Documentary about sanitation projects in Tanzanian schoolsClient Website arrow_drop_down_circleWe had the privilege of being invited to Tanzania for 3 weeks to capture video content for Raleigh Tanzania. Our main objective was to produce a short film to document their Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) projects, which is supported by Jersey Overseas Aid. Raleigh are working in rural Primary Schools in Tanzania to build much needed toilet and hand washing facilities as well as carrying out educational work with children and community members to improve the general knowledge of safe hygiene practices.
With 84% of schools lacking any hand washing facilities, illness amongst children is very common. Raleigh are working hard to impact as many children as possible.
"It was a real pleasure to work with Ally over a 3 month period from start to final edit. He researched our organisation and studied the brief very well, adding his own ideas and style to better the video. This resulted in a video that exceeded expectation. Our supporters and us were extremely happy with it. Perhaps most importantly, Ally is very easy to work with – a complete professional but also lots of fun. In challenging conditions he remains composed and puts everyone he is filming at ease in order to get the best out of them. I would thoroughly recommend his services.”

Overview film for arts complexClient Website arrow_drop_down_circle The SWG3 complex is a multi-disciplinary arts venue and events company. SWG3’s humble roots began with a run-down exhibition and studio space and has evolved and expanded to offer four event venues, 24 artists studios, a co-working space, a photography studio and a 5000 capacity outdoor space.
SWG3 came to us to produce an overview film which would effectively communicate what they offer, where they began and what their plans for the future are. The film was also used as a tool to help gain funding for their latest proposed venue, The Galvanizers.
This was a collaborative project, working closely with the talented folk at Playdead who created animated sequences to visualise the potential functions of The Galvanizers venue. We went to our friends at Selected Audio to compose bespoke music for the film with a full sound design and mixing by Boxmusic.
"It was a great experience to work with Ally and his team on the SWG3 Video. His creative ideas and ability to interview guest speakers and get the best out of people resulted in us having a fantastic tool to show clients, sponsors and the public."

Scottish Federation of Housing Associations Promotional film featuring tenant’s stories We produced this short promotional film to premiere at the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations annual conference. The purpose of the film is to give a small insight into how the SFHA and it’s are helping to change lives and shape communities for the better. We decided to take personal approach with the film by focussing on five inspiring tenant’s who have benefitted greatly from the support of their Housing Association or co-operative.

Behind the scenes documentary about a school animation project Under the Jasmine Tree is an animation based on an original poem written by Glasgow-based Syrian poet, Saffanna. In this poignant poem, Saffanna shares her feelings about leaving her home in Syria. The animation project came about when Saffanna came to read the poem to pupils at St Fillans Primary School in Glasgow. Pupils then collaborated with Maryhill Integration Network and Mediaco-op to produce this beautiful animation.
We were tasked with documenting the process in this ‘making of’ film. We also asked the children to reflect upon their experience of meeting Saffana and helping to turn her poem into an animated film.
