Move on Up’s first feature film, won more than sixteen major international awards and was voted one of the top three Scottish feature films of all time in a poll by Scotland’s leading entertainment magazine, The List.
The film won BEST FILM, BEST DIRECTOR and AUDIENCE AWARD at the Milan International Film Festival; the only movie ever to win all three prizes. It also won two Scottish BAFTAs and was nominated for a UK BAFTA. It starred Shirley Henderson, Dan Heydeya, Gerard Lepkowski, Danny Nucci with a wee cameo from Vincent Pastore.
It was produced by Margaret Matheson, producer of the Oscar-winning Antonia’s Line and numerous British classics including Scum and Sid and Nancy. Directed by Coutts and edited by Cameron, three regular collaborators with Move on Up also worked on the movie: Screenwriter Sergio Casci, Director of Photography Jerry Kelly and Donald Shaw of top Celtic band Capercaillie, who scored the music. Plus we were lucky to work with more top Scottish Technicians like Andy Harris (Production Design) Lynne Aitken (Costume Design) Martin Bellshaw (Sound) and many many more.
