Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Island

Creating a promotional film for the Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Island brand.

THE BRIEF

During the first week of September 2018, I stayed for a week on the Isle of Eriska, in the north-west of Scotland. The brief was to create a short, inviting promotional film to showcase the beautiful island, luxury hotel, and accompanying golf course and spa. 

The success of the film would truly depend on connecting with the essence of what makes the Isle of Eriska special. Staying on the island for a week allowed me to explore this in depth, as well as allowing time to form a bond with the staff who make the experience so unique. Five comprehensive twenty minute interviews were filmed with key members of the team, and from this hour or so of raw footage, selected portions were used to tell the story of the Eriska experience.

The soundtrack to the film was produced in house.

"There's a certain magic about staying on a private island. Located on the west coast of Scotland, our 300 acre island offers a truly unique and memorable experience."
