The screening of Faces (1957) at the Edinburgh International Film Festival kick started the film career of Eddie McConnell, then studying at Glasgow School of Art. In 1992 there came Shell Shock (take an egg and make it your star!). Between these two short films - one with no budget and the other for Channel 4 - Eddie crafted a slate of sponsored films and shorts for cinema and television.
