commuting with ghosts

SHORT FILM FOR BBC CAPITAL (2018)

"There are stories from a thousand years ago that surround you as you move through the islands."

We travelled to Orkney to film County Archaeologist Julie Gibson and hear all about her atmospheric commute to work.  Julie travels by boat from her home on the island of Rousay to Kirkwall on the Orkney mainland.  The Orkney islands are awash with archaeology and her commute between the islands is haunted by the ghosts of Viking Pirates.
