Just published my film ‘SURFACE’ for viewing on line. I made the film in 2014. It started as a test for another project, but when I was nearly taken in under a wave one day at Birsay, I had another idea……


“Surface” is an experimental docu-drama and one of the biggest surprises of the festival. Mark Jenkins’ stunning film is shot with a GoPro camera around the waters of Orkney. The versatile camera allows the audience to go anywhere, from skimming across the sand to diving below the lapping waves. “Surface” is a truly unique audiovisual experience as the film travels around the islands capturing the sights of the land and the distorted sounds of the sea. The seamless editing gives the illusion of a single take whilst the music reinforces this inspiring journey of reflection. – XpoNorth, Inverness 2015
