The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a globally renowned event, bringing together performers from over 48 countries. Taking place throughout August at Edinburgh Castle, the show reaches an annual audience of over 220,000, and is televised to millions.
For over a year, Campfire have been documenting the diverse performers, extensive preparation, and spectacular show, in stills and 4k footage.
Initially involved to provide a series of backstage short films alongside the BBC, we have since travelled the country meeting musicians, dancers, technicians and organisers from a variety of counties and cultures. With a focus on capturing the Tattoo from a unique perspective that cannot be witnessed in person or on TV, our films show the the intimate, human side of the precise show, and the meticulous care and attention made, year-round, by thousands.
