MTP and Bombito are on the RANDAN!

After years of working together and collaborating on a number of projects, we have joined forces with the wonderful Reece Cargan / Bombito Productions, to create RANDAN - a brand new production company with a focus on drama and documentaries.

Producer Reece Cargan of Bombito Productions and MTP’s Managing Director, James Heath, will now run Film and TV projects through RANDAN as a shared vehicle to develop, produce and distribute films with a global reach. The company was created with the aim to champion new storytelling and a desire to tap into the well of talented writers / directors throughout Scotland and beyond.

Unlike the primarily commercial focus of MTP, RANDAN will work across live-action features, documentaries and TV and will focus on telling intersectional stories through a contemporary lens, showcasing the best of what UK voices have to offer regionally and globally.

In years 1-2, RANDAN will focus on first and second features from emerging writers and directors. their slate selection is as follows:

  • Boifriend - by Jack Goessens
  • Your Honour - by Bircan Birol
  • Ride - by Dean Loxton
  • A Good Spell - by Michael Lee Richardson
  • Love Letters - by Danny Cook
  • Ting - by Maximilien Dejoie
  • Head Rush - by Philip Wright
  • Desperate Wretched People - by Jamie Maule-ffinch

These projects will be buoyed by a catalog of European Co-Productions - with the following co-production projects already scheduled for release in 2024, 2025 under the new banner:

  • Where Dragons Live - World Premiere - Sheffield Doc Fest June 2024 - Docmakers, Netherlands
  • Leonora in the Morning Light - in post-production - Skye Films Dragonfly films, Meli Melo Cultura and Digital Cube
  • Spilt Milk- in post-production - co-produced with 925 Productions
  • Midwinter Break - in post– a co-production with Guy Heeley - Shoebox Films, Family Affair, Film 4 and Protagonist

This is all thanks to the funding received at the start of the year from the BFI’s highly competitive Global Screen Fund.
