Since 2015, Chaos Box have produced The Pandora Men, a Sci Fi Adventure series available to watch on YouTube, which has over 100 episodes spread over several seasons.
Created, written and directed by Douglas Kyle - the shows stars Jim Currie, Josh Currie, Jane Fullerton, Ashley Sabiston, Stuart Campbell, Marie Ashman, Myla Corvidae, Niall MacKay, Douglas Kyle and his older brother Andrew Kyle, as well as several guest cameos. None of whom are professionally trained actors.
Plots revolve around whatever crazy ideas the cast and crew come up with - nothing is too far fetched. We've had shape shifting monsters, killer Winnie The Pooh, Self-Aware Mirror Reflections, haunted playgrounds and so much more.
Made with love, passion and creativity.
Filmed on a weekly basis, some episodes being entirely made up the day before filming, and use a blend of Camera Techniques and visual effects.
It has featured in the local media and uses a lot of famous Orkney and Aberdeenshire Landscapes and building / businesses.

In this special Episode celebrating the 100th Episode of the show, we are transported back to the 1800s, in the midst of a bitter conflict in Africa... There was much debate about what the 100th Episode should be, but it was decided that this episode best represented the very heart and purpose of the show. Random, no limits, silly, Sci Fi and really cool! The idea had been floating in Douglas's head since he first saw the film Zulu (one of his all time favorites) and so the production of this was one of his greatest Pandora moment. Full of homages, this episode was filmed in May in 8 hours with only Douglas & Andrew on set.
