A PRODUCTION company which regularly promotes the Taobh Sear’s unique scenery has made a donation to Staffin Community Trust following a recent shoot.
Edinburgh-based LS Productions, which is the UK’s largest stills and motion service, has donated £100 towards SCT’s project work.
LS is a regular visitor to Staffin and the Storr and Quiraing feature heavily in its website.The company works on big advertising and filing campaigns for a range of companies and brands and was recently at Loch Mealt, Ellishadder, which is near the Kilt Rock.
Earlier this year Staffin featured heavily in a new Volvo advert while who can forget the online campaign featuring the “flying sheep” at the Quiraing last summer… http://lsproductions.com/about/our-work/#/kayak-sheep-happens-uk
That advert promoted the travel search engine KAYAK’s new app. It was a four-day shoot in Staffin with 100 Cheviots “in costume”, one black sheep and a goat.
LS was interested to learn about SCT’s range of projects which are focused on creating employment in Staffn and improving the economy improving the community’s long term sustainability and securing a regular income for he community.
Amy Morement, the company’s location manager, said she was pleased the donation would be put to good use.
“We spent a week filming on Skye and heard that the Trust looked after interests in the area so wanted to donate some money as a thank you for having such a wonderful shoot and for everyone we encountered being so accommodating,” she said. “We hope to be back on Skye soon. Edinburgh is of course beautiful but nothing quite compares to a sunrise on Skye!”
