Hero’s Praise for Filmmaker

AN AMATEUR filmmaker from north Edinburgh has won high praise from one of his heroes.

Muirhouse-based Garry Fraser, 28, was sitting outside the Filmhouse on Lothian Road advertising his latest production when acclaimed filmmaker Shane Meadows approached him.

The pair went for a drink in a local pub, where Meadows told Mr Fraser, a Telford College student, that he had a bright future after watching one of his productions.

The filmmaker said: "Is this unbelievable or what? He said I was a good writer and director."
