In Search of Otters by Ailsa Newton

Ailsa joined us during some very challenging weather and fully embraced the elements. As a former resident of Mull, she knew the island well and wanted to make her film about searching for otters and just how challenging it can be at times.

This short film, ‘In Search of Otters’ really conveys the anticipation and the highs and lows of finding otters. But as with everything in life, dedication, passion and persistence pays off.

Ailsa was initially reluctant to narrate her film but with some gentle persuasion, she had a go and took take after take to get it to where she was happy. The narration really pulls this film together.
