Company History

Blazing Griffin is an independent digital entertainment company based in Scotland. Founded in 2011 as a game development studio, the company has grown from a team of three to a group of companies including a game development, film production and television post-production studios with 25 staff based in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Games

The company’s growth was achieved by reviving The Ship: Murder Party and acquiring and developing other successful indie PC games including AAA mobile tie-in APB Retribution and casual game Dino Tribes for Microsoft. In December 2014 the company acquired the titles Gentlemen! and The Nightmare Cooperative. Their latest game, space RTS Distant Star: Revenant Fleet, was released in April 2015 and development has begun on The Ship: Remasted, which was announced in June 2015.

The studio is now focussing on a multi-platform project funding model for all IP.

Films

In 2013, the film department signed a deal with Twenty Twenty Television (Shed Media / Warner Bros), for kung fu drama television show Legend of the Four Fists, which is currently being pitched to broadcasters. In addition to these projects they are also developing Anna and the Apocalypse, a feature based on their BAFTA winning short film with XYZ Films (The Raid, Tusk) attached for sales, and City, a near future thriller with Sarah Radclyffe attached as Executive Producer.

Before joining with Blazing Griffin, producers Naysun and Nic have experience producing and developing a numerous commercial feature film projects, including the Outpost franchise and hit film Sunshine on Leith.

Anne Mensah (Fortitude, The Smoke), Head of Sky Drama, is an executive producer across all projects.

Post Production

Post-production department Picture Lock Media offers post-production services and staff to some of the largest productions in Scotland.

Recent credits include Outlander (Sony/Leftbank/STARZ), Shetland (ITV Studios/BBC) and Waterloo Road (Shed Productions/BBC).

They provide a personalized post production service to clients throughout the UK and the world, tailoring the service to meet production-specific needs. The company provides offline edit facilities, storage solutions, workflow design and management, assistant editors, dailies colourists, post production supervisors and coordinators.

Together, all three companies are working across the same projects from different angles, as well as projects and clients unique to each. As the company continues to expand, the focus on cross platform storytelling and technology will only grow and improve.
