Cameras Roll on John Carney’s ‘Zonad’
10 Sep 2007 :
Simon Delaney stars
‘Once’ writer/director John Carney begins production today on his latest feature film ‘Zonad’. The low budget comedy reunites the director with his ‘Bachelors Walk’ star Simon Delaney and shoots for 24 days around Co. Wicklow.

Written by John Carney and Kieran Carney, ‘Zonad’ follows an escaped convict (Delaney) who hides out in a rural Irish village and fools the locals by pretending to be a visitor from outer space. Supporting cast features Irish actors David Pearse (Small Engine Repair), Rory Keenan (Pride and Joy), Janice Byrne, Geoff Minogue (Once) and Donna Dent (Ella Enchanted).

Director of photography for the shoot is Peter Robertson (Garage, Inside I’m Dancing) and he will shoot on High Def format. Production designer is Susie Cullen (whose art director credits include Intermission and Laws of Attraction), costumes are by Tiziana Corviseri (Bachelors Walk Christmas Special) and the film will be edited at Screen Scene by Paul Mullen (Once, Bachelors Walk Christmas Special).

Element Pictures’ new distribution arm run by Audrey Sheils, former Account Director for Empire Design and Marketing Director for Metrodome Films, will release the film in Ireland next year.

Produced by Element Pictures’ Ed Guiney, Andrew Lowe and John McDonnell, ‘Zonad’ is financed by Element Pictures and the Irish Film Board.
