Films We Loved Making About Scotland's People and Places

STROMA Films is a production company based in Edinburgh, Scotland. We love to tell your story.

We love our jobs so here is a list of some short videos that we loved making. The majority were filmed in Scotland and they were all about inspirational artists, designers or places in Scotland.

You can watch many more of our videos on our website. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them.


Perfect Harmony

The Perfect Harmony campaign aims to bring together 2 of Scotland’s national treasures, St Mary’s Music School and the old Royal High School on Edinburgh’s Calton Hill.

Our film supports the move to return one of the world's finest examples of Greek revival architecture, Thomas Hamilton's Royal High School, back to its original purpose as a school and the new home of St Mary's Music School.

The House of Annie Lennox

Do you want to film a live, invitation only, session with Annie Lennox and chat to her about her career? Oh, go on then!

Rapid Visual Media were given this opportunity while Annie was in Edinburgh to promote her exhibition The House of Annie Lennox at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Amongst the items on show are a series of self portraits that reveal some of the anxiety and self doubt experienced during the early part of her career.

This was an extremely open and honest interview and a rewarding filming experience. Enjoy.

Rich, bold and confident, Scotland's design creativity is making an ever greater impact. This film features the work of designers who have chosen to stay in Scotland to build their careers. Northern Lights makes a statement about contemporary Scottish design, encompassing a range of designers from a variety of fields, including fashion, furniture, interiors, product and jewellery.

NVA - A Future Reclaimed

St Peter's Seminary, Cardross - Modernist Architecture in Scotland
The derelict site of St Peter's Seminary in Cardross divides opinion, an example of Brutalist architecture seemingly so out of of place and out of time. One thing is for sure - action needs to be taken.

What a privilege and a pleasure getting to film this fascinating building and learning more about it's history for the NVA.
