    Glasgow Students raise money for charity with enormous fancy dress parade.

  • Description


    Title: "Picturesque Parade by Glasgow Students in effort to raise £10,000 in aid of local Hospitals".

    M/S of a procession of students coming through the crowd lined streets of Glasgow, many are dressed as comical Scots with large fake beards and oversized tam-o'-shanters, others are dressed as clown, skeletons and may other wild and whacky variations. M/S of trucks driving slowly along in the procession, students in fancy dress lean out of the windows and sit on the roof, in the background are three large arches.

    M/S of four students - two women and two men - dressed in Victorian costumes, they sit in an open topped horse drawn carriage. Low angled shot of a carnival float driving under the arches, a man plays the trombone and a scantily clad girl does high kicks. M/S of a student dressed as a policeman on a hobby horse, he blows a whistle and signals wildly with his arms, a real policeman stands behind, looking amused.

    After a second of white spacing, the story resumes (looks like cuts). M/S of a student in drag standing in the middle of a crowd of men, the student grabs one of the men and plants a big sloppy kiss on his lips. More shots of floats in the parade. C/U of a couple dressed as Harlequins doing the waltz. M/S of the couple dancing in front of a float. M/S of a girl dressed as a clown wrestling money from the hand of a passer-by. More general shots of the parade. M/S of students dancing on a float in assorted costumes - Pierrots, Gipsies, Aladdin etc. Good M/S of the comedy policeman directing traffic in front of the real policeman.
