A Tayside company has represented the Scottish film industry at an international level.
Dundee-based Flyboy was showcased in Asia and the US after two of its productions were nominated for Phoenix Comicon awards, while one was shown at the Singapore International Film Festival.
Bafta-nominated producer and co-owner John Fairfield said: “We were very happy with the response to Miss Donnithorne’s Maggot screening to sold-out audiences in Singapore and in Phoenix we won best comedy for A Stately Suicide.
“Matt (the director) and I, along with the cast and crew are very happy with the win.”
Flyboy has just finished music videos for local blues band the Jagged Violet and recently reformed Dundee hip-hop act Silibil ‘N’ Brains. These will both be released at the end of this month, and a video for Glasgow band the Button Men will follow.
Mr Fairfield said Dundee’s role in Scottish cinema is “exciting” and part of an “evolutionary period” for the city as a whole.
“I’m Dundee born and bred,” he said.
“I think it’s going through a major evolutionary period and it’s exciting. My dad was a trade union rep at Michelin and was very much about the industry here and I’ve watched it fizzle away.”
Miss Donnithorne’s Maggot was shot in collaboration with the visual effects research lab in Dundee, which is run by Peter Richardson.
