We’ve been using our filming knowledge to offer our services to crews who want to shoot in the Azores. Either by working as fixers, consulters, production assistants, sound operators. 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.
At the same time, 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 exploring our creativity and that’s why we make an effort to produce short documentaries that are available for free online.
