ScreenWORKS member Safetray Products Limited, designs manufactures and exports innovative products for the global hospitality industry. The company has being going for just two years and have used Screenworks to enable the CEO, Alison Grieve, to work in a collaborative, inspiring working environment rather than working from home. “Since then we have grown after taking on investment and there are now four fulltime members of staff”.
Edinburgh ScreenWORKS members Blazing Griffin are a game development studio, based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was founded in 2011.
“Our objective is to build great games on mature technology, which interconnect across multiple platforms and exist in a continuity of brand and story.
Keenly aware that making games requires a sound business footing, Blazing Griffin is a High Growth start up, working in partnership with Scottish Enterprise and other agencies.
In 2011, the company acquired the rights to Distant Star (an iOS title) which is currently available for download on iTunes. Later that year, we also acquired “The Ship: Murder Party”, an established title, popular with both players and critics alike. The company will be further developing these titles, while following up on a third, unannounced project.
Yes it’s exactly how it sounds. Because there’s more to life than just working hard 5 days a week, we are re-branding Fridays as Ping Pong Fridays or least the later afternoon bit anyway. One Friday a month from 7pm we set up our Ping Pong table at screenWORKS and embarrass ourselves, as members, potential members and the curious come along, grab a coffee, a beer, a bat (or is it a paddle?) and let battle commence.
There’s no skill involved (speaking for screenWORKS staff here) and those who don’t fancy participating are welcome to stand by and openly jeer – as long as they bring nice biscuits.
So if you have any interest in finding out more about screenWORKS, about workspace membership or you just want to be nosey and see what we do, come along, say hello, we promise to be really friendly and make you feel right at home.

So check out the new site, you’ll find it at: http://screengrabmag.co.uk/

Once upon a time there was a limp vampire franchise that, despite its ‘sex equals death’ message and almost complete lack of any real incident, reaped huge financial rewards and spawned countless imitators. Yet when the vampire genre had, for the time being, been exhausted and the audience had endured a veritable pack of wolf-man features, filmmakers were forced to look elsewhere for fantasy fodder to feed hungry appetites. It is here that the classic literary fairy tale has come back into play, stories integral to the development of our identities and cultures are being repackaged for a preteen audience.
At some point within the last decade we entered an age of instant and undiscerning celebrity. We might have convinced ourselves that we could escape it; that there existed some invisible line that could help separate the famous faces worth bothering about from those who would eke out a living eating kangaroo genitals in a jungle on ITV. But that line became blurred. Perhaps you could argue that is in our nature Read the rest of this entry »
My first experience of a costume show was mildly surreal, slightly drunk due to the free cocktail and squeezed into a seat barely large enough for a child; I watched costumes enough to remake Lord of the Rings troop out for our pleasure and inspection. The ECA’s recent decision to dispense with a runway seems to have turned a good view into a lottery. The format is based on those now used in Salon style fashion shows and in taking away the stage does allow for a clearer view. Read the rest of this entry »
