ITS status as an independent TV production company has meant Angel Eye, which has an office in Glasgow, fully calling itself Angel Eye Film and Television. But, courtesy of an imminent move into radio production, it will be soon rebranding itself Angel Eye Media.
And it is celebrating its switch by winning a commission to broadcast radio shows daily from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The show is to take the form of a podcast, to be hosted by Channel 4’s new foray into web-based radio.
Edinburgh Bites will comprise thirty, ten-minute shows. It will be exec produced by Angel Eye Media’s Seb Barwell, produced by Nick Balneaves and assistant produced by Susan Turnbull. It will be available for downloading – from www.channel4radio.com – from the first week of next month.
Angel Eye Media also has a London office and its credits include The Last Chancers, The Estate Agents, Edinburgh Or Bust, and the movie, Beginner’s Luck.
They are also the company behind Dispatches: Holy Offensive (Channel 4), The Trouble with David (BBC One Scotland) and Chernobyl Kids (BBC One Scotland), and Happy Birthday Broons (BBC One Scotland).
Effective from August 14, the rebrand coincides with the creation of three new positions within the company: comedy executive, comedy and entertainment researcher and production assistant, and will see the launch of a new company logo and a refreshed website.
