Since 2007 North Isle Productions has been creating award winning and nominated documentaries and fiction for UK and international clients and funders. We are mainly interested in human stories and comedy.
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. More information on the project here: Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter.
Working with director and SFX extraordinaire Calum MacDonald, we are about to start filming ‘Dirty Little Smugglers’, a sci-fi web series featuring two hopeless inter galactic arms dealers hosting their own shopping channel. Our feature in development, ‘Cannibal Run’, is a pitch black comedy about the last family of Scottish cannibals set in the underground world of contemporary Edinburgh and written by screenwriter Brian Robinson. More information about our current projects can be found on our Facebook page.
Some of North Isle’s past projects include ‘War Letters’, a multiscreen WW1 film installation for Grid Iron Theatre and The Edinburgh International Book Festival promenade performance ‘Letters Home’ in 2014. Directed by Alice Nelson, the production won a Scotsman Fringe First Award and was nominated for a Creative Edinburgh Award. Documentary ‘Finding Josephine’ was shot in Uganda and funded by Why Poverty? scheme. After a successful broadcast run in multiple territories, the film directed by Tomas Sheridan has now been seen over 64,000 times on Youtube. North Isle’s science films cover neurodegeneration (MS, Parkinson’s), stem cell science, genetics and death. We have also crafted music videos for The Fnords, The Braxton Band and The Legendary Graeme Mearns Band.
