Stars of the grassroots campaign for a Yes vote in the independence referendum are featuring in a new Yes Scotland campaign video.
Produced by an award-winning production company, the five minute video features 32 well-known faces from across Scotland who are campaigning for a Yes on September 18.
As part of Yes Scotland’s expansive social media campaign to reach out to voters about why they should back an independent Scotland, the video will be released online midday tomorrow [Friday] via YesScotland.net and also shared with the tens of thousands volunteers who can show at events being held all over the country in the build-up to Referendum Day.
Commenting Andy Maas, Producer of Freak Films, said:
“It’s fantastic to be part of the campaign and see people from all walks of life coming together for this video. With only two days of shooting, this is a just a snapshot of the breadth of the independence movement.
“Film and video is an important medium to communicate with people and I hope the people of Scotland enjoy watching why so many people, just like them, are voting Yes.”
Speaking in the video, comedian and actor Greg Hemphill said:
“The referendum is going to come round once in a lifetime and the opportunity is right now. Who want’s to be dependent when you can be independent? On September the 18th I’m voting Yes.”
Former BBC journalist and Green Yes campaigner Louise Batchelor added:
“We are not choosing a political party, we are choosing the way we live our lives. In September I am voting Yes.”
