New horizons for our filmmakers

Over the last few years Melt has become a key supplier of engaging factual films for Scotland's third, private and public sectors. This work is supported by a team of talented professionals spanning the sector.

Melt founder James Thomson and DOP Thomas Hogben are completing a 6-month programme led by the Scottish Documentary Institute with emerging filmmakers from across the UK. The programme features producer and former Head of Documentary at Arte, Thierry Garrel (below), and leading Storytelling Consultant and Editor, Susan Brand

Continuing this momentum, we're excited to announce that our work with the Scottish Crofting Federation will enter the Ullapool Museum collection.  Engineered by Thomas Telford in 1829, the museum is an important focal point for the planned fishing village of Ullapool, and we look forward to seeing our film on display here when it reopens in April.

With some interesting new projects on the horizon, we're also expanding our team in 2017 with the inclusion of a talented local DOP, and sound designer. So if you think you've got a brief that fits with our work, we'd love to hear from you.
