Since 2007 North Isle Productions has been creating award winning and nominated documentaries and fiction for UK and international clients and funders.
North Isle is currently producing ‘Strutter’, a feature documentary on a group of Scottish pensioners hand building a replica WW1 biplane that takes to the skies in 2016. The film is a co-production with director Gerard Lohan at Daemon Productions. Updates on the project here: Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter.
Producer Lili Sandelin is currently collaborating with director Alice Nelson, sound designer Zoe Irvine and editor Becky Milling on a large scale installation film for a live music performance by Red Note Ensemble, and a short documentary about mental health.
In 2015-16 Lili executive produced director Robin Haig’s Bafta Scotland New Talent Best Drama winner ‘Hula’, and director Kelly Holmes’ Victorian drama ‘Family Portrait’ that won a French post-production co-production deal.
