Hello, we’re Sylwia & Simon, and we’re the eyes behind Wild Call Films. We’ve been working as photographers for several years (have a look at some of our photography work over at Cro + Kow), and a couple of years ago we started getting excited by the moving image - so we thought, why not start filming? Before we knew it, we had clients asking us to make films from weddings. So we tried it, and we were hooked!
We have our studio in Edinburgh, but we’re travelling around a lot - both in the UK and abroad, we have a very international outlook. So if you need some filming doing abroad, we’re up for it! We spend a lot of our time going to the movies and take a lot of our inspiration from the cinema.
P.S. - WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Why "Wild Call Films"? We spent many a happy summer (not to mention the odd chilly winter) sailing around the North Sea and the Baltic in a sailing boat with sweet lines called "Wild Call". The name Wild Call comes from the poem Sea Fever by John Masefield, which is all about why we're drawn to the sea:
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
We have our studio in the buzzing Edinburgh arts hub (and centre of Pickerings Gin production, hic) that is Summerhall:
