"The project I am pitching today is a TV series.
A supernatural murder mystery set in East Lothian beginning with the death of a curator who has moved up from London to start a private gallery (Dunbar being directly connected to London,) but is essentially about art and hauntings, also centre and periphery."

The project has involved multiple research and field recording trips, including visiting the Goblin Ha' in Gifford, an underground vault long rumoured to have been built by goblins at the behest of a sorcerer, and attending a ghost hunt at Newhailes House in Mussleburgh. This research led to a self-organised residency in Whittingehame, East Lothian in December 2019 and a subsequent night of perfomances in March 2020 and an upcoming collaborative publication.
East Lothian Gothic is an ongoing project, the main part of which is a 6-part radio play. It is about three allegorical characters' attempts to make a supernatural crime drama TV series of the same name.
