Kerry - because we have experience
There's a long history of filmmaking in Kerry. "Joyride" starring Olivia Colman, shot in the county in the Summer of 2021. Previous to that “Star Wars” & Yorgos Lanthimos' “The Lobster” shot locally in 2017 & 2015. Filmmaking in Kerry stretches right back to 1910 when the New York based "O’Kalem Company" filmed multiple features here. In the interim, productions such as "Ryan’s Daughter", "Far & Away" & "Excalibur" have successfully shot here.
We understand filmmaking & can deliver the production support needed for a successful shoot.
