Hill Sixteen Features in association with RTE will be shooting a feature length film called ‘13HOURS’ in Boyle this coming June, written and directed by Ciaran Creagh.
Executive producer Ferdia Doherty says the film crew is very excited to be filming in the town: “We are very excited about filming in this beautiful part of the world and with the full support of Roscommon County Council, local associations, and of course the great people of Boyle. We are grateful to all involved”.
A full crew will be on hand as well as some very talented Irish actors and visitors to the town will even notice some 80s-type vehicles on the roads!
Ferdia says the film will employ as much local talent as possible on the production side and will utilising the many local B&Bs and hotels for accommodation.
Extras will also be needed and anyone interested in getting involved can email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, age, and height.
Ferdia explained: “Because this is a low-budget feature we will not be able to pay extras but we will be able to supply cups of coffee and tea and maybe a few biscuits!
“Our plan is for the least amount of disruption to the local community as we film. Our crew are very professional and well versed in managing these types of shoots. We look forward to being in the wonderful town of Boyle for around two weeks”.
