Where am I Going?

Jamiel Laurence, 31

Celebrating the wealth of young talent Scotland has to offer, MASTER PLAN features 16 year old Jamie Campbell, a student in his final year at the Dance School of Scotland. Filmed on Mobile, the film captures Jamie running and dancing his way down Glasgow’s iconic Great Western Road. The film captures Jamie during one of the most challenging times in any dancer’s journey, as during this time he was making big decisions about his future, facing leaving his family and friends behind in Glasgow and choosing which of the performing arts schools he had achieved places at was right for him. It was really special to be able to capture Jamie at this exciting time, and I wanted the image of him rushing towards a destination with all of the thoughts streaming through his mind to be reflected in the traffic whizzing past him as he danced. The piece aims to express these thoughts through dance, and provide an observer with a hyper realised version of Jamie coming up with his own “Master Plan!”
