A FREE one day cinematic extravaganza 
26th July 2014 | Clydeside Amphitheatre


On Saturday 26th of July 85A Motion Pictures offered rare chance to get on set and take part in the final film shoot of their sure fire blockbuster.  
Featuring live music from a host of Glasgow’s most excellent musical maestros, beguiling stunts, epic set pieces, and state of the art film technique applied by five star, award winning real life cinema gurus.

THE HUNT FOR THE RATTUS ORLOVA tells the story of a seemingly abandoned salvage ship, crewed by mutant cannibal rats under the command of a salty captain, as it scours the flotsam and jetsam of the deep murky Commonwealth Ocean for mysterious treasures.

Gypsy Romania, Golden Teacher, Halfrican, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Capone & The Bullets


Come dusk the film set transforms into a stunning open air cinema. Showcasing special artist commissions from Torsten Lauschman and Chris Leslie, alongside a screening of the acclaimed Scottish film Seawards the Great Ships, set to the brand new live score performed by DJ Skizzwang.
