Lansdowne Productions

Lansdowne Productions was first formed in 2004 as a means to provide the infrastructure necessary for director Nick Higgins to produce creative documentary films. Since that time we have produced several award winning films for broadcasters including the BBC (UK), STV (Scotland), SVT (Sweden), ZDF (Germany), YLE (Finland), VPRO (the Netherlands) and SBS (Australia), as well as working with cultural institutions such as Scottish Screen, the Scottish Arts Council and Creative Scotland.

Nick is also the producer and director of the BAFTA Scotland nominated, We Are Northern Lights, the first ever mass participation documentary to be undertaken in Scotland and the first ever to receive distribution via the Cineworld multiplex chain. See here for more information

When not producing or directing documentaries Nick also teaches documentary filmmaking and currently he holds a chair in Media Practice at the University of the West of Scotland where he is the director of the Creative Media Academy, one of only three Creative Skillset academies in Scotland.
