"Donkeys" Director Morag McKinnon is Scots Hot!

In the press: The List has compiled a list ;) of The Hot 100 2010 that includes some familiar names and faces to those at Sigma. Notable on the compilation is"Donkeys" director Morag McKinnon, ranked at an impressive number 27.

Respected short and TV director McKinnon has been on our radar for a while now and with her debut feature Donkeys (a follow up of sorts to Andrea Arnold’s Glasgow-set drama Red Road) she did not disappoint. It’s one of the year’s best films. (PD)

One of the stars of Donkeys, actor Martin Compston (Red Road), also made the cut, coming in at 21:
The boy’s got soul
Who knew a lad from Greenock could dance as well as he does in enjoyable period drama Soulboy? It’s been a crucial year for Compston, very strong performances in Soulboy and Donkeys aside, this 26-year-old did not stop working, and as a result he has a very healthy roster of future releases.

Also on the list are two from Sigma's next release, Perfect Sense.
Wonderful composer Max Richter is listed at 98:
Off the scale composer
Following 2010 album Infra – the fruits of his collaboration with choreographer Wayne McGregor and visual artist Julian Opie for the Royal Ballet – the Fat Cat-signed, Edinburgh-based composer’s upcoming calendar includes scoring David McKenzie’s Ewan McGregor-starring film Perfect Sense

Finally, Perfect Sense (and Young Adam) actor extraordinaire Ewan McGregor is noted at number 90.

Thanks to List!
