Carlo D'Alessandro

Carlo D’Alessandro’s first short film as a director, Room 9, won him the Best Fiction RTS award. He has since directed documentary dramas for STV and the BBC and relishes working across different genres from art films to music videos. With MTP he has shot and directed advertising campaigns such as Irn-Bru’s ‘Thank You’ advert – a love letter to the spirit of the Commonwealth Games, and for Network Rail’s Borders Railway Project.

Still very active as a cinematographer, he has shot campaigns for clients such as Visit Scotland, Royal Bank of Scotland, KFC, The Open University and Macmillan Publishers. He has been involved in numerous broadcast productions, most recently these include the major documentary series The Stuarts, and the award-winning documentary Michael Palin in Wyeth’s World, for which he won the RTS award for best camera.

More recently, he completed a year-long photography assignment recording the heritage left in the landscape by the monks of the Grande-Chartreuse in the French Alps.

MTP was formed in 1988 with the intention of being the first Scottish based Commercials Production Company.

In the year 2000 we were acclaimed to be the Production Company of the Decade because we had brought ‘International standards of Production to Scotland.’ In 2011 we became the only Production Company to be given an achievement award for making an outstanding contribution to the British Advertising Industry.

We operate a policy of developing new talent locally and we also work with London based and overseas Directors where appropriate.

We operate a Production Service arm helping overseas and English companies find filming locations and shoot in Scotland.

Our documentary company MSP has won numerous awards since it's inception in 2005, including a Royal Television Society nomination.

We are becoming more and more involved with viral and web content and our internet work has also achieved many awards including UK Viral of the Year 2010.

We have won over 200 national and international awards and been in D&AD twelve times.
