FRANK ELI MARTIN



I am  a London based documentary director and cinematographer. My films explore the boundaries of the documentary form, and I’m particularly interested in the hallucinogenic and uncanny.

I am a graduate of the Documentary course at the National Film and Television School.

Cold Stack (2021)

Nominated Sheffield Doc Fest UK Competition 2021
International Panorama Ecofalante 2022
Edinburgh Green Film Festival 2021



Cold Stack charts the melancholic decline of the oil rig industry in the Scottish Highlands.

Divided into three parts, the first depicts the Kishorn fabrication yard, the second section of the film shows the dereliction of the Cromarty Firth. The final section looks to the future, considering the otherworldly beauty of the wind farming that is now dominant in the area.
