Shoot is really excited about Pip‘s latest directorial project, a truly outstanding commercial for The Scotsman newspaper which was released this week.

We love it because it brilliantly combines all the best elements of Pip’s work. Above are some still frames from the spot that are clearly and characteristically Pip.

He spent a week in Scotland and shot a hugely diverse series of portraits of real people from all over the country to celebrate modern Scotland and its inhabitants.  The voiceover consists of a poem, ‘Can You Hear It’, written by Billy Letford and performed by none other than the great scot himself, David Tennant.
