About Michael Westcott
I am an award winning, Scotland (UK) based freelance filmmaker with experience working on projects in the UK and Europe.
Specialising as an outdoor camera operator and director, I create cinematic promotional films and documentaries for a range of clients including corporate, wildlife, web and production companies.
I have worked for a large range of companies including Calmac, 29 Studios, Stramash, Payfont, Oban Times, Oban Live and Vertical Descents. My kit entails the latest 4K capable Sony A7S mark 2 camera which, can be used with the Freefly Systems MōVI M5 3-axis stabilizer or Glidecam HD 2000. I use the high quality lenses to ensure those pin sharp details are captured naturally as possible.
My recent film “A year in the life of Stramash” won the best film judges award at Peebles Outdoor Film Festival. I also have a degree in Digital Media from Edinburgh Napier University.
I offer to make any type of film, documentaries, music videos, weddings, promotional films - I aim to create films with feeling.
