Take Your Partners



In 2013 Take Your Partners was developed as part of Creative Scotland’s Scottish Shorts new talent scheme. Since then Siri, Stuart and Sara have been working hard to get it off the ground and into production.


Now in 2015 we finally have started principal photography on the project and it has grown into a collaboration project beyond what we had ever expected. Over the past few months, we have been working with Into Film, a BFI funded film education charity, and LGBT Youth Scotland to offer a mutually beneficial experience where the 51 young people involved in Take Your Partners will learn and have as much fun as we are.


Birdhead Poster




Arpeggio Pictures have wrapped post production on the Silent is the Crow music video. This is the first single from Birdhead's debut album and we were thrilled to work with them on this unique project.


Special thanks should be given to make up artist Gillian Johnstone.


The single will be released on the 11th of March and AP cannot recommend it highly enough. Buying this record will immediately improve any iPod.


Birdhead, of course, are an Edinburgh 2 piece who have a beak and talons.




Rabbit Punch screened at the Glasgow Short Film Festival today as part of the wider Glasgow Film Festival. Our flick was amongst a very challenging programme featuring a heady mix of documentary, experimental arthouse and drama.


There really was something for everyone. We were absolutely delighted to have the film shown at the event with our very own Sara Forbes taking the stage to introduce it.


Although the festival is now over, we would urge you to look out for it next year and get yourself along to support the films and the filmmakers, it's a great way to spend an afternoon.

Power of Dogs

POWER OF DOGS - Power of Dogs follows a day and a night in the life of Hurst, from reality to dream and back, observing his ongoing battle with guilt. Hurst sought out solitude in the depths of a forest to deal with the consequences of his past actions - but was it the right decision? Is he capable of turning his life around on his own?


Exploring guilt, forgiveness and the search inner peace, Power of Dogs tries to show the importance of introspection in our relation to the outside world.
