Corran Media is a media production company based on the Isle of Lewis in the wild and beautiful Eileanan Siar (Western Isles), which are located off the north west coast of Scotland. The company was form in 2009 with a view to providing premium production and technical services in the north of Scotland whilst also offering both commissioners and clients outstanding value.

As a company we are rooted in our Gaelic language and heritage, with its rich culture and strong story telling tradition. Growing up with riveting, unforgettable stories is what fuels our own desire to tell stories in a way that connects and remains with people.

Survival in this wild corner of Europe has also always required an innovative approach and a willingness to embrace the new, and so that also characterises our approach. This innovation defines a number of key aspects of the company, not least our approach to technology. We assess new technology on an on-going basis and adopt the newest and the best in order to deliver maximum impact.

Adaptability is also a timeless necessity in this beautiful but challenging part of the world, and we bring that adaptability both to business and the content we create. That means that we create everything from channel idents and promo campaigns to high end drama and feature documentaries. We thrive on partnerships and creative structuring of projects, helping clients and commissioners achieve ambitious goals. And irrespective of what we tackle across this wide range of genres and creative frameworks, our core principles help us deliver unforgettable stories and images.

This flexible approach allows us to produce a wide selection of films, drama and short form projects ourselves, whilst also providing creative and technical services for broadcasters and fellow producers.

Our robust and resilient technical services are used by BBC Alba on a daily basis, as we provide them with editing and graphics facilities for their interstitials. We have also provided creative and technical services to deliver for them may highly successful seasonal campaigns, and in 2018 we were honoured to be chosen by them to produce their branding package as they evolved their service into a multi platform digital offering. This included creating an entirely new look for the television channel and providing appropriate complimentary assets for each digital outlet.

Relationships established prior to the forming of the company allowed us to hit the ground running with drama, so we’ve amassed a lot of experience in a relatively short period of time. We provide end to end technical services for Young Films, incorporating location and post production. We’ve also been heavily involved in projects like Move On Up’s multi award winning Katie Morag and have provided on set and data management services for Neal Street Productions’ national treasure Call The Midwife.

In a addition that we provided the post production services for the much loved music series Transatlantic Sessions and have helped helped clients like Mast Ard Studios deliver international documentaries like The President’s Mother. That is, of course, in addition to the wide range of documentaries both at home and abroad, that we’ve delivered ourselves.
