Steven Ballantyne worked closely with Tigress productions to source and secure the 'Perfect' remote location for Ed Stafford's series, Naked and Marooned.

Steven, not only negotiated Ed's Island location with the clans who owned the land but also secured and blocked 8.5 miles of Ocean around the Island to ensure Ed was not contacted throughout the production.

Steven, continued as Line Producer/Local Fixer and managed the production for the entire 60 days of filming, living himself with a isolated Clan, Steven  maintaining daily contact with the production crew in the UK and limited twice weekly in-direct communication with the talent, including managing film received and day to day production requirements.

Steven is a specialist in remote location filming -

Factual Documentary & Film logistics

“Dropping an individual on a deserted island in a very remote location for 60 days was a challenge and one that we could only consider knowing we had the confidence and expertise of someone like Steven. He was the production’s first point of contact in case of any issues, emergency or otherwise. The relationships he built with the local islanders and suppliers, and the clear and concise communication he afforded us was invaluable to the project, especially with the production team based back in the UK. His reliability, efficiency and unwavering support enabled us to feel that our talent and the project were in very safe hands. We’d love to work with Steven again and would highly recommend him to any production.”
