Latest season of BBC Tune shorts wrapped up in style

Another season of BBC Tune Shorts has been wrapped up nicely with our sixth and final episode showcasing Ayrshire rapper Bemz who was recently crowned 'Scottish Act of the Year' by BBC Introducing. Directed by Michael Sherrington and filmed on a glorious spring day at Kelburn Castle in stunning, quirky and unexpected settings. 

This season has seen us travel as far and wide as a shiel bing site, a botanic garden greenhouse, a literal dungeon, an overgrown castle ruin - oh, and we brought a piano into the Strathyre forest. Our Brooke Combe episode directed by Ainsley Bowman kicked off the season majestically with an unforgettable a capella rendition of 'Why'd You Say You Love Me'. Bathgate born Dylan Fraser blew us away by the Five Sister's Bings with back-up from an eerie myserious pink square, the episode directed by Oscar Sansom

Kieran Howe directed three episodes of the season for Misty Galactic, Sam Gellaitry and Nina Nesbitt. Sam Gellaitry took us to his favourite hidden gem near his roots in Stirling, an overgrown ruin of a castle estate now owned and managed entirely by the local community, where he performed two unusual stripped back versions of his songs 'Duo' and 'Gullible' as well as an entirely improvised track.
