Psycho Vertical

Mind Control

Exploring fear, doubt and sheer determination, this is our video scrapbook of recovery. Made in close collaboration with Hazel Findlay for BMC TV and shot over three years as Hazel went from operating table to fighting fit on the Spanish sport route, Mind Control.



The Bothy Project

The Bothy Project is about exploring the wilds on your own terms, in your own style. Artists Tessa Lyons, Natasha Brooks and writer Claire Carter trek into the vast emptiness of the Sheneval bothy in the Scottish Northwest to let go, unravel, and untangle their need for outdoor space.

Find out more about the film and artists involved over at Lowe Alpine.

Operation Moffat

Operation Moffat takes inspiration and wit from the colourful climbing life of Britain’s first female mountain guide, Gwen Moffat. Grappling with her preference for mountains over people, adventure over security and wilderness over ticklists, writer Claire Carter and filmmaker Jen Randall climb, run, scramble and swim their way through Gwen’s most cherished British landscapes.

Operation Moffat won twenty awards at international mountain film festivals including Banff Mountain Film Festival, Kendal Mountain Festival, Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival and 5 Point Film Festival.

Push It

My first leap into doing what I do after studying was making Push It in 2012 - following myself and climbing partner Jackie Sequeira fling ourselves out of our comfort zones by attempting to climb El Capitan - the world’s most famous big wall - and visiting our climbing role models to help us on our way. It’s rough and it’s ready and it’s still one of my favourites.

Youth Film Workshops

Since 2012, working with young people - teaching them new skills and exploring their creative voices through filmmaking - has been an important part of Light Shed Pictures. For The Old Lie, we worked with a crew of 6 teenage girls and a dance company of 15 teenage boys to create this experimental dance film over 5 wild days shooting in Glasgow’s green (and soggy) places with Firefly Arts and choreographer Natali McCleary.
