Film and TV
We have been involved in the industry for the better part of twenty years and have a very wide range of contacts throughout the visual media, including the BBC – we were featured in:
- Game of Thrones
- Genius of the Vikings
- The Story of English
- A History of Britain
- Out of This World
- The Matthew Project
- See You, See Me
to name but a few. Please see our up-to-date media CV for our latest successes! Work might involve a one day shoot for two in a town or for fifty in Ireland at several different locations. All are equally within our stride.
We understand the frequently conflicting needs of production companies and have an enviable and closely guarded reputation for being easy and amiable folk to work with.
A full list of previous clients is available on our CV. To repeat it here would take up a great deal of space to little purpose, however a brief selection might be of some interest.
The Jorvik Viking Centre, for whom we have worked annually for over twenty years. The Vikingr! Centre in Largs, (whose drama documentary video production almost exclusively features our members, their costume, props and equipment), the Peel Viking Centre in the Isle of Man, English Heritage, The National Trust, The Royal Armouries, Durham, Worcester, Bristol, Stafford, Rochester and other City and Borough Councils throughout the UK.
We have supplied replica artefacts for – amongst others – the new National Museum of Scotland, Liverpool Metropolitan Museum for the Silver Saga exhibition, The Museum of European History in Taiwan, Doncaster Museum and the Peel Viking Interpretation Centre in the Isle of Man. These are now open and we were heavily involved with the making of the drama documentaries shown at these centres. Having completed a £6,000 contract to re-costume the Jorvik Viking Centre's interpretation personnel, we feel quite capable of producing any weapons – or, indeed, a fine-toothed antler louse comb to a full sized ship replica!

Well, that's about it. If you've come with me through this – I hope! – interesting little article, you will have a pretty good idea of our ability to organise, arrange and perform. My principal function is to find paid work for the society and I would be very interested in discussing our possible input for your production.
