Film celebrates the 200th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott’s novel - Waverley Q MU MEDIA STUDENTS, Phillip Ellarby and Fausta Avizienyte, created a special time-lapse film and vox pops film at Edinburgh’s Waverley Station to help celebrate the 200th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott’s historical novel - ‘Waverley’. To mark the occasion, Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature Trust and Network Rail teamed up to stage a special exhibition at the station named after Scott’s novel. Quotes from Scott’s books, and the thoughts of the man himself, are now written across the 10 QMYOU / Creativity & Culture floors, windows and walkways of Edinburgh’s Waverley Station, bringing Scott’s words alive for a new audience. The campaign aimed not only to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Waverley, but also to mark the 10th anniversary of Edinburgh’s designation as the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature. Phillip's and Fausta’s film skilfully captured the special exhibition being installed, as well as interviews with commuters passing through Waverley Station.
