FILMMAKING

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.

Microdocs – Season 1

Microdocs – Season 1

Microdocs are a series of short documentaries. Our first season has eight episodes that are each about five minutes long and are subtitled in English. Our ancestors left us the greatest value in the Azores – tradition, history, and heritage. We are in love with the Azores and everything about them. Therefore, we use our creativity to document and spread the knowledge about our culture amongst locals and travelers.
