Creative partners Tracey Gardiner and Paul Oremland have worked together on feature films and documentaries for over twenty years. In 2008 they set up Iridescent Films to develop new projects. Drawing on an unorthodox mix of talent and ideas Iridescent now has an exciting slate of projects that entertain, inspire and occasionally shake things up.
Executive Producer, Tracey Gardiner has been developing, selling and making factual programmes and feature films for over twenty years. After 16 years at FulcrumTV she left to develop ideas through Iridescent Films and work as a freelance executive producer.
Tracey developed and produced through Iridescent a three part series with Simon Reeve on pilgrimage for BBC2 with Lion Television, was the executive producer on a one hour observational documentary, Keys to the Castle, which won a Scottish RTS in 2015 and a Scottish BAFTA in 2014 and is now working on the fully funded feature documentary 100 Men.
Director, Paul Oremland, has been directing, editing and producing for over 25 years on a wide range of work for British, New Zealand and American Television. This includes documentaries, arts programs and history series. His first feature film Like It Is, was well reviewed and distributed world wide. The second, Surveillance, premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 2007. For the past few years he has been working both in Britain and New Zealand
Paul and Tracey have worked together since 1997. As well as the two feature films Like It Is and Surveillance, they have collaborated on TV programmes including a film about hate crimes, three series of a fast, fun and furious book magazine programme for Channel Four called Pulp, and history series’ on 1945 and the 1960’s as well as creating for UKTV a formatted genealogy series My Famous Family. They continue to develop new projects together including a new feature film Miracle, and the feature length documentary 100 Men.
Surveillance is a film concerned with some of the big questions of the day, not least of which is the almost constant CCTV that follows us wherever we go. For the most part we take no notice, preferring to believe that as long as we stay on the right side of the law, the cameras are harmless. But what if the cameras were no longer harmless? What if the thousands of cameras all over the nation were suddenly all watching you, and tracking your every step?
Starring Simon Callow, Dawn Steele, Sean Brendan Brosnan and Tom Harper – Surveillance is a genuinely independent, low budget gay thriller. It may not be a Hollywood giant, but it packs a mighty punch.
