This is a page full of snippets of media we have come across along with some of our own behind the scenes images. Not everything ever done in the Govan Shed (by a long shot), but hopefully this selection of clips and images gives a good feel for what can be done in the building.

 


 

Walt Disco - "Weightless" Music Video
An epic music video which could only be for Walt Disco! The Govan Shed provided all lighting for this music video, in addition to the blacked out space for the various set builds.


Bell Bottom Feature Film
Bollywood movie, Bell Bottom, used a number of locations across Scotland. The Govan Shed provided space for a 37m x 16m greenscreen box, with diffused top lighting, which contained sand-storm scenes featuring a number of 4x4 vehicles. This was then replaced with a fully constructed aeroplane set which allowed filming of all the interior views for the aircraft scenes.


North Atlas - "Midnight Sun" Music Video
North Atlas combined subtle views of the Govan Shed with an striking lighting setup, for a fantastic performance based music video.

HYYTS - "Lonely People" Live Session
Fantastic live session with HYYTS!


Creeper - "Poisoned Heart" Music Video
The Govan Shed provided a large blacked out space suitable for shooting in-car views and other performance shots, before the video changes to show a behind-the-scenes style video using the Govan Shed as a location.


Be Charlotte - "Lights Off" Music Video
The Govan Shed was the ideal space for a music video needing two tonnes of sand for a very distinctive looking end result!

Fantastic live session with this fantastic talented group of musicians.


ONR - "Sober" Music Video feat. Carina Jade
The Govan Shed provided a dark space for significant parts of this music video giving a very distinctive look.


1917 Feature Film
As a fully exterior shot film, the Govan Shed did not warrant much potential as a part of the film but we were delighted to have the cast and crew use the space as a unit base and manufacturing space for their Govan set.


Titan Breed - "Legacy" Music Video
Serving as the background for the entire video, the Govan Shed provided the dark industrial atmosphere needed for this video.


Creeper - "Born Cold" Music Video
The Govan Shed served mainly as a build space for the two sets for this music video, but also featured in specific shots.


The Ninth Wave - "Human Behaviour" Music Video
Shot by Forest of Black in the Govan Shed, this video utilised the building as a backdrop for many of the shots.


Tide Lines - "Running at the Dark" Music Video
The Govan Shed hosted the shoot of this music video. The team used the space for a mixture of projection based images and as a background for the main performance shots.


Peoples Ford - Short online advertisements
The Govan Shed provided the backdrop for a series of online advertisements for Peoples Ford.


Tennent's Halloween Viral Video "The Night Bus"
The Govan Shed provided a space for filming the internal shots on the bus in the viral video. The large roller shutter door on the Govan Shed meant that the crew were able to get the vehicle indoors and utilise the dark space to make creating stylised lighting effects around the bus very practical with smaller and lower power lighting equipment. The exterior of the Govan Shed also served as a useful location for the exterior scenes at the start. The video received over 1.7 million views in the first four days after going online, with over 18,000 shares in the same time.


Popup Cinema Events
While not officially an events venue as such, the Govan Shed has provided a stunning location for popup cinema events. Easily hosting between 200 and 350 people per showing in a quarter of the space, the Govan Shed offers lots of flexibility for additional entertainment areas, bar areas and food areas alongside the main film showing.
