Behind-the-scenes footage has been woven into a video of UHI creative industries students performing at Caledonian Stadium in Inverness.

More than 40 students gathered for a two-day event in the Highland capital.

Music students and staff also entertained customers with a session at MacGregor’s Bar in Inverness.

Anna-Wendy Stevenson, senior lecturer and programme leader for UHI’s applied music BA (Hons), said: “Residencies are one of the highlights of the academic year for students and staff members. Although we meet in Inverness every September, no residency is the same and we set a new challenge each year.

"The mix of skills, experience and ideas the students bring creates unique directions and encourages individuals to make new connections. We were delighted to be welcomed by Inverness Caledonian Football Club and enable our students to collaborate in such an iconic venue.”

Anna McPherson, programme leader BA (Hons) contemporary film making in the Highlands and Islands degree, said: "This inter-disciplinary creative residency was a fantastic opportunity for our new contemporary film-making students to learn to work cohesively as a production crew, having just met their peers for the first time. They gained experience of the fundamental skills of video and sound recording on location and interpreting the best visual representation of a fluid musical performance.”

Daisy McCormick, an applied music student from Midlothian, was one of the attendees. She said: “This was my first residency and it was a great balance of fun and hard work. Meeting other students from my own course and the film and creative writing courses was great. Collaborating to create the music for the video was quite ambitious, but I was impressed at how it all came together and being in the stadium was a lot of fun.”
