Our films are our favourite way of giving back. The founders of Our Island studied in the film school and worked in the industry before creating Our Island. We are passionate and committed to continuing and exploring our creativity and that’s why, every year, we make an effort to produce short documentaries that are available for free online. At the same time, we’ve been using our cinematography knowledge to offer our services to crews who want to shoot in the Azores. either by working as fixers, consulters, production assistants, or drivers. We are specialists on our playground. We know the people and the places and we know the necessities of TV, cinema, and advertisement production crews.
