Ask a filmmaker (or three) a question

As we said, we have over 50 years experience in the screen industries between us! If you're thinking about a career in TV or film, have a script you'd like notes on, or want to make your own short film, tell us what we can help with. The three of us will spend an hour with you on Zoom, share some ideas that could help you achieve your goals, and do what we can to support you with your own future projects.

Join Director Shiona for a home-baking session

Shiona will share some (probably not all!) her baking secrets with you, in a special half-day home-baking session. Best of all, you get to keep the results, and the recipes! Due to Covid restrictions, this will likely need to take place partly outside - if Nigella can do it, so can we - and as much as we'd all like to travel right now, you'll need to be in the Greater Glasgow area to benefit from this reward.

Sponsor a Female Trainee

We'd like to bring six female trainees onto our set, to learn from experienced women across the departments. We're working with organisations in Glasgow that encourage inclusivity in the screen industries, to target those who haven't benefitted from organised training schemes as yet. With your support, we can pay minimum wage, contribute towards transport or childcare costs, and address any other barriers to work our trainees may experience.

Over £100 million has been raised from our crowd to support the projects they love! Plus tens of millions more unlocked by our partners.
