Digital Media Production Facilities
Since producing the 2001 documentary Passing Places – The Real Outer Hebrides, Taigh Chearsabhagh has been committed to collaborating with local communities, students, artists and production companies to use video and other digital media to very high production standards. You can see a wide variety of what we’ve been working on at our Vimeo Channel.
Moving image is an important focus of our arts programme. We have collaborated with, and exhibited artists working with moving image such as Shona Illingworth, Thomson + Craighead, Jocelyn Cottencin, Ilana Halperin, Chris Drury, Keith McIntyre, Dalziell + Scullion, Ian Stephen, Mairead McClean and Canadian artist/filmmaker Joshua Bonnetta. We are currently commissioning Danish artists Benjamin Skop & Amund Bentsen to produce new video performance works for Ecognosis to be screened late summer 2020. We have received funding for Tide Lines, a film with Alix Rothnie & Sarah Calmus.
UistFilm was launched in October 2013 as a 2 year pilot project supported by Creative Scotland, HIE and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar to further develop Digital Media production, training and education in Uist.
Through this in-house film resource, Taigh Chearsabhagh produced films for the Victoria & Albert Museum, BBC ALBA, Historic Environment Scotland, Northumbria University, Scottish Islands Federation, UHI, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and many more.
We aim to help to develop the creative industries sector in the Outer Hebrides by local provision of HD video equipment and facilities and encouraging local talent by providing production-led training opportunities. We can also provide skilled professional personnel to assist you.
Taigh Chearsabhagh has a wide variety of video camera, audio recording equipment and post production (editing) facilities. If you want to make a film, get some training, hire a camera or just find out more, download our Digital Media hire rate card or contact us.
