Dark Touch (Element Pictures) to comence shooting on February 13th

Element Pictures latest film ‘Dark Touch’ will begin shooting on 13th February in Ireland before, moving to Sweden for a further three weeks. The screenplay was written by French filmmaker Marina de Van (Don’t Look Back, In My Skin), who will also direct the film.

The film tells the story of an isolated house in the country that takes on a life of its own, taking the lives of the family inside, leaving only a young girl Niamh as the sole survivor.

The film and will be produced by Jean Luc Ormières, post production for the film will take place in France. Dark Touch is a co-production between Ex Nihilo/Agat Films (France) FilmGate Films (Sweden ) Element Pictures Ltd (Ireland)

Production manager for the film will be Cathleen Dore and production design by Tamara Conboy (Once) Director of photography will be John Conroy (Parked).

The film was funded by Eurimages, the Irish Film Board, Section 481, Film I Väst and Wild Bunch.

The Eurimages was established in 1988 to support the production of feature films, documentaries and animated films that are co-productions between at least two member states. Ireland has been a member of Eurimages since 1992

In recent year the vast majority of projects awarded Euriimages funding have not had either an Irish writers or directors and it  questions the real benefits of these projects to the overall development of Irish film. Substantial funding is raised in Ireland through this scheme, and it could be argued that  Irish production companies are the main benefactors. For Irish writer/directors these schemes makes it more difficult to get their projects off the ground.
