confiscated, and the Scotsman I’d narrowly missed handed me the leftover remains of the stricken grouse. I felt bad and extremely bloody lucky.
This event inspired me to write the ‘The Lost Scot’, which looks at what might happen to three city boys from London, with less luck than me.
