The Cuillin Collective

Welcome

"Hello, Bonjour, G’Day and Howdy,
Welcome to our new website.
We’ve spent the last few months designing and developing this new website to suit our company and you, our customers.

For example, we work with a lot start up companies. So to help celebrate this we have introduced 3 exclusive start up packages which we are calling The Collections. They have everything you need to start up your business online and all for a very affordable price. Remember, as always with us, low prices don’t mean low standards. Why not check The Collections out.

Now, despite having a large client base, over a million YouTube views, over 500 videos created, over 15 websites designed, developed and SEO’d and countless voice overs, logos, leaflets and postcards designed, we still consider ourselves a small and personal company.

We are still a team of two. Myself, Marc, and my wife Ailsa. I concentrate on web video productions, which includes, hand craft explanation videos, viral video production, chroma keying etc. And, Ailsa concentrates on website design and development, illustration and design, logos, leaflets and anything else....designable*

So why not sit back and have a browse around our lovely website, subscribe to our blog, watch our videos or chat with us using the Live Chat function at the bottom of the page. We love to talk about anything, football, dogs, videos, illustrations, web design, food etc.

Thanks for visiting. Both Ailsa and I are looking forward to working with you soon!

Marc & Ailsa

*We also make up our own words."

I occasionally review products on here but they all have a relevance to our business so this may seem a little odd. Meet the Arcido bag. In its most basic form, it’s a bag that meets the requirements ...Read More »

2015

I thought I would round up 2015 with a little blog post on what we've been up to. It's been a busy year. To the point where I've not written as much as I'd should have.

Let me start at the end. I was asked to go to St. Kilda to make a short video. However, this wasn't the eventful part. To get there I needed to take a helicopter and by taking the helicopter, I had to get myself a HUET certificate. If you don't know what that is, it's when the throw you into a pretend chopper, strap you in, dip you into a swimming pool and flip you upside down.....7 times. It's a terrifying as it sounds. I've embedded a video below (this isn't me, just a demo of what it is)

Despite feeling like I've been buried alive 7 times I got my certificate and free scarf and headed of to St. Kilda. For all of 90 minutes but it was worth it. An amazing place to visit and spend some time. If you get the chance, go by boat from Uig.

The next notable experience this year was working with Lakeland. The marketing team contacted us asking for a film to work in conjunction with their new booklet. We were all ecstatic to be working with such a well known brand. Scary at first but the team at Lakeland knew what they wanted which is a big deal (ask anyone in the film production industry). It was the first time that Ailsa, Helen and myself had worked together as closely as we did which was a big deal. We also got to learn some new skills, eg. roto-scoping, motion tracking, and a few animation techniques we'd never used before. The film forced us to learn lots to new things that we can take into all future films. I cannot show off this film just yet as it's not been shown to the Lakeland staff. But as soon as it's live, I'll paste the link here.

A video we can show, is one that Helen animated for a company called Rekko. Was great fun to shoot and I'm sure it was a blast to edit/animate.

 

I'd like to be able to create a 2015 showreel really show you what we've done, but we just don't have the time. So this blog will need to do.

And that's it. My favourite bits from the year. Our updated portfolio is fully updated if you fancy a look.

If I am asked what I do for a living it always makes me cringe replying with ‘videographer’ or ‘we make videos’ because it reminds me of working with that awful technology; videotape. But, it’s what p...Read More »
