Our films are our favourite way of giving back. The founders of Our island had studied in the film school, and worked in the industry before creating Our island. We are passionate and committed to continue and explore our creativity. And that’s why every year we make an effort to produce short documentaries that are available for free for online viewing. At the same time, we’ve been using the cinematography know how to offer our services to crews who want to shoot in the Azores. Either working as fixers, consulters, production assistants, 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.
