The afternoon edition of the news programme ‘Scotland Today’ showed Billy Boyd on the set of his next project, ‘Sniper 470’ which is being shot in Glasgow.
Billy is cast as a lone astronaut and was shown in an oversized spacesuit and even bigger helmet about to be sucked out an airlock!
The ‘film’ is being made as part of a new Scottish short film scheme called NEW FOUND LAND and apparently, this means that the ‘film’ will be shown on TV first.
I use the word ‘film’ loosely as a digital video camera was being used.
The director was interviewed and explained that Billy got the job because he could pretend he was floating while sitting down and did it better than anyone else!
