The Imaginary Worlds of Scapa Flow is a 35 minute creative docu-drama inspired by memoirs of service men and women based in wartime Orkney. Memoirs are taken from three publications: ‘Scapa Flow’ by Malcolm Brown & Patricia Meehan, ‘Sky Over Scapa’ by Gregor Lamb, and ‘Bloody Orkney’ by Virginia Schroder.

The film was made during a film residency commissioned by the Scapa Flow Landscape Partnership Scheme in collaboration with the Pier Arts Centre.
x
Thirty three local people filled roles as crew, actors and voice over artistes. Filming took place in many locations around the coastline of Scapa Flow , and the Cromarty Hall as a studio for interior filming. The soundtrack was composed and played by Orcadian James Watson, who will be playing a specially composed set for the night.
x
The project was organised by the Pier Arts Centre with support from the Scapa Flow Landscape Partnership Scheme, and funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Orkney Islands Council, the Scottish Government, and the European Community Orkney LEADER 2007-2013 Programme.
