During the creation of this film, I learned a shitty but important lesson.
Backup, backup, backup.
I climbed Arthur’s Seat earlier in the week for the first time in my life, and caught the most beautiful sunset on my camera.
Then when I got home, I accidentally unplugged my computer halfway through an upload, and lost all of the footage.
So, I climbed Arthur’s Seat again on Saturday but there was no actual sunset this time (it happened behind a cloud), and also… I had a bad cold, so I couldn’t stop sniffing.
SO NOW THE FILM IS CALLED TISSUES BECAUSE THAT’S ALL I WANTED. That, and to not lose my work.
Tip-to-self 1: BACKUP, BABE.
Tip-to-self 2: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or make an honest film in which you are frustrated by a seriously runny nose, and you only make it halfway up the hill, but you still feel triumphant when you find a tissue in your pocket.
