Lonely Tower Film & Media are a film making company based in north east England, specialising in historical documentary films.
We love stories, and coming from a broadcast media background, we love getting to grips with new projects and telling those stories in creative and exciting ways. Whether it’s documenting history, helping businesses showcase what they do, or recording events as they unfold before us, we get a kick out of being there and making it happen.
The quality of our work is paramount and this is demonstrated in the showing of our documentaries both on local television and across the nation.
Although we’re based in County Durham, we work all over Britain and beyond. We’ve recently completed projects which have taken us to Bristol, London , Scotland and the battlefields of France and Belgium.
We’ve been fortunate enough to work with some fantastic people, groups and organisations, often on more than one project. When you build a great working relationship, it no longer seems like work and that’s a really important aspect of what we do… having fun. It’s also meant we’re lucky enough to call many of these people our friends.
If you’d like to work with us then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We love the varied and interesting people we get to work with, and happily, they love what we do, too!
I first came across Lonely Tower in 2016 and impressed by the way they worked, I enquired if they would be able to assist a charity of which I am a trustee, The Zambezi Sunrise Trust. The charity needed a promotional video for use on their website and social media. Lonely Tower have since produced three such videos. They have employed both a scripted voiceover technique and the use of interviews coupled with footage of the charity’s projects. The videos have been universally well received -
On behalf of the Normanby Local History Group I would like to thank you both for producing the Gallantry in the Face of the Enemy film. The film itself is superb and the first showing to the members and invited guests was extremely emotional with several members close to tears. You were great to work with from start to finish. Your professionalism and knowledge guided us through the process at every stage and made it enjoyable for those closely involved in the production. We now have a brilliant and professionally produced film which we can show throughout our local area. It will make the local community, young and old, aware of our fallen heroes.-
I have worked with Mark and Marie from the above film company since 2016 when we began to plan a documentary-
Mark and Marie were brilliant to work with from start to finish. Commissioning a documentary film was a new aspect of my job role and a steep learning curve for me. From gently guiding us with helpful suggestions at the beginning of the process, to professional courtesy and efficiency when we asked for last minute additions and changes, Lonely Tower were so helpful with every part of the project. They obviously love their job, as their enthusiasm is contagious. -
As the installation of a small block rail seating at Bristol City’s Ashton Gate Stadium marked a major, historic step in the long-
Working with Mark and Marie has been rewarding and enjoyable -
