Starting off next Monday with The Last Bus Home about a Dublin rock band in the 1970s, staring Annie Ryan, Brian F. O’Byrne, it was one of the first feature I work on as a construction manager back in a time when actually working on film was fun. I have yet to see it so I’m looking forward to that. I wonder what ever happened to Johnny Gogan?
Keeps an eye on Setanta Ireland for other Irish features coming up, but can they really have enough Irish features to show 5 nights a week for the rest of the summer?
It’s an interesting move by Setanta Ireland and the Irish Film Board I wonder why RTE could not have done this years ago?
Shame it comes on the back of news – that Starz have decided to axe series two of Camelot, leaving a big gaping hole in this year’s Irish film production and I’m sure it leaves a lot of crew concerned how they will pay bills this year.
