In one of our interviews with Danny Boyle he told us that Trainspotting production designer Kave Quinn is.... “a genuis”‬

‪Her great work on Trainspotting only underlines that, with her stunning choice of colours and little motifs drawing you into the characters.

‪Taxi Driver murals adorn the Volcano Bar; a hint for Renton that all is not what it seems with Diane?! ‬


“I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to be part of this film, to work with the genius that is Danny and the best, the kindest, the most generous actors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.”

- Robert Carlyle

acclaimed underwater cinematographer,

Mike Valentine, spoke to us in detail about filming the worlds worst toilet scene and probably one of the most iconic scenes of the decade.

"It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low, the scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat onto civilization. Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers: We, on the other hand are Colonized by wankers"

Shouted Robert Carlyle / Begbie spraying beer!

“I wanted to capture the aggression but also the humour of Begbie"
