2015 was pretty incredible for Lyre, with ongoing DVD sales of our 2 feature films, plenty of script development, plus new shoots throughout Scotland.
It was a privilege collaborating with new crew and creating original work.

The rewards come when going through the rushes in the edit. Quality results time and again.
This year looks set to keep the run going, and we cannot wait to get the kit out.
So we wish you all a truly Happy New Year! May 2016 bring adventure and opportunity and reward.

September saw us filming with the marvellous David Whitney, who joined our set to play psychiatrist Dr Lloyd.
Also welcomed on set were A/C Steven Cook and sound man Paul Hartmann.
We shot at Henry’s Cellar Bar, the famous Edinburgh music venue.
Here’s some images, photographed by the amazing Thomas Morgan.
We are proud to be promoting our colleague’s production at Edinburgh Fringe!
Elspeth Turner co-stars in UNF but before she wraps shooting she’s performing at the world’s biggest arts festival in a play by her company Stoirm Og.

Spectretown

Inspired by the bothy ballads of Scotland’s North East, playwright Elspeth Turner (The Idiot at the Wall, 2012) and acclaimed director Matthew Lenton (Vanishing Point) explore the fraying boundaries between past, present, and future. Weaving poetry, Doric, wild horses, and song, this courageous new play deftly wrestles with tradition, power, and the loneliness of modern life.
Spectretown plays at Assembly Hall at 13:30 and runs ’til 31st August.

Hallo!
Shooting has begun on our new feature – a road movie love story. JACOB adjusts to his new life in the city. EVA is the secret daughter of Ingmar Bergman. They collide into each others’ world.
Whilst telling an entertaining story, this film aims to celebrate the hope, humour & inspiration of people with schizophrenia, and shed some light on this psychiatric disorder.
For 3 years I’ve been conducting research, and examining the responsibilities that lie with filmmakers. Advice & thoughts of Professor Stephen Lawrie have been invaluable.
“The arts, and film in particular, have a role in reducing the stigmatization of mental illness, and they provide opportunities to hear stories about mental illness in a way that corrects the myths and stereotypes people have about these conditions.”
Professor Stephen Lawrie, Head of Psychiatry, University of Edinburgh

Privileged to say that work has begun on our new project. Keeping it quiet just now, but after 7 days shooting we’re immensely excited at the potential of this new film.
The team are fantastic. The footage looks stunning. Further details will follow here!
