VIDEO: Aberdeen barman films his dolphin hunt

John Lewis sets off on his hunt for the dolphins

An Aberdeen barman has created a video of his hunt for the charity dolphins in Aberdeen.

John Lewis, 22, showcased his hunt for the 50 life-sized dolphin sculptures that made their appearance in city landmarks earlier this summer.

The Mancunian, who moved to Aberdeen in 2010 for university, created the video with two friends, one of whom travelled to Aberdeen from Edinburgh for the occasion.

Mr Lewis said: “I made it because it’s nice to see something colourful and expressive come to Aberdeen that everyone can partake in, the fact it’s an effort for charity is just the icing on the cake.

He added: “What inspired the opening sequence [Footdee being shot in the style of a horror film] was due to a combination of how late we got there and by that point fog was rolling in.

“With all the unique claustrophobic streets and the eerie weather, it seemed too good an opportunity to miss.”

The 22-year-old also works as freelance graphic designer and creates a variety of content for his YouTube channel.

He hopes to have part two of the hunt produced in the next two weeks.
