Count Orlando von Einsiedel, a human exclamation mark, is a film-maker, ex pro-snowboarder and the most excited man on the planet. He heads up Grain’s documentary department. He has produced and directed several acclaimed and award-winning documentaries, promos and short features for a diverse range of TV networks and brands. “Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, won a huge number of awards and secured his place as one of the UK’s top young documentary directors. He's the co-founder of Grain Media, and by far the hardest working.
Grain Media started life in 2006 when two chaps from 'extreme sports' backgrounds met and decided that, like Voltron, they should join forces.
Since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength. We've produced a huge variety of films; from hard-hitting investigative documentaries and action sports series, through to TV ads and music videos. We have also carved a name for ourselves as a leading web content provider. And as if that wasn't enough, we even do regular youth-work, training and pro-bono work for charities, just so our Mums love us a bit more.
The future for Grain looks bright. We're winning lots of awards for our work, we're producing more long form documentaries and higher-end promos / TV ads, we've just finished our first feature film and we have another 3 in various stages of production.
So, welcome, have a look around, and if you like what you see, give us a tinkle and we'll come and make something for you.
