Maggie Rodford was the music supervisor for the feature documentary ‘Scheme Birds’ with Emily Appleton Holley assisting. Air-Edel’s Jim Sutherland co-wrote with Darren McGarvey, produced and performed the original songs ‘Parcel of Vogues’ and ‘Escape Artist’ with Loki The Scottish Rapper.
Directed by Ellen Fiske and Ellinor Hallin, Scheme Birds centers on the Scottish teenager Gemma and the people in her life: her grandfather, who raised her after her mother abandoned her; her boyfriend Pat; her unlucky best friend Amy; and her neighbour JP. Their scheme is Jerviston, a place where you “either get knocked up or locked up,” where there’s been nothing to do since Margaret Thatcher closed the local steelworks in the 1980s. Everyone finds a distraction to stay out of trouble: Papa keeps pigeons and teaches boxing, the kids drink and commit petty crime, and Gemma finds motherhood.
Air-Edel composer Cliff Eidelman wrote the original score for the short film ‘The 100%’ which premiered at the festival on 22nd April. The harrowing and inspirational story follows Maggie Kudirka, a ballet dancer and rising star at the Joffrey Concert Group who was diagnosed with incurable stage four metastatic breast cancer at the age of 23.
