Best of luck to the management of Ballyhenry Studios and to all in involved in the first project Vikings which goes into pre-production proper on Monday. A quick scan of film studios across Europe reveals a different story to what has been happening in Ireland for the past 7 years. This moment in time should bring about a real shake up on how the industry is regulated.
Ballyhenry is not the panacea, but it is a milestone in Irish film and it must used to rejuvenate an industry that once created real jobs, and happy a working atmosphere . Key to that is greater transparency from all stakeholders to create a better environment for all working within.
