Kinetic Edinburgh captures city landmarks in stop-motion


A new stop-motion film by an award winning Edinburgh film-maker has captured some of the city's famous landmarks.

Walid Salhab, 52, is a lecturer at Queen Margaret University and his first short film Bra-et Al Rouh (Innocence of the Spirit), about a six year old girl who befriends a homeless man on the streets of the city, won two awards at the Cannes Film Festival.

He has now released the stop-motion and time lapse piece Kinetic Edinburgh online. It forms a taster to his new project about a banker who has fallen on hard times.

Mr Salhab said: "I put some shots together to get a reaction and it's been overwhelming. I've got emails from Australia, I've got emails from Scots all over the world ... it's just an amazing reaction."
