White Tail Films is an independent television production company founded in Scotland in 2012. We specialise in natural history and are currently taking our landmark series Scotland’s Wild West (3x60’) to market.

At the heart of everything we do is story. We use dramatic character arcs, emotion and spectacle to drive our narratives forward. Our key to success so far has been to keep it simple and keep it strong!

A landmark natural history series (3 x 60 mins) that showcases never-before-seen behaviour, intimate wildlife stories and high drama. With hundreds of filming days over a five-year period the series is packed with rare encounters and behaviour that allows audiences to look at wildlife characters in a new way, from wing-clapping owls and dancing adders to red deer battles, dolphins fishing and otter cubs learning to hunt. Filmed at resolutions up to 5K on Red cameras we’ve captured wildlife in true cinematic style for the first time on Scotland’s west coast.
Employing all our previous experience of editing and filming BBC bluechip, we’ve pushed our storytelling skills to the limit to deliver a cinematic experience that make these documentaries stand apart. Evocative 100% animal character stories drive the narrative and are carefully fused with the latest science to deliver both an emotional rollercoaster ride and fascinating journey into the lives of animals living life on Scotland’s ultimate frontier.
