Morrocco Media is an award-winning adventure film-making, television and documentary studio and video-production agency, based in rural Perthshire, Scotland. Our purpose is to produce creative, informative, educational and entertaining films that showcase sport, adventure, science, education, environment and Scotland, and, ideally, all six combined.
Morrocco Media is owned by Dr. Stefan Morrocco. Stefan is passionate about sport and has a strong interest in science, psychology and education. Therefore, Stefan's values are to share knowledge that will improve people's life. Technically, Stefan is an accomplished cinematographer and editor, but has a real passion for direction and development of stories and concepts. With support from talented freelancers, we have a strong and capable team able to deliver factually entertaining television programmes, documentaries and adventure films.
Stefan discovered his passion for filming when he was doing an upland geomorphology Ph.D. at St Andrew's University. As Captain of the University Cycling Club, he found himself leading their entry for a University-wide filming competition. Anyone who finds themselves still glued to their computer screen editing at 4 AM is definitely passionate about what they are doing. The interest in filming has blossomed from that first film competition.
Morrocco Media work closely with Oscar McBurney. Oscar has been inspired by the outdoors from a young age. His interest in extreme sports and adventure led him on whitewater kayaking expeditions to South America, Norway, New Zealand, and across Europe, on some of the world’s most impressive rivers. Oscar spent his early kayaking career working at one of Switzerland’s most prestigious river schools, where he first began working with a camera for rafting trips.
Oscar’s love of photography developed alongside his sports career, taking him to some of the world’s greatest sporting events as a photographer and athlete. In the lead up to Rio 2016 he filmed the Olympic test event and an athlete not-for-profit project called Share The Stoke.
To reach the leading edge of adventure filming, it’s important to understand what it feels like to be at the sharp end of performance and preparation. Having raced at world championship level for New Zealand in slalom, and more importantly spending months away filming in high pressure, geographically isolated environments, Oscar loves to showcase the creativity and sharp clarity of his work. Combining a competitive mindset with filming allows him to create work that reflects his love of the outdoors, adventure and working with like-minded photographers.
