2018 - What A Year

If we had to use one word to describe 2018 it would be 'epic'. We've had such a multitude of brilliant projects it's difficult to narrow it down – but here's a few good ones.
In no particular order!
1. SKYE RIDGE RECORD FILM
Filming Uisdean Hawthorn sprinting along the snow covered jagged edge of the Cuillin Ridge for Mountain Equipment is an experience we'll never forget. The mix of hand held and drone footage certainly made an impact as it was used on national TV as Uisdean was interviewed by Scottish Breakfast TV.
2. THE WILD IN ME CAMPAIGN FOR JOHN MUIR TRUST
Scotland is a place we love so it was an honour to be chosen by the John Muir Trust to bring their work to a wider audience with a multi-film and image campaign. We took the opportunity to bring in two of our favourite fellow creative – poet Helen Mort and photographer Dave Cubby Cuthbertson to show us how the landscapes of Assynt, Sandwood Bay and Ben Nevis have shaped their work.
3. KISO IN SUMMERTIME
We've always dreamed of working in Japan, so when we were invited to showcase the Kiso region in a film we leapt at the opportunity. The experience exceeded our expectation with combination of stunning mountain woodlands, ancient culture and local artisans steeped in their centuries old traditions providing great inspiration.
4. FOOTSTEP AWAY
This project with Sprayway has been a joy to work on. It's the kind of deep detailed campaign we love enabling us to present Sprayway's range within a mix of iconic urban setting contrasting with some of the lesser known wild corners of our national parks.
5. FACING WAVES TV SHOW
Not only were we Director of Photography, producer and writers on this project but Ulrika stepped around to the front of the cameras and presented this TV show looking at adventure kayaking in West Sweden. Something if even she won't admit it herself, she excelled at!
6. EPIC TRAILS TV SERIES
This exciting and inspiring collaboration with Heliconia Productions and the Epic Trails TV series has been a significant part of our work for the last couple of years. In 2018 as Director of Photography Lukasz again expanded his skills at the cutting edge of adventure travel film making with trips to Papua New Guinea, Alaska, Australia and Newfoundland.
