SHOCK: bringing a voice to the voiceless through art

Garry Anthony Fraser is a BAFTA award winning filmmaker and social entrepreneur.

Originally from the Muirhouse estate in Edinburgh, Garry was once involved in a life of crime and drug abuse. He managed to find his path out of addiction after realising his creative talents on the HND film course at Edinburgh College in 2006. Now Garry is an internationally respected director, who is renowned for his gritty, real-life, urban documentaries set in Edinburgh.

In 2013 Garry started Wideo Media; a social enterprise that uses the power of art as a tool to harness creativity in young people from council schemes, offering them a safe environment to question the society in which they live.

Revealing, shocking and inspirational, Garry draws on his own experience to shine an intelligent, human light on life in our schemes, and shows us why social justice is so important for the many living in hell.
